Time flies, it is almost end of the semester and we are going to blog about the overview of this subject as an ending of it. This is the second time I have to blog weekly. To be honest the first time when I’m given this kind of assessment I feel quite happy because it is something different from what we usually do. But as time goes by I started to feel lazy to blog. However, I think this consider as one of a good assessment. Why so? As a student we tend to not listen to what lecturer teaching in the class, and only find out what it is about when close to exam or we need to do assignment. Blogging is different, we have to understand every of the topic so that we can talk about it. Without reading the lecture slides, the require reading and find some additional reading we wouldn’t know what it is. I think it is good for me, because I’m that kind of lazy student who will only find out what the topic about when I really need it. I further understand each topic whenever I blog about it.
Flash back to the topic I blogged before, the topic that I remember the most is pink washing. I don’t why but this topic still fresh in my mind although it’s a topic long time ago. This topic is about the business using breast cancer as a marketing tool. I personally think it is not ethic because the businesses claimed that they use this as fund raising but in fact only a very small portion of the money go to the fund raising. Usually I won’t buy anything that is a cause marketing product, I rather donate directly to any organization. The second topic that comes into my mind is citizen journalism because I’m doing this topic for another assignment. This topic is basically about everyone in the society today can act as journalism because of the social media. We update status or tweet about something instantly all the time when we witness something or something happens on us. Lastly, the topic that I could remember is e-waste. This is because I just blog about it recently so I still can remember it quite clearly. Well, we are one of them creating the mass, using all the electronic gadgets like smartphone, laptop, television and others. This topic actually let me realize that our enjoyment leads to people suffer for us. Anyway I’m not that kind of technology people that change phone or laptop often. I usually use my phone for 3 years only I will change a new model and for the laptop as long as it is still usable I’m fine with it.
Before I end this post, I want to wish all the best to my fellow classmates who graduating this semester. Hope they could achieve their dreams and nice meeting them in Inti College. Lastly, see u again next semester Miss Rohayu, happy to be your student again for my last semester of degree.
