Portfolio #4: Time Well Spent
It is hard to believe that we as a class have come this far. I feel like I have accomplished so much. I feel as if my classmates can say they have done the same. Perhaps I came into this course with my mind in a corner as to what the course would bring. I thought will I last in this class? Make it through? All past thoughts aside I feel that I have finished this course with a better knowledge of Newswriting the importance of News Writing and ow it will pertain to my future encounters. I mean to say the least I took alot of writing course this semester. An this course helped me in my communication courses as well as vice versa.
I am taking magazine writing next semester and I can not explain how excited I am. I plan to look into future career paths with writing and media relations, maybe campaign development if I look wide spread. I see magazine writing to be a big interest of mine. I think that the aaspects that I have learned in this course in regards to reporting and the such will help me further expand in my future courses. I feel like I have gained a better approach to news writing and reporting. The appraoch and perception you make on people before judgement within a article has taught me alot. I really enjoy all aspects of the course even though it frustrates me sometimes. I mean most of my frustration leads to the writing of articles. I never have had a issue gathering information it is just putting it all together to make it presentable and reader friendly that is difficult at times.
Consdidering this to be my last Portfolio for this course. I would like to say thanks to all that have given me feedback, posted comments on my blog, helped me become a better writer, and assisted in my understanding of what news writing is all about.
