...in my life, I mean.

It's sad to see someone getting her sole entertainment from a textbook...

When I bridged from high school to college, I expected many differences in receiving my education, including the times I went to class and more career-training focus I would have in my education. What I did not expect was for my textbooks to ROCK HARD. And when I mean textbook, I really mean textbook. Not some American literature classic for English 152 or something. This is an actual textbook. It's called Mass Communication: Living in a Media World by Ralph E. Hanson. This is book is for my Journalism 101 class. I know there are some (many...well I'll be honest here: vast majority) of my classmates who would criticize the class, but the book for it is amazing.

So far in this book I have learned the Beatles did admit their songs referenced drugs, viewers of The Daily Show are better education in politics and overall than O'Reilly Factor viewers, Joseph Pulitzer did more than start the Spanish-American war, and probably the best information I have received yet: Lost is available for free on the internet!!!!! Hanson agrees, Lost is the best TV show on right now (or at least at the time of the publishing of the 2nd edition of his book) and you can see every episode ever aired here. This is great for me because I'm behind a season, and with this website I won't be anymore! I can watch every episode of season 4 and be able to watch the new episodes of season 5 when they come out "early 2009." This is great, screw studying!!


Also, He calls me "Rerun." *swoons*

I've always thought the Stewart/Colbert '08 bumper stickers should read Colbert/Stewart '08. I refuse to buy one with Jon in the lead!
