I did a lot of research online, talked to some people, came to an amazing orientation here, and that pretty much sealed the deal for me. There will always be websites; there will always be TV. There will always be computer for people who need to know the stories, and know what's going on. The journalism program here pretty much started the same time the college did. In its beginning it was focused almost entirely on print. And stayed that way up until probably about five years ago. And we decided that we would like to add the broadcast element to that and now we're training students so that they can go into newspapers, print or online . They can go into broadcast, they can go into television. They can go into radio. They can work for online publications. We teach them how to write news , we teach them to understand news, and what journalism is. They're looking around and saying, "what's that?" "Why is that... I didn't see that yesterday. I've got to find out about that." I went to university prior to coming to Durham. And I had always done well in all of my papers and everything like that. But I didn't know if I could actually do this type of writing. In my first few weeks I started getting projects back and I was doing really well, and I was really proud of myself. And I was like "OK, maybe this is the program for me." I think the people that come into the program with a wide range of interests, curiosity, as well as an interest in writing. Those are the people that are going to do well. Reporting is my favourite class, because you get to interview people and learn so much and it fulfills your personal curiosity and also allows you to share all this brand new information with others. It's so hands-on. You get out there and you have to come up with your own story ideas. And then you have to go research them and you have to find people to talk to. And it's just to prepare you for the real world. People are becoming more obsessed with the news and more obsessed with things that are going on today. So I think it will grow even more. I don't think there's any risk of not having a job in the future. My definition of success would be doing something you love and excelling at it. So I think that I definitely got the skills now to complete that goal . I know I'm in the right place.

Be motivated: Peace of mind
Once Buddha was walking from one town to another town with a few of his followers. This was in the initial days. While they were travelling, they happened to pass a lake. They stopped there and Buddha told one of his disciples, "I am thirsty. Do get me some water from that lake there."
The disciple walked up to the lake. When he reached it, he noticed that some people were washing clothes in the water and, right at that moment, a bullock cart started crossing through the lake. As a result, the water became very muddy, very turbid. The disciple thought, "How can I give this muddy water to Buddha to drink!" So he came back and told Buddha, "The water in there is very muddy. I don’t think it is fit to drink."
After about half an hour, again Buddha asked the same disciple to go back to the lake and get him some water to drink. The disciple obediently went back to the lake. This time he found that the lake had absolutely clear water in it. The mud had settled down and the water above it looked fit to be had. So he collected some water in a pot and brought it to Buddha.
Buddha looked at the water, and then he looked up at the disciple and said, "See what you did to make the water clean. You let it be ... and the mud settled down on its own – and you got clear water... Your mind is also like that. When it is disturbed, just let it be. Give it a little time. It will settle down on its own. You don’t have to put in any effort to calm it down. It will happen. It is effortless."
What did Buddha emphasize here? He said, "It is effortless." Having "peace of mind" is not a strenuous job; it is an effortless process. When there is peace inside you, that peace permeates to the outside. It spreads around you and in the environment, such that people around start feeling that peace and grace.
