I have decided to start taking classes again. I know that I need something more than a bachelors in writing to get a a job in a field that interests me. I thought about aiming for a masters but it’s expensive and takes two years. I don’t need more debt, I already have enough of that and a certificate faster. I can’t wait two more years to try to get a job doing something I love.
That’s why I’m getting certified in things that interest me and that will be useful. For example, I just signed up for a certification in Social Media Marketing. This will be useful to continue improving my blog and hopefully help me get a job in this field. Once I finish this, I can go on to another certification.
I think this will be a fun experience because it’s online so I will be able to do it in my own time from the comfort of my house. A lot of colleges offer different certifications so I can look and see what I find and I’m not obligated to take a bunch of core classes I don’t care about and get the skills necessary for a job that interests me.
In addition to looking for certifications this week, I have not forgotten to keep exercising. I have still been keeping this up, getting ready for tomorrow and the rest of the holiday season.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.

Heya! I’m used to be a copywriter and a marketer, and currently write for a living. Just thought I’d drop a message to tell you that you can go to some pretty interesting places without needing formal qualifications.
After all, the only qualification I had before become a writer was six years of hairdressing experience. I didn’t even finish high school.
But if you already have a road map to your goals, then I’m all for it. Just don’t let certifications weigh you down, because they can be an unnecessary cost sometimes.

Thank you! This is why I’m not aiming for a degree like a masters but I do want to learn more and have something to show when I look for a job.
