I used to have an appetite for writing… Then, I discovered my appetite for drinking, and writing took a backseat shortly thereafter. I used to hunt for opportunities and search for success, but then I stumbled upon the many vices that university had to offer…

Four years later, sobering from my drunken trance, I realize that the face of blogging has changed since my high school days. These days, blogs are like genitalia… Everyone has one, and they’ve got it on display for the world to see…

I am taking up blogging as a permanent habit. Several professors have recommended blogging, and suggest that blogs make employees look very attractive (for those seeking to get their foot in the media and communications industry, that is)...

I have just recently switched career paths and found my niche in life. Five months ago, I switched degrees. I am no longer studying law, I am studying media and communications. I've grown up and found myself. I am content. I am excited to launch my career and to stop living the university-life.

I realize that I am infatuated with mass media and I spend more hours with media than I do with my friends. At the risk of sounding pornographic, I will openly admit that I pass out in bed with media on my mind, heart, and lips… I profess that if media-forms were donuts, I would be deathly obese. When I am not at my computer, I am on my blackberry, and when I am not on my blackberry, I am positioned in front of the television or voraciously reading magazines. It is easy to think of media as a distraction from life, but it has now become integral to all and to most.

This is my little salute to you, mass media. The spectators will always love you.

Do you have any blogs, that are not on Livejournal? Would you ever let your prospective employers view your blog (as a sort of digital resume/portfolio? How long have you been blogging? What do you think of blogs? Dont you just hate the word "blog"?

my writing took a backseat when i started dating a guy who taked and had more opinions than i did. even now, over 3 months after we broke up i'm still in the backseat, but i'm slowly going back to the way things were.
