Make or Break

25 Sep

This is my make or break entry. Mainly because of two reasons: 1) either I make it and finish this on time or not.. (looks at the clock) and 2) if I will still continue keeping this blog or not.

Hmm I suggest we discuss the second reason. This is my first ever blog because I do not count Multiply Blog feature as a serious blog platform. This is also my first set of serious ( I believe) blog entries. Most of my entries in Multiply are products of bandwagon and my young mind. I actually said to myself when I created this account that I will not continue this after the semester ends. But I am definitely open for the possibility of maintaining it. WordPress is the only blog site  I am comfortable in using and if ever there are note-worthy (translates to blog-worthy) thoughts in my head, I can easily type them away. Also, I believe that I cannot maintain any sort of diary. My diary usually lasts from six months to a year so it would be nice if I can maintain an online diary (oh yes, privacy settings will be very much customized for my dangerous posts :P). Blogging actually helps me express myself in a more organized manner (which I assume I have to credit to my blogging once a week supposedly :P). Writing blog entries also informed me of some topics I would not learn just by curiosity. It opened me the world of new social media which is very much helpful to learn about because I will be soon joining an organization which, according to statistics, might be taking social media seriously thus be needing my knowledge on it. Also, statistics shows that majority of a population is now wired and connected to the Internet. Might as well join the club and contribute to online trash. Kidding! 😛  Seriously, with the mature mind I have now (translates to right at this moment which may change minutes after :P), I’m thinking of developing my online imprint, my mark in the WWW. Awww.

Make it or break it, I can proudly say that blogging provided me with learning  that I may not learn in the four walls of our classroom. This has affected my lifestyle and I would like to believe that it influenced me in a good way. Though I might be cursing everytime I remember my backlogs (which are now zero :D), I admit that I feel great after hitting that publish button (specifically for 16 times as of the moment). It depends on my sleep tonight or on my mood or on my parent’s decision to buy me a laptop (translates to a lot of factors) if I will be hitting that Publish button again. Haha! 😀

See you when I see you! 😀

    oh, yes, I agree with you patti. 🙂 this blog requirement has taught me many things as well– things that we wouldn’t have learned if we’re boxed in the four walls of the classroom. Indeed, it has also opened my world to a whole new niche in the cyberspace that i think i’m pretty much getting used to. So, i’m also thinking of keeping my blog and try to update it from time to time, writing about SERIOUS matters we would soon encounter in the workplace. i’m going to try to leave a decent and more serious online imprint, too! 😀

    Definitely. The internet also broke the wall that limits our perspective about the world. So aside from the knowledge that we are gaining on how to benefit from it, it also helps us become open-minded people which is a plus plus when we enter the corporate world.

    This OC 152 requirement made our life miserable for a sem. 😀 But no matter how toxic maintaining this communication blog has been for us, we cannot deny the fact that it taught us so many things:
    1. We had more appreciation of the power of internet.
    2. Through habitual writing, our minds were made more active and creative.
    3. We realized the importance of NSM not just for us today as students, but more for us tomorrow when we get into the real battlefield.
    4. It has given us a greater sense of responsibility to cope with the requirements given to us. This is just a communication blog, it’s not more than the tasks that will be given to us in our future companies.
    5. We have to love or at least like what we are told to do so that at the end of the day, we could feel satisfied with its results no matter how rigorous the process was.

    And the list goes on…

    Initially, I dreaded the idea of keeping a blog for a school requirement. I’m too lazy to keep a personal blog where I can just write anything and and everything about myself, better yet make a comm blog talking about stuff that bores me. Or so I thought. After a few entries that I painfully forced myself to write, composing a blog became relatively easier as we went on. Maybe because I was able to check out other bloggers and saw how they write: simple, concise, witty and entertaining. I figured it doesn’t need to be highly technical for me to look all wise and stuff but what’s more important is that readers will be swayed to read through my blog and comment without breaking a sweat. 🙂
