I got my degree in psychology and romance languages ​​and am now in my second year of a doctoral program in psychology . I hate it . I really miss being able to write differently than the strict form you have to write for scientific journals . I want a career writing something more intensive , such as creative writing , journalism , or perhaps teaching middle school or high . I have a few examples of scientific writing , but published nothing . I have a lot of writing on the analysis of literature and cinema of the university ( in English , French and Spanish ) and in high school I took creative writing classes and wrote for the school newspaper . But that's it . How I can get out of my misery and something that will be much more enjoyable ?
