How about introducing a change and talking about any different profession and activity rather than acting, dancing, and singing? How about discussing journalism. Journalism is defined as the activity of creating, gathering, presenting, and assessing information and journals are the products of these activities. These journals are then read by people and they hold their opinions over them.
Understanding the craft of a profession is a crucial point. Journalism has existed in the world since the day humans get the idea to communicate.
