Freedom of Expression.

Erik Engstrom

"Young players need freedom of expression to develop as creative players... they should be encouraged to try skills without fear of failure."
Arsene Wenger

I'm a week away from starting my last first day of school. Ever. Or at least of my undergrad career. 

To be brutally honest, I'm a little psyched to be done. For as long as I can remember, I haven't enjoyed school. I wouldn't say I'm the brightest in the bunch. Tommy. He's a brilliant. Our sister. Let's just call her a genius. And then there is me. Trucking along. Powering through it. And now finally see the finish line. I'm running, no sprinting, my way home. 

While I haven't joyfully chosen to stay in school, there are some major skills and life lessons I would never have learned elsewhere. Freedom of expression being one of them. I love my major. Communication Studies all the way, baby! Let me offer up this one piece of advice: if you're confused with what you want to do in life, choose Comm Studies as your major. I learned more about myself, how people work, how people communicate, and how to be a better person and better listener because of this major. It's the best. Public speaking is now a passion of mine. I love talking and being in front of people. I feel most comfortable when I am in front of crowds. #unashamed

So here is the thing, I only have one more semester of college and then I am done learning, right? Wrong. I cannot wait to finish school and go out into the real world and start learning from real life experience. From people I come into contact with. From experiences that I have in the work force. From news articles that I read in the newspaper or online. As I finish school I am excited to continue learning about human communication (specifically narcissism in dating relationships). I'm passionate about this stuff and can't imagine not learning morning.

Who knew school could be this much fun?
