So in my second year of University, i’ve decided to take up Journalism! I don’t know why I didn’t study it in my first year, I made the mistake of picking French as an elective and finding out learning a new language requires intensive study, and i’m too busy procrastinating for that. I’m pretty keen to get going with Journalism, especially because it has a strong digital aspect with photography and video, and after investing quite a lot of money in a new Camera, i’m looking for almost any excuse to use it.
I’ve picked up Photography as a Minor as well, something else I should have done in my first year, but I had no idea what I wanted out of my degree, and I’m sure i’ll change everything around in my third year as well. You’re always going to find something new and exciting. Just like Politics and the Media, a subject i’ll be doing in my second semester. Finally i’ll get the chance to be marked by ripping into Murdoch’s corrupt empire of a business.
If there are any first years reading this, you’re all probably nervous and don’t really know what’s going on, just like I was this time last year. You just need to relax, and everything will be explained a million times over to you so you understand every aspect of Uni. The best part about Uni is definitely the lifestyle, working out your own timetable, getting time to be social, and not having to travel to Uni every day (unless you’re like me and screwed up their timetable). Definitely check out those $11 jugs of beer at the Uni bar!
The best part about the Communications and Media degree however, is the homework. I mean, who wouldn’t love blogging and tweeting as homework? I pretty much did that already, and know I get graded on it, I’m living the dream! The only bad part of my second year is that I don’t have Sue Turnbull as a lecturer! She was the absolute best lecturer that i’ve had so far, she always has so many great videos to show, and interacts with the Twitter feed while she’s talking! #BadAssSue
Lastly, WordPress is super easy to use once you know what to do, so if you have any questions, feel free to hit me up on any type of social media!
