Mass Media Monday: SOTU.

wow. it has been forever since i’ve blogged, and life has been so super hectic (pathetic excuse, but true!) that I even forgot to post my “really special”, nostalgic one year anniversary post on the true date (so, am linking it here).

can hardly believe that my final semester as a mass media major is here, and after a 3 & 1/2 week anatomy and physiology course over winter break, I am looking forward to diving back into the equally complex (but, where my mind is comfortable and fascinated) world of media and its effects worldwide.

so, in honor of the new semester–two of my classes are politically framed-– I thought I would share a video found on Refinery29, addressing the State of the Union, which aired on January 20th 2015. The R29 video spits out a number of statistics based on What Millennial Women Really Care About. President Obama did address some of the economic downfalls and inequalities for ALL Americans; painting a picture of what many of us would love to see, but realistically only a few policies will go through. I encourage everyone to watch the SOTU (firstly), as it was the first of its kind in many ways (in a media sense), and find a few insights/perspectives that matter, spark interest or inspire YOU, perhaps starting here:

“…and yet we are an optimistic generation”

the future is ours, happy Monday!

xx, Pp!
