When I first declared my major to English and Journalism at Cal U, I was not expecting what I was in for. Everything about AP Style contradicts anything I had previously learned in my English classes since I can remember. Any time I have an English class in college that is not a Journalism based class, my professors constantly catch me turning MLA style into AP formatting and have to correct me all of the time when I am writing my papers and essays. Capitalization, punctuation, addresses, names and titles are all different and I am constantly having to check my AP Style Guide (AKA the Journalistic Bible) for corrections and accuracy when I am writing like a journalist. Spelling out numbers and when to do so confuses me, and also ages. Titles are hard to distinguish, too, and sometimes when you're using the title of "Dr." you don't use it when you're not talking about someone who is a medical doctor. A professor at a college such as "Dr. Ross" would not be used in a title for journalistic style. It comes in handy and I have been using it for the past three years. I will most likely use it for the rest of my journalistic career, too. Overall, I really enjoy being challenged by journalism style and I like dealing with AP Style in the classes that I have and have had, even though it may be frustrating sometimes.
