college shoppingIt's an exciting time of year when you're going back to college or starting your first year of college. September is my favorite month of the year. Fall brings back memories of going back to school as a kid. I love the weather, and I love the craving I still get to learn something new. I think that's why I became an instructor for people who want to become freelance writers with my online class, Get Paid to Write: Become a Freelancer. I love teaching and learning.
