Happy Memorial Day & more

Happy Memorial Day.

The reason that we did not have a "word of the week" last week is due to all the big deal topics going on, and I couldn't focus on just one. The Facebook privacy issue is still going on, then we have BP, Lost, American Idol, etc.

There was just so much to choose from.

Yesterday, I lost my cool a bit and did a nice blog entry for Tila Tequila.
That's the closest to a rant (okay, it was a rant, but a rant with supported links to justify my argument).

Read it, and you'll see why.
Tila Tequila called herself a journalist.
I went off on Perez Hilton when he called himself a columnist,
but for Tila Tequila to call herself a journalist was the last straw for me.

My personal life has gotten stressful.
My 20th birthday is on June 7 :)
Today was "Quit Facebook Day," and I obviously did not jump on that bandwagon.
It wasn't much of a bandwagon.

I have been getting more and more into twitter
I'm kind of obsessed, because I can update all the time.

I got a lot of great feedback on my post about objectivity. So thank you so much.
This website is being redesigned by my good friend John Draper.
It is going to look fabulous. I made some graphics and he's doing the coding.

Anyway, I'll hopefully do some more future of journalism blogging within the next couple days. :)
