“Once you can write an alphabet, you can write a book of 100 million pages. It's just a matter of believing it as possible, and taking the cross millimetre by millimetre.”
The letter J is the 10th letter of the alphabet and is the first letter of all 3 of my names ‘Julia Jane Johnson’. Letters in the alphabet, although simple, coordinate the basis of writing, producing and relating to any audience through any platform. Beginning my blog with something as plain as the letter J gives me a starting point, from here my blog can go anywhere. Hi, I’m Julia. I have just entered my first year at The University Of Wollongong studying a double degree of Communications and Media as well as Journalism. I moved to Australia nearly 12 years ago in August, when I was 7 years old. Originally from Liverpool, England, my lifestyle has changed drastically and I have experienced polar opposite ideals from two very similar yet different countries. Now living in the good old ‘Shire’ in Sydney, my lifestyle is sheltered at most as a simple RBT near the local school attracts the attention of the whole area and is considered ‘intimidating. Liverpool, on the other hand is renowned for its pickpocketing and danger, yet it’s just every day life. However, I love both of my ‘home’ countries and their differentiations and am proud to say I’m from both. These two environments have adjusted my mindset, giving a profound amount of knowledge on the differentiation of worldview. The Attraction to ‘Communications And Media’ was the revolution of technology and the way it has aided us yet also disadvantaged us in communication. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat have allowed us to talk to anyone and everyone, from anywhere at any time.The millions of opinions spread across social media has shifted the way individuals think ,and I find this extremely interesting. More about me, I love to travel, the image shown is New York, I LOVE travelling. I hope to take my degree overseas, documenting my travels whilst immersing myself in different cultures. Travel Journalism intrigues me and I hope to embark further in this field i the future. My blog is going to have no sole purpose or surrounding topic… it could basically be about anything and everything (but mainly relating to my studies). The power to write as freely as I can is going to be so interesting and I hope you’ll join me in processing how I get through uni in one piece.

Until next time,
