I’ve been at a crossroads of sorts for the past month. At the start of May, I finished an internship as a Marketing/Communications writer for St. John’s, an internship I truly enjoyed to the fullest. I also have this side project called Classicbutnew.com (maybe you’ve heard of it), that I’ve been working on for nearly three years now. And most importantly, I realized, I’m going into what could be my last semester in college.
With my college life ending soon, I’m getting close to the end of a chapter of my ongoing life, and it was time to decide whether or not to keep certain things in my life. I’m getting busier and busier with work, school, learning Japanese, video games, a side hobby of playing basketball on the weekends… and so much more.
I needed to decide how to move forward, and I needed to decide what was worth my time. For example, I’ve pondered the importance of this same website, and how it affects me as well as other readers. While my reach is still small, I absolutely love writing and working on stuff for this website. But I did consider shutting the whole thing down. However, instead of stopping production, I decided to increase it by 100 percent.
When I got together with five other friends to make this site, we were planning on working on it together. Unfortunately, we all got busy with other things, so projects we had ideas for never saw the light of day. Only three of the six initial members (including myself) are still active on the team, but what remains is more than enough to make something even more special than it has been in the past.
