Writer's Block: School Ties

What is (or was) your college major? Do you use it for your career?


I started out as a history major, then added secondary education as a second major my sophomore year. Two secondary ed classes later & I realized I was not cut out for teaching, so I changed my second major to journalism. In the end, I had a double major in history & journalism with double minors in geography & humanities. Really useful stuff, eh? My favorite history prof used to tell us history majors that at least we'd be able to think interesting thoughts while standing in the unemployment line ;)

I work for a telecommunications company, so obviously I don't use anything I learned in college for my career. I barely have to use my brain.

Apropos of nothing, I went to Ball State (BALL U!), alma mater of David Letterman, Garfield creator Jim Davis, the dude that played Eric on Drake & Josh (!!!) and Joyce DeWitt (the dark haired girl on Three's Company).

The History and Humanities majors must be why you kill at trivia lmao.

You should get a tumblr and follow me. It's all Corey Perry all the time. Except when it's Carey Price or Claude Giroux or Joffrey Lupul or Sidney Crosby or Tyler Bozak. Mostly Corey Perry though.
