Resolutions aside, however, I wanted to focus on closed doors. Doors seem closed, locked up, absolute, but then there is the window. The small sliver of opportunity that makes it all worthwhile.
I am going to be more aggressive with journalism this year - alternative sources, methods and routes. I will continue to complete applications off my long spreadsheet of deadlines for summer internships because of the window. And, in what may seem obvious, be more aware of what's going on around me.
I want to reach a point where everything in my daily process can be associated to something else, without the help of Google (well, sometimes) or other help devices. College and internships will keep me busy, but I will continue to submit lengthy story-idea emails and requests to cover big events as well.
The door might close, but the window is always open for me.
