    Fall Term 2009
    Right now I am in the library at UNF on day two of the new semester. This is my second semester attending UNF, and I hope it will be better than my first. I decided to start this professional blog to track my progress in college as a junior and beyond. I want to remind myself of how I once was and one day hope to be when I get into my career. By changing my major from Business to Communications I hope to express my creative side through the field of Advertising. I already took Principles of Advertising two semesters ago and hope to really “dive in” the core of the field. I am taking MMC3105 (Advanced Writing for the Media) this semester and I find myself scared-yet excited. After the first class I know it is going to be a challenge, but a challenge is what I was looking for to get me where I want to be.

    On Monday's class we had a lecture on leads in newspapers. Prior to taking this class my mind could come up with a few leads on the spot with ease. Now, actually sitting in the classroom, having to come up with an interesting lead for a class assignment to discuss turned out to be quite different. It was a strange feeling to have knowing my work would be critiqued. Even now, I want to just write simple (as the professor had advised us to do), but I know I am over-thinking the process of what made writing fun for me. I fear my grammar skills are not where they should be, so I pray I can find confidence in this class by relearning what I need to know. After years of writing in MLA format, now, all four of my classes this semester require APA format. I guess it is time to open the Bedford Handbook I had bought years ago and review for what is in store for me. I hope I can keep this hopeful attitude instead of feeling frustrated as I have heard previous students obtain. Only time will tell.
