My college career is coming to an end. I still don’t have a job, let alone a job offer, and that’s why the other day I had a panic attack, which led to this blog/personal site. I’m going to be a journalist, rain, hail or snow. Period. If I need to market myself, then so be it. It’s more play than work, anyways.
Since the day I made the switch from business to journalism, I knew what I was getting into. Newspapers folding, editors and reporters getting sacked, basically, the news world’s identity crisis. Was this the end or was this the beginning? I remember a fellow classmate and editor, Andrew Daniels, saying he was excited about this uncertainty. I didn’t share his optimism, until, I too became a senior in college.
I hold the skills and the qualities to make my own journey through life. I can follow a blueprint, or I can sketch it myself, but the important thing to keep in mind is that, certainly, there will always be uncertainty. You just have to know how to make it work for you. I hope I’m doing this right now.
