So I failed infohell. Basically my project just blew up in my face. I thought I had it more put together, I thought my sources were stronger than they really were, I thought that I had it, and I totally didn’t.

This feeling sucks. I hate failing.

I have never failed a class like this before in my entire life. I feel like such a failure. I know it really is not that big of a deal and it is just a stupid freaking class that soooo many people fail, but still I know I’m better than this. I let myself become intimidated by the entire project. But I’m not going to let it happen again.

The only way to improve is to pick yourself back up and try it again. If you fail, who cares. There are more opportunities to try it again, just the only difference is that you change the way you approach the situation. Honestly, a human being is possible of doing anything. All you have to do is get into that mindset that anything is possible and that you can achieve it.

I doubted myself way too much. I told myself I was going to fail this class, and guess what, I did. If you tell yourself you are going to succeed, you will. THINK POSITIVE, all you have to do is think positive.

You cannot let moments (or classes) define the person you are. Every day is a new day to change. Every opportunity is a new chance to improve. The harder you push yourself and the more you want it, it will happen.

I just need to keep telling myself these things…

  1. There’s a catch to trying again for this class… I believe this was the last term that the U of O is offering “Infohell.” But that’s okay! I’ve failed two classes in my tenure of college life and it has actually shaped me on where I’ve proceeded with my career.

    Don’t worry too much about the failing and just keep trudging along. Take the Gateway classes and you’ll get so much more out of your Journalism classes. “Infohell” is an old way of journalism that’s still important but with the rise of new technology, there are many more important ways to learn. That’s why they’re changing the set-up at the U of O.

    Keep your head up and feel free to check out my current blog at http://radonski.wordpress.com. I basically wrote the same blog except it’s applied to an internship I’ve been hoping to get. Have a great summer!
