Students with mental health issues are combatting both a pandemic and their classes at the same time

I chose this topic because I knew I could get a lot of information on this topic as well as a large variety of responses. In addition, I believe I can briefly talk about another topic idea I had (students putting off classes/graduation) which will make the article more interesting to read and add even more relevancy.

Just as with fiction books and blockbuster films, we shouldn’t trust what we see on social media as being the full story

Behind every book you read there’s been an entire production team, often including authors or ghostwriters, editors, agents, and publishing companies. Same goes for blockbuster films – I guarantee if it’s big budget, there’s an entire team dedicated to each minuscule portion of that film’s development and production. And whilst we’ve been fooled into thinking social media harnesses each individual voice, algorithms working behind the scenes are what determines the content we see. Therefore, it shapes how we feel about social media, as opposed to allowing us to connect directly with the hundreds of people we ‘follow’ or are ‘friends’ with, and making our own minds up about them. That masterful direction means we are being exposed to an edited version of people, even people we see every day in person. For all its awesomeness, social media cannot replace true human connection.

how the fuck do I do this? (write a book)

It’s a Tuesday morning, and I’m late for work. I was supposed to work at 10am, now it’s 10:33 am. I got lost in the Palanca Awards application page, followed the rabbit hole to see a bunch of people getting their books published, their essays awarded, and all other things that “aspiring” writers want and “legit” writers have — a published work. Better, a published “body of work.”
