May I just begin by saying how blown away I am by your honesty and your ability to be vulnerable. This can often be difficult, but the courage you have demonstrated in your writing makes you admirable. I also want to commend you for taking on a Literature course, despite the fact you struggle with spelling and words in general. Again, this shows courage and a sense of intelligence as you wish to challenge yourself and “open up new doors.”
I think you have done really well for your first blog. The way you describe how you’re feeling on your first day, “My body began to sweat, I felt every drop run down my chest” was a really beautiful piece of writing that appealed to my emotions and even made me feel nervous for you!
You should be really proud of yourself for taking on this journey and don’t forget to enjoy the ride along the way. I too sometimes doubt my abilities and can often lose confidence in myself, so I understand where you are coming from. I constantly remind myself that everyone is on a learning journey and that no one is judging you, as everyone is at different points on that journey. Take the compliments and the criticism with open arms and be the best writer you can!
Congratulations on everything you have achieved so far, I look forward to reading more of your blogs.
