Man oh man, August and September felt like the blink of an eye. I left my internship on a great note. I got so many compliments on my past pieces and rave reviews on my HBCU/PWI debate piece. I decided that the office deserved a present from me so I bought them a delicious cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes (had to buy my fav flavor red velvet). These first two months of school have been great. My friends and I have been soaking everything up and preparing for our last months of college. I finally got my hands on two copies of Scoop, the book came out great!! If you guys want to see a copy I attached a link in my journalism tab. I have started a preliminary job search, but most of my advisors and professors tell me that in the field of journalism and media most opportunities are a here and now basis so I might have to hold off and wait until February or March to start looking. I am also planning to do internships incase the job market is slim when I begin my real job hunting. Let's hope and pray for the best
I decided to do independent study for one of the new classes in the journalism school. It has been so much fun learning more about how to be a digital story teller and I am excited to get the pieces up on our schools online new site TNJN.com. When I get published I will put the links up for my work. My first story is a picture piece about students going to the fair. Of course I had to grab a funnel cake and fried Oreos while I had the chance. Fair food is my guilty pleasure.
I put so much on my plate this semester and I am taking it all one day at a time. Somehow I have ended up on 3 executive boards for the 6 organizations I am in. The one I am most excited about is for my organization Diversity Student Leaders Society (DSLS). Mrs. Wirth has done so much for me over the past two years, I can't wait to help her make this year a successful one for the group. We had an exec board meeting at Another Broken Egg and I tried a delicious egg scramble that had avocados (my new obsession) It also had smoked turkey, roasted tomatoes and 3 different cheeses. That mixed with the potatoes and fruit was heavenly. As you all can tell I have been busy consuming more food than I have cooked. That is unfortunately due to a setback in my cookware collection but I will be back up and running things in the kitchen soon, so stay tuned (wow that rhymed).
