What it’s like to be a journalism major
- Listen to a 50-year-old professor tell me what a blog is
- Textbook explanations of how social media works
- Spend half of the class watching the professor struggle to work the computer/projector
- Read print textbooks about “digital media”
- Write articles that get seen by my professor and my professor only
- Learn how to tweet
- Do what I would normally be doing, if I weren’t a journalism major
Note: If you want to be a journalist, write everyday. Time is a great teacher. Get your work published. Let people read your shit.
Only major in journalism if you can handle older people explain what Tumblr is.

A little thing about race and stereotypes and people I know
I always appreciate when people my age or people I know, initiate projects particularly if it has an aim to create more social good. A few people I know started a page that attempts to crack stereotypes and defy what is “normal” for their race, gender, sex, appearance, etc.
So when a girl posts something saying that people should not think that she has an “easy life just because she is white,” it was worth questioning at least from my perspective. I have yet to understand why she wrote that (and maybe I should go further to try and understand why) because the term “easy life” is completely relative. What’s hard for an Asian girl to experience is different from what a white girl would experience. What’s hard for a black boy to experience is different from a white girl’s as well. It’s easy to take her statement out of context since I don’t know what she thinks an “easy life” is as a white girl. When reading her post, one would argue that it implies being a white girl in college is hard compared to being a black girl or Asian girl or Hispanic girl. Obviously, this situation is a close reminder of Louis C.K.’s version.
The project means well. There just needs to be a clearer vision so that it does not get confused as a group of white people complaining about being white.
If this group is going to continue with their mission to defy stereotypes by using their hashtag, then I hope all of them stop using #WhiteGirlProblems thinking it only relates to white girls and unfollow Twitter accounts like “Men’s Humor” thinking certain humor only relates to men.

It’s nice knowing that whenever I get nervous, I just go to YouTube and watch Tina Fey speeches to make me feel kickass.
