93rd Ask Josh – Comms 325

In Uncategorized on January 27, 2009 at 1:11 am

Dear Josh,
Why does 325 feel like it’s kicking my butt? I want to cry half the time and the other time I’m trying to figure out how anyone survived this class
– your trusty colleague,


Dear Natalie,

Comms 325 is kicking your butt because you don’t know the first thing about broadcast journalism.  And you know what? That’s cool, baby. Just brush your shoulders off and walk it out.

Just know that no matter how bad you do, you’ll never be as bad as this guy:

Know this: Many have gone before. Many will come after. Lesser women have gotten through it.  And you are in arguably the best broadcast journalism program in the world.  It should hurt. It should feel like a class where only the best future journalists of the world make it through. 

The value of anything is what you pay for it. Your money aside, your parents’ money aside, the Church’s money aside, the widows’ mites aside, all the blood, toil, tears, and sweat in the name of your education will be the prices you pay to make it… well… priceless.

Keep at it. If this is the worst thing to ever happen to you, consider yourself the luckiest person in the world.

Happy Chinese New Year.
