My biggest regret for the semester is that I was not able to invest as much time in my blog as I wanted initially. For me it was a first time to write for the public and it was my first writing others would see. It was not just another news story which only my professors would read and grade. It was something more, but still I treated it as another homework and my only mission was to submit everything on time. I could not accomplish even that. Sometimes I was complaining about the tough subject, as I shared in my midterm post, it was quite a challenge to make this blog. Other times I was blaming on lack of time but, in the end there is no place for excuses, only results matters and mine are not so great.
My blog is failure for me, but still I managed to learn from my mistakes. I still managed to answer my question “how our professors spend their time in the college?”. By answering this question I wanted to hear not only the interesting stories of our professors, but to get relevant advice from them to teach my reader “how to college really good”.
I learned not to dwell on my mistakes. I learned to appreciate my university and try to get best out of its extracurricular activities. I learned to take something out of each class, no matter how boring each one seems. I learned to take the classes out of my comfort zone. I learned that there are no advice that works for everyone and we should follow our own path.
Except having incredible personal and blog journey, I had chance to become a better journalist. I learned the importance of social media. I tried being backpack journalism for the first time in my life and I did not expect to like it so much. I learned how to work in the teams of journalists and how importance it is to consider every small detail, while on press conference. In the midterm post, I wrote about more skills which I acquired in the beginning of semester.
It was a great journey, but it’s time to end it.
Don’t stay tuned in for next week’s blog post.
