That's a good question. It's one that was (surprise!) asked of me on both of my publishing graduate applications. What I've come to realize, even though those applications have already been sent, is that there is no singular reason. In fact, I've decided to ardently pursue publishing because it combines all of my interests. Seriously, in some way, it combines ALL of them. So, for my own sense of clarity I'm listing those now.

1. Reading about: personal finance, Latin, words, writing, social/racial inequities in major cities, feminism, fashion, the economics of the U.S. education system, the CIA and FBI, spiritual discovery (appropriately placed next to governmental investigatory bodies). 
2. Editing all of the above.
3. Traveling and the accompanied sense of newness.
4. Writing and discussing all of these things.
6. The monetization and marketing of all media.

So I hope it's not just in my imagination that publishing, in some way, includes all of these. If anyone knows otherwise, please let me know so I can submit my application to live on parents couch this summer.
