...make your dreams come true.

First of all, I'd like to begin by saying how much I appreciate the feedback I got from my 30-ish Day Letter Challenge. I had people DMing me on Facebook and Twitter and it meant a lot to me. I had replies from people who were either touched by something I wrote or who were able to resonate with something I wrote. Either way, it made it all worthwhile. I never intended for anyone to actually read them, but the fact that so many people did, that just made it mean so much more.
In saying this, a further thank you is also necessary to all those people because without that feedback I don't think I'd've been able to finally make a decision as to where I want to head in the future. I've always had an interest in English and in writing, however I've never trusted in my "abilities" enough to take the chance and go for it. This little exercise originally just gave me an excuse to write again, but eventually it became something that allowed me to explore the different aspects of my own being that I had either forgotten about or supressed. Therefore, the feedback I received gave me a little bit of confidence and made me think, "hey, maybe you don't suck that much afterall..?"
So now I have finally decided what I want to do at University, a decision that has been nagging at me for years now! .. as well as a question that everyone else has been nagging me about too. I've decided I'd like to try for a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in English, and perhaps minoring in Japanese.. Well, so far that's the idea in my mind. I figured it's something that I've always wanted to do but just been too afraid to go after. And now, with the help of a few people and inspirations, I thought, "sod it! Time to stop being so afraid of nothing! I always have the option of changing my mind later if I dislike it, so there's no reason to not at least try for something I love". And so, that is currently where I am at :)
This was rather pointless, but I felt I should share a word of thanks to those people who deserve it.. they all know who they are :)

best, you've got to be the best. you've got to change the world and use this chance to be heard. your time is now!
