Well folks, we have made it! We have crossed the midway point of 2020 and have entered the summer season. This decade did not start off how many of us wanted it to but we should continue going on the paths we have started and make do with what we have. A lot of distressful news has been circulating around all of us and of course it can bring us all down from time to time; trust me, I sometimes get too caught in the negativity but I keep my spirit and hope up so I can continue going forward in life. Writing and learning are a couple of ways I keep myself busy if I get too caught in negativity.
I have mentioned that I want to be a Journalist or have a career like this when I get out of university; this is something that I enjoy a lot and it connects me to the major I am studying, Communication. Communication truly is something deep within every culture whether we talk to our relatives through the phone or if someone asks for directions and we gesture where they need to go. Ever since humanity started, we have created different forms of communication over time; I say this because History is becoming a huge topic these days.
Now there are some people who really don’t like History class and all that which is understandable since a lot of events did happen before our time. I personally like learning a bit of history as there are somethings that interest me about older civilizations. Like with the Incas using a device called a Quipu to keep mostly numerical information but hopefully we can make out other uses that they used the Quipu for. I encourage you all to do some research of past civilizations or of your home country as it appears that this is something many people in the US are doing due to everything that has happened.
If you happen to be a History lover, you can come to USG to get your B.A in History from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). There are main focuses on Policy History, Public History, and International Historical Perspectives. If this interests you, here is a link to their website to learn more information.
Hopefully you all enjoy the summer and if you have questions, concerns, or suggestions let me know and I will take them into thought! I will see you all in the next blog!
