I started studying journalism because I liked writing, not because I enjoy coding.
I spent most of our computer-related classes in high school playing bubble shooter. I figured that I could google whatever I missed and still pass the class. But now that I am in college, I am supposed to be cultivating “skills” that will “help” me get a “job.”
It has been kind of tough for me to pick up. Writing isn’t too bad because I write in the language I speak– English. But now, with this coding nonsense, I feel like I’m typing long, complicated gibberish to communicate simple ideas.
I really need to start buckling down if I want to actually learn this skill and be successful in the future.
