Its ironic when you are a student of journalism you are expected to have great writing skills and considered as a wordsmith.
But when you have to write you are always thinking what do i write???????
once you get that first line in things flow……….Its been couple of months since class of 2008 started and I have to say my journalistic skills have definitely improved than day one.
Reading blogs from past students saying journalism is not finacially rewarding and its hard to justify to yout friends or family why journalism???? …….I can understand
Especially if you have a degree in computer engineering and want to switch to Journalism everyone goes are u nuts????
Its tough to make people understand about the joy in doing something you like and changing the way people think and all that!!!
They go Yeah Yeah!!!! All That’s fine…………But how much are you going to make?????
It’s funny…………If I could get a nickel everytime I heard I am doing a big mistake and something foolish I would be a millionaire by now…………
To the naysayers I would like to say ….
The words of William Wallace “Everybody dies, but not everybody lives…….”
