Hope resonates from within - it is finding the one story idea which lands me a national byline (has not happened yet, but it will), it is the exception to the rule or an unmet requirement, which was not really needed anyway.
October marks my birthday, Halloween and the appetizer into the holidays. Its a feeling of optimism, hope (again) which allows me to voice 20 seconds on WLRN radio or attain an 100 on a science test, both of which happened in the last week.
Last year it meant a slew of college applications; this year, more applications, but more focus. Applications which involve summer 2012 internships - a possibly segway into the national byline goal.
So as Hopetober, a clever term coined by Miami Seaquarium, continues - I will continue to work harder with each passing day.
