i like to teach, i like things technical and i
adore writing (and feel that im good at it). For me it
seems like a logical choice. It was only a matter of
being exposed to the idea of being a technical writer
and that has happened this semester. Im taking a
course in technical writing this semester as a
requirement for my engineering curriculum and I like
what ive seen so far though none of it has been on
i am looking forwards to the last project we are
to do for the semester, an 8-10 page instructions
manual. the philosophy minor was something i wanted to
do before i got the idea to be a technical writer
because i really want to write a book of my ideas
sometime in the future.
I find it extremely interesting that it doesnt
matter what you studied in college as long as you
studied something and finished. this is because it is
the opposite of what i felt to be true. i always
thought that an anthropology major was actually going
to go out and be an anthropologist when they graduated
or that a psychology major was actually going to go
into the field of psychiatry when they get out.
i suppose that graduate work is what people do
when they want to get into their specific fields. this
seems logical when i think about it because it did
seem that the stuff that my upperclassmen were doing
was still a bit diluted.
