The End of MCOM 72
Sad, but true, my favorite class of this semester is over and I have learned so much through out these last five months. Blogging really opened up my eyes to the real journalism world and how to think, write, and research like a journalist; which is why I enjoyed this class and the assignments we did so much. I also discovered a new favorite book of mine The Kite Runner, if it wasn't for this class I probably would have never taken a second look at it, but I read it and loved it.
When I looked back on my first blog we had to write about what type of media consumer we are and I said magazine, however, now I have discovered I am a media consumer of many more. From learning about all the different forms of media in our society and how it affects us, I realized I consume a lot more media then I thought; I am a media consumer of magazine, television and radio. These three types of media take up most of my time throughout my day, I am a subscriber to seventeen, teen people, and cosmopolitan, I watch reality TV almost everyday, and I love the radio. Basically, media is a huge part of my life, which is why mu major is broadcast journalism and advertising. I just love the media and the huge effect it can have on people and society in general. Thanks to this class and Lilly Buchwitz I have learned so much about myself and the media world; which I was so clueless to before. Thanks to the class i discovered the amazing world of blogging, which I intend to keep writing.
Overall, this class has helped me in so many ways and got me more excited to take more mass communication and journalism classes, to have as much fun as I did writing and learning this semester in MCOM 72.
