Once, I was on a panel made up of English majors at my alma mater. Our job was to talk to the room of soon to be graduates about what we’d done with our BAs in English and not terrify them. Here are some things I would like to imagine my English major has resulted in my doing:
1. Contributing to the well being of various and assorted independent coffee shops in business by lingering for an absurd amount of time and continuing to order things.
2. Developing a sound righteous indignation muscle.
4. Asking questions that are seldom, if ever, considered. (Some of these questions make people angry. That’s okay.)
6. Wandering the streets of several cities whilst considering the lives of imaginary people.
