I recently had an interesting conversation with a journalism colleague. She told me I have been working so hard this summer that I might need a vacation - from a vacation.
As summer winds down, its been almost 40 hour work weeks, movie premieres, concerts and the like. But, to no one's surprise, there is more.
In less than two weeks, I will be venturing into broadcast journalism, covering the Republican National Convention before returning to a full sleight of college classes.
And I always have more planned.
I have been blessed with my work at the Herald/WLRN this summer, but there are 24 hours in a day - and I will work harder and as much as possible.
