Of course I still have muuuch to learn(I'm not a great writer
), but thats why I'm going to college and Missoula has a great journalism school with some of the most advanced technology and up to date courses. I spoke with one of the professors about what he covers and he mentioned podcasts and blogging. This made my heart soar to say the least. For once in my life I felt compelled and excited to learn rather than pissed and bored like I was in high school. Of course I'm scared, but overcoming obstacles and difficult challenges is very rewarding (games ha
) and I look forward to doing my best this fall.
On the subject of college, I'm also very excited to become part of the gaming community there. For once I'll know other people, within a close proximity, that play games. Growing up in a town of 3,000, I was lucky to get one or two friends who had played games while in college, for some, its a lifestyle. I might actually have REAL FRIENDS
on my live friend list. I am somewhat hesitant as well though...I worry about not having enough time to play. I always hear horror stories about time being an issue and its scares me, because I never want to give up gaming, but if I'm forced to due to academics I will. I'm pretty sure I'll be fine, but college is a scary, new thing to me...I have no idea what to expect.
As a closing I wanted to ask input from anyone who is involved in journalism about what to expect, tips, tricks, or anything about the dream and also to ask to anyone who's been through college as a gamer...is it hard? Do you have the time? Does the time increase? Does the passion increase? Anything on the subject would be nice...maybe even some crazy ass stories from the college gaming period. You college kids always do seem to have a crazy ass time! *UNCOMFORTABLY LOUD LAUGHTER/WEIRD ARM TOUCH THAT GIVES YOU CHILLS*
