Journalism ay?

29 Jan

From the minute I chose to study Communication and Media at Bournemouth Uni,  I knew I wanted to grow up to become a journalist…I wish!

The truth is,  I envy people who can say they genuinely know what they want to do when they’re older.  The reason I actually chose this course,  is because it offers a such a vast range of units, and therefore, gives me access to a range of careers. 

The perks of being a journalist, I think, are fairly obvious. A journalist doesn’t wake up in the morning knowing exactly what stories they’ll be reporting, who they’re going to meet, or where they’re going to go. Journalism involves constantly working under tight deadlines, to update the public on events as they arise.  Journalists get to meet new people, go to new places, and discover new information before anyone else! Unfortunately,  right now,  that excitement sounds a bit too daunting for me to get my head around.  

I am,  however,  feeling pretty excited about studying News and Journalism in my final term of University.  I hope that it will improve my confidence in my own ability to write (something that other people will actually want to read!),  and I look forward to learning more about the in’s and out’s of how journalists work.

I am also quietly confident that the job of a journalist will begin to appeal to me (so no pressure on Chindu there!).

I’ll let you know how it goes!
