To begin, I would like to thank one of my peers at MU, Mr. Stratton Smith for finally hooking me and giving the sufficient inspiration to sit down and actually check out this whole blg shindig. I’ve never done it before, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous, but there’s a first time for everything.
To begin, I suppose it’s prudent to introduce myself. Hello, all of you random people scrolling on Medium! My name is Collin Groves, now sophomore at Manchester University in Indiana. Currently, I’m studying English Writing and Secondary Education with also a minor in Journalism. Of course, I know what the vast majority of you are thinking. It’s probably something along the lines of, “Damn it, another idiot that wants to teach in Indiana.” Or maybe even, “Great! I love reading rants about education reform by uninformed miscreants.” Well, ladies and gentlemen, I promise that I intend to steer clear of such things, although I can’t promise that I can avoid every rant that creeps up on me in the night when I’m writing (I’m prone to angry outbursts), but I can promise a relatively entertaining glob of prose meant to amuse, express, and otherwise invoke exciting thoughts in my readers.I will share personal stories, fiction, and poetry, and you’re welcome to comment, discuss, and ask questions at your heart’s desire. I enjoy writing, and I want to share that same pleasure with you every chance I get.
