An insane person came up with the idea that 18-year-olds should decide what they want to do with the rest of their lives. It baffles me that at such a young age we are expected to figure out what we want to major in and where we will go to school to learn that major. … Continue reading I’m Outta Here…But to Where?
Journalists do interviews. Introverts don’t like to approach strangers, let alone ask questions that might make those strangers uncomfortable. But I’m an introverted journalism major.
