Day 5 at UF Summer Journalism Institute

I've gotten very little sleep, but the last full day of this workshop was great.

I'm so sick of Gator Dining so there is no use explaining how the food was. After I finished my feature story in the writing session, I began walking across campus to find a news story, it ended up being a brief but minus some verb errors it was very well written.

I've now realized I'll need some serious equipment that is Mac related, so I'm hoping to get a Macbook soon among other things(Final Cut Pro, DSLR Camera, etc). I need to be a complete journalist, as soon as possible.

The only issue I have with my writing is not having it ordered. My AP Style is solid as well as my journalism fundamentals like the lede being 35 words or less and what have you. That is definitely something I'll need to work on to improve my aspiring career in journalism, as I believe writing is the core of journalism(for now at least).

Looking forward to getting back to Miami today, I have an editing workshop with Teenlink, MOCA Photojournalism class, and a online story due all on Friday.

On a sports note, what a win by the USA. FIFA really needs to evaluate their referees(Dempsey 1st half goal called back), but looking forward to the US playing Ghana on Saturday. Ghana is the last African nation in the World Cup, so the place will be crazy with those annoying Vuvuzelas.

My journalism summer continues after I get back at 11pm tonight, unfortunately, sleep doesn't accompany that.
