Introductions

School has officially started and I feel more inclined to write than ever.

I’m not writing for school – for now – but I’m writing for myself. This semester is jampacked with three English classes and a biology class. Which means – a LOT of writing. So far, I’ve accomplished quite a few introduction discussion boards. They all sound kind of like this:

“Hi, my name’s Danielle Mahriahna-Skillings Johnson, but I just go by Danielle. This is my 3rd introduction discussion board and I want to kill myself (not really). I have most of you in my other classes so you already know everything about me that you need to. So, have a picture of my cat Theodore.”

Okay, maybe I didn’t write all of that but it’s close.

It’s so funny to me how it’s important to introduce yourself to people you’re never going to meet.  I understand the reasoning, but this is all online. I don’t want to stand up and tell you my favorite color. I want to sit here and finish my homework and pet Theodore. Sorry, I’m grouchy.

All of my classes are filled to the brim with discussion boards. Tell me about your life. Tell me about the major you’re pursuing. What do you want to do with it? What’s your opinion of online college (I’m in it aren’t I)? If you were to write a novel, what would it be about?

Now, I’m not here to complain. I’m here to express myself further and let all of my readers know that I might be inactive until further notice – which means my site visits will go downhill.

NEVERTHELESS!

I.

Am.

Still.

Writing.

I’m going to update Keeping Up With A Skillings (along with my other two brand new blogs) all throughout the semester. It just won’t be as often — so bare with me!

I appreciate every one of you so please continue to keep up with me,

Danielle
