The difference between writing freely to express one’s opinion, compared to writing an opinion article for for a Journalism course definitely made me realize how different the state of mind is. Writing this now, frees my mind and eases me into writing quickly because it somehow makes me know that I won’t be judged or graded for what I have to present. On the other hand, knowing that my article is going to be published and read by many from people in school, is just so nerve-wrecking! Suddenly, having to “speak up” and sound like myself, just makes me sound so much more pretentious and superficial. I hope I can work on my tone and originality on the article I have to write. Being comfortable with the uncomfortable is my goal of the week.
