My name is Shaunice and I am a fourth year COMM student like many of you. Coming into this course, I will be honest and say I had no idea what it would consist of. Quite frankly when I read, via the syllabus, that this was a course that required us to blog I was not exactly thrilled at the idea. Last semester I had a COMM course where we were obligated to blog, and some of you were in that class as well, and I disliked it with a passion. All together I am not interested in blogging but I do not mind reading blogs. With that being said, I had to ask myself what I was getting myself into again! As I continued to read the syllabus I came to understand that this is a creative writing class. Now this caught my attention and even excited me.
I love to read and write. When it comes to academic writing, I am OK at it but I do not put my all into it especially since I have no interest in it. Creative writing is where I shine!! I always have these ideas swimming in my mind but never really get the chance to express them. So despite the fact that blogging is a major part of this course, I can put my disdain for it aside due to the fact that it involves creative writing. I can truly say I am excited to see where and how this course goes throughout the semester.
