Just as the address and title say, my blog is going to be a potpourri of content. I tend to hoard links that I find all over the internet, so prepare for at least a weekly post discussing those. I flit between interests like a butterfly; one day I might talk about a new issue of a comic by Marvel, the next, a thirty year old science fiction TV show , and the next, an obscure French film that I watched in one of my classes. In one entry, I might talk about how much I love a certain actor and some of their current projects. In the next, I’ll bring up a serious political issue and talk about my opinions on the matter. I don’t like limiting myself to one thing. There is so much out there in the world, and I want to experience it all!
And what about me? At the present, I am a senior in my last semester in college. I am getting my Bachelors in Arts with a major in the Performing Arts, a concentration in Music, and a minor in Creative Writing. (That’s certainly a mouthful, isn’t it!) My focus may have been on music, but my passions lie in all sorts of media, especially social media and the effect it has on the world around us. For example, the use of Twitter and Tumblr in the recent Egyptian and ongoing Libya revolutions have been marvelous. They allow us to see exactly what is going on on the other side of the world in real time, from all eyes, from all perspectives, and from all people. The growth of social media and the internet has given everyone a voice, not just someone who’s been trained in journalism or someone with enough money to get their message across.
I am lucky, therefore, that I was able to take classes with many different topics throughout my years at the small liberal arts school which I currently attend. My favorites were the ones which focused on popular culture and media, two subjects which are becoming very important in this century. I don’t think anyone really understands just how important, not even me, but I’m going to throw myself in head first and see what happens.
I’m silly, sweet and I love to have fun with my friends, but I’m also hard working, serious, and I care about people. I love to hear all kinds of opinions, so please feel free to comment!
