If you want to teach, an MFA is a good investment.MA w/o a phd would get you the same job you have now + a bit of more $. If you could get almost a full ride, then MA would be worth it. It would basically add 15k to your market value yearly.
I kind of regret not getting an MFA, but honestly, from what I know about your situation, you are probably good with what you’ve got and debt sucks.

All good points. I’d probably just be doing it to have something to do. And I don’t think I really WANT to go to grad school? But I like learning. So I guess I’ll just keep doing that for funsies. A degree wouldn’t improve my skills or marketability as an editor (although it would certainly look good on a resume), and really just getting out there as a writer/blogger is what I need to do to further that cause.

I shouldn’t be thinking about going to grad school, right? Right. Things I don’t need include debt and and MA. Or an MFA? With which I would end up doing the exact things I’m doing now, probably.

But the masters in English at Sac State with a concentration in literature OR creative writing doesn’t even require the GRE! No math! And I hella have all the requirements!

But money. I have no money.

I thought about shortening Sac Efron to just Sac, but that just sounds like ball sac. So I didn’t go that direction.

I haven’t technically had any “work” to do for a couple weeks, but I’m trying to write and do a lot of reading and art (and craigslist perusing) to make it feel like I have a purpose in life.

The upside is that when I’m procrastinating on my assigned tasks—write for 30 minutes, email various randos to convince them I can write for their websites—I procrastinate by cleaning the apartment. So I’m not being completely unproductive.

At some point most days I fall asleep on the couch for a while. When Sac Efron comes home I try to pretend I wasn’t just sleeping in the middle of the day while he was working hard for the money.

By the way, fuck it, Sac Efron’s real name is James. He will hereto for be referred to as such. I’m tired of typing Sac Efron, especially on my phone.

I finally finished The Goldfinch! After taking way to long to read it! And I’m processing my feelings!

I made my maiden voyage to the Folsom Public Library today. It was odd? Maybe I&#8217;ll get used to it, but I thought it was strange that in the audio books section was one of L. Ron Hubbard&#8217;s books next to Going Clear. (They also had one of L. Ron&#8217;s books on the sparse new books shelf.)
I also saw three (3) different biographies of Shania Twain.

I’m way too proud of myself when I email/text someone back in a reasonable amount of time. Like, I shouldn’t get a gold star or anything, but part of me really wants one.

So I guess I’m going to write for this lifestyle website. And I’m pitching stories for the first time? And I don’t know, this is all new to me. But I’m not getting paid, so it’s not like there’s huge pressure to be amazing, right?
