I realized that part of the reason I’ve lost so much love for educating the public is because I stopped making time for NPR. I can’t think of a network more elaborate with such unbiased critical thinking.
My friend Jake is an aspiring music journalist that updates his blog with album reviews, “Comedy, observations and things of interest.”
I think a lot of you would enjoy his stuff.
Here’s a link to his blog
With over 4k followers, it feels right.
I’m not entirely into whatever I was doing here a few months ago. I’m full of many phases. Right now, I really want to write some perspective pieces about the media, economy and education. It’ll probably be mostly opinion type ramblings.
To those of you asking about if you should study Journalism. Here’s my answer:
If you can
A.) Be okay with competing with classmates consistently.
B.) Be okay with transitioning from one style to the next and perhaps go from being an A student to a C student without losing your mind
C.) Enjoy structured, factual writing.
A lot of people decide to study Journalism because they enjoy the creativity of writing. You need to understand that the creative freedom will be extremely limited. Only enter this field is you will feel noble writing something someone else would of written something similar to.
At this point, I’m finishing the degree because I’m almost there. I want to be a business owner ultimately, with an underlining theme of good news.
Thanks for the continuous support.
