Things That Journalism Majors Are Tired Of Hearing

If I hear "You're never going to get a job" one more time...

Things That Journalism Majors Are Tired Of Hearing
Media Shift

Everyone is most likely going to always have something to say about Liberal Arts majors, but there are a couple of things in particular that journalism majors hear about 10 times a week... and it's getting really old.

1. Newspapers Are So Dead.. How Are You Ever Going To Find A Job?

Luckily, journalism is a hell of a lot more than just newspapers. You know the lady on Fox News you like to watch every morning? Yeah, probably a journalism major.

2. Hey, Can You Read Over This Paper For Me?

Not unless you have a lot of paragraph breaks.

3. You're Major Is So Easy.

I'm sorry, did you decide that before or after you wanted me to read over your paper because you're 20 years old and still can't figure out MLA format to save your life?

4. You Need A Source For An Interview? Use Me!

No. Just no.

5. It Must Be Nice To Have Like No Finals.

No we just have finals, on top of papers, on top of three stories that we have to write.. All due at midnight. But you're right, it must be nice.

6. You Must Be Really Good At Arguing.

Yes actually I am. Would you like to see a first-hand demonstration?

7. It's A Risky Field.

Honestly that's the best part. We're willing to risk everything just for the slightest chance the we just might get to do what we love for the rest of our lives.

8. You Must Be Not In It For The Money.

Trust me, we may not be mathematics majors but we managed to figure that one out.

9. Your Journalism Class Must Be An Easy A.

Oh totally.. Except for the fact that your journalism professor will mark you down 30 points just because they think "your lead sounds weird" or you wrote 3 instead of three.

10. Journalism Is A Useless Degree.

Yeah and so is your opinion but you still keep talking.

We may not have the easiest time getting our dream job or make the most money, but I can guarantee you one thing. You will never meet someone in the J-School who isn't absolutely in love with what they're doing.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
