My Comm260w teacher urges her students to read and stay updated on what’s happening around us.
My CAS475 teacher often insists that the media is corrupt/biased and to stay as far away from it as I can.
Personally, I enjoy being in the loop, sorry to my CAS professor, so every morning after my wake-up routine is completed, I open my stickers-infested Mac Book to 7 previously opened tabs consisting of:
CNN, Yahoo, Twitter, Facebook, ESPN, Sports Illustrated, and MSNBC. every day.
I want different perspectives when seeking information. (i.g. ESPN and SI ~ MSNBC and CNN)
Although I take much of the info with a grain of salt, these 7 tabs generally keep me refreshed with news across the globe.
Reading is not dreadful to me anymore, I’ve slowly realized there’s more positives than negatives. The last book I finished was ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People’ by Dale Carnegie. I’m big on personal development and Carnegie gives interesting tips and stories for just that if any of yinz are into that.
And when it comes to newspaper, I’m clearly reading the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, if the ‘yinz’ didn’t already give it away. Except when I’m here in State College I read the Collegian. Reading the paper daily is the goal though some days get missed for sure.
