So there are two weeks left of hell… and then I am officially done my undergrad (THANK GOD). I have learned a lot in my time here; how to be away from home, how to live on my own, how to be responsible for myself, how to be successful and all that good stuff.
This semester was by no means easy but I guess I quickly want to say that digital culture (class) has added to my university career as a whole. It is not often that profs force us to read actual books that will be relevant to us in the future, I have a ton of text books from previous years that are currently supporting my bed so it doesn’t squeak anymore, and thats about all I can see them being used for in the future. But I think a book like Shirky’s and Kelly’s for that matter project a future that takes us to new heights. I have already recommended that my friend who is in communications read both books because they are not only informative but they make you think past where and what we have today.
My older sister just moved to Spain to do her Masters in architecture and she can’t use a phone over there, so we have to rely on things like skype, facebook and she has a blog as well. And all of those things work great, I especially love skype, but I’m also super excited to see what comes in the next 5-10 years for virtual communication. Its nice that this class has even “taught” me to think ahead with some renewed excitement.
