Back then, if I would be writing about such thing under the sun, I may say it would be more about scripts and concepts for our TV and Radio (production/non-production) class and 'tag lines' for my Advertising subjects as well.
Until irony hits me and came to a time that I suddenly became part of the field that I am not interested about--writing; I never thought of myself embracing this line of work as my first job after college.
Recalling our News and Feature Writing subject (a.k.a 'Course'), I may say, "I am not taking things about it seriously." Particularly, whenever we are tasked to look for a specific news genre by our Professor.

On our daily existence, whoever/whatever/whichever comes our way, still: let us all move forward towards meeting new people, strive hard to gain new knowledge, and be well prepared for a new exciting experience.
People might say, 'not all things that we encounter in our lives will be useful.' But I'm pretty sure, at one point in our lives, it will be, someday.
