Writer’s Block

This past block has reminded me that whatever form of writing I am working with, involving some kind of personal experience in my writing made the writing process considerably easier. I don’t know if the writing was better, but writing personal narratives always took less time to write and felt like less work to write. […]

Working-class Problems

I read a paper that made me angry today (but not really today because I wrote this a while back).  It talked about working class people versus middle people and the differences in the struggles we face. I enjoyed the paper in the beginning. It talked about the issues low-income people face trying to succeed […]

Decolonizing STEM

This class has reminded me that I have a long way to go before I decolonize my mind. Cultural psychology highlights how the field of psychology, and science as a whole, uses WEIRD (White, educated, industrialized, rich, and democratic) as the norm for majority of our research. They are the “baseline,” the “ruler” for which […]

Stem During Coronavirus and Protests

I don’t think I ever anticipated how difficult taking a stem class online would be. My last two blocks were humanities classes and not to say that they weren’t difficult, they definitely were, but for different reasons. Trying to sit down and focus on watching lectures, taking notes, learning new terms (academic ways of describing […]

Day Three!

We had another great day! Our first event of the day was a presentation by Frank Bi, a google trainer. He taught us how to maximize our efficiency with Google. I learned that if you google a word, and don’t want something to pop up, you can add “-the word,” and it won’t show up. […]

Our Final Day in DC

After our breakfast this morning at Catholic, we went to attend a class on how to best use Google. Once again, Sam had local connections with one of the women running the program at the Medill School of Journalism-a school of. Northwestern University. Our teacher for the morning was Frank Bi, who is a data […]

Day 2

After our meeting with Thom Shanker from the New York Times, our resident tour guide Sam Seymour suggested we head over to the White House so the class could see some of the sights of downtown DC. The heat and humidity started to get to us as we were admiring the Washington Monument so we […]

Day Two!

Hi Tigers! We started off our day with breakfast at Catholic University, the dorm where we are staying. We then headed over to the New York Times and met with Thom Shanker, the assistant Washington editor for the New York Times. He answered our questions, described the inner workings at in his department and advised us […]

Day One!

Hi fellow Colorado College students! We’ve arrived in D.C! We checked into our dorm at Catholic University and ate dinner at Busboys and Poets. We are currently brainstorming questions to ask the incredible men and women that we are meeting tomorrow! I’m very excited to meet Nick Wing former senior reporter for The Huffington Post. […]

Intro to Journalism Reflection

Since beginning Introduction to Journalism for Summer Session this year on May 29, one thing that has changed in my news consumption is that I realize just how many news publications exist, especially in the state of Colorado and even just in Colorado Springs. For example, I learned during our visit to The Colorado Springs […]
