I’m On The TV!

8 Oct

…not really. But here’s part one of the show we filmed on Thursday that myself and my j-school co-broadcasters poured our blood sweat and tears into. Not literally, we’re not that masochistic.

Love it nonetheless.

Check Out thedailyplanet.com!

30 Sep

As you may know from reading ROMISAYS, I am a whore to the publications I work for. This time is no exception.

I am currently a managing editor for thedailyplanet.com, Humber College’s online newspaper. We re-launched for the year this week and we’re off to a good start! Check out what all of the hardworking students are writing about.

And if you want to jump to what I wrote, you can find it here.

Newspaper Time!

11 Mar

As it is every Thursday – Time to check out what I wrote in the Humber Paper!

This week I’m tackling the pressing issue of space on campus. By pressing I mean, apparently there’s enough classroom space to support the increase in students applying to colleges. I know, fascinating. Read it anyways?

Anyways, we’ll see if actions support words in September. In the meanwhile, I suggest the school invests in some more study / computer space for those stuck lining up for computer access.

To compensate for my lack of excitingness, here is a Failblog video.

Stuff Romi Likes

9 Mar

Other sites are dedicated to the likes of a certain group of people. Why can’t that group consist of one person?

Perhaps by me liking things, you will like them too. And then we can become one big group of happy people who like stuff that Romi likes. Once we establish this group, we can create a website called “Stuff Romi and Other People With The Same Interests Like”. What do you say?

Here I go!

1. Stuff Journalists Like – Yes, I’m a rookie journalist but already, I’m coming to understand what makes people of our profession squeal with joy. Things like bylines, free food, and crazy people are among the contributions.

(if you like this, you will most definitely also like Overheard In The Newsroom)

2. Canvas Shoes – Continue reading

TTC Diaries: Metropass

2 Mar

Dear Diary,

I hate to play the customer service card but I have to in this case.

If there is a demand for Metropasses, then supply it. Commuters shell out $121 every month so that they can have the convenience of traveling around the city, to and from work, school, and wherever else they need to go. These people are willing to pay the TTC for this service, and the TTC should, in theory, provide the means to do so.

Problem is, you can’t get the Metropass ANYWHERE. A couple days into the month and most places are sold out of the card, including the bookstore on the Humber campus, a place where there should be a generous stock of passes. Continue reading

Double Whammy

25 Feb

After a long week of severe sleep deprivation, all my hard work has paid off. I have not one but TWO articles in the Humber Paper!

While I jump for joy (and by that I mean work on articles for the next paper) you can check out what I wrote.

The first is on the low level of grammatical skill post-secondary schoolers have. OMG!

The second is on poverty in post-secondary schools, featuring notes from a lecture given by Dr. Grace-Edward Galabuzi.

Feel free to comment on the Et Cetera site.

TTC Diaries: Manners

24 Feb

Dear Diary,

I make sure to thank my bus driver every single time I get off of the bus. The man / woman just drove me an hour to get to where I want to go. You wouldn’t thank your friend for giving you a lift somewhere?

Amidst the silly scandals, it’s important to give credit where credit is due. I’m sure a lot of TTC folk that work their butts off to serve you are feeling a little down from all this bad press.

A quick thank you can go a long way. Sounds cheesy, and I apologize for talking to you like a child, but the majority of people riding the bus with me every morning are incapable of blurting out a quick “thank you” to the person who got them to Humber College 3 times faster than it would have taken them on the Finch bus.

A thank you.

Love,

R
