Today is the birthday of the greatest woman in my life.
You have provided me with everything I ever wanted. You’ve stayed strong through the hardest times. Even though this year has been tough, you kept your head up high and focused on getting better for Dalia & I.
You are the greatest woman in the world & I hope to be half as amazing as you. My inspiration.
Love you mummy xx
Yesterday I got my results for my degree.
You are reading the blog of a student who has been awarded a Bachlour of Arts Honours degree in Journalism – Second Class Upper division!!! I got a 2.1!
Although it isn’t the 1st I had hoped for, considering what I have been through this year with mum being hospitalised & loosing my job, I am so happy to atleast have got a 2.1! All the stress paid off!!
So now I have to step into reality & try to find a job until I can go back to Korea! It’s scary!
Having been in education for 20 years, that’s it!! I will miss education that’s for sure! Who knows? I might do a masters in Korea! Hahaha
The other day in my News Reporting lecture, I wrote an artical in a ‘new journalism’ style. The style is actually about 50 years old but it’s an article which is writen in a novel style.
I read mine out in the lecture & my lecturer loved it!
That wasn’t the only good thing. Since I read a lot of books, the other day I was wondering why I hadn’t picked to study creative writing. But with this style of ‘new journalism’ I can write the way I like while reporting news! =D
Yay for positivity!!
I don’t know why people think it’s okay to doubt your dreams.
I want to live in LA after university. I want to be a presenter or an investigative journalist, I want to fall in love like how it happens in movies & fairytales.
If you asked me what I want to do after university, listen to me. I didn’t ask you to tell me how impossible my dreams are so please, keep your negative thoughts to yourself.
I know it’s hard to make it in LA, but I’d rather struggle to get the job I love, than be in a job I don’t have the most passion for.
I know I’m a mummys’ girl & I find it hard to think about living without her, but she encourages me & it gives me tge strength to plan out & act on my dreams because I want her to be happy & proud of me.
If anyone tells you that you won’t make it, or ‘that is a very competitive industry’, don’t listen to them. When you doubt yourself & your dreams, that is when you will fail. Always think positive, ignore negativity & believe in yourself. =]
