In a few days, I'll have literally nothing on my to-do list. Good, right? Not at all - I always want to have something to strive toward, apply for or write about.
While I treasure the valuable free-time, I'll use it to my advantage. That means more reading, writing and finding journalism opportunities beyond the summer months. Whenever I miss an opportunity, its frustrating - why didn't I know about it? I should have.
This type of tenacity is just part of my passion. I'll apply, re-apply and follow up - everything and anything is possible.
In a few weeks, I'm off to the Crescent City (New Orleans) for two weeks of intense journalism on a grand stage. I need to be beyond ready and hold myself to a higher standard.
I need to continue climbing, one step closer to the next step and the next step and the next step...
Journalism is like climbing a ladder - each step puts me at a greater height; while the ladder grows.
