I find myself venturing towards opportunities which seem years away, but I want them now. I will continue to aspire to greater goals, even though it may be seen as far-fetched.
How can I do more? Making an extra effort, which is easy to say after driving more than 150 miles this past weekend (and waking up early, legit - 6 a.m.).
I scour the web daily for journalism opportunities - I have four free months between the end of the spring semester and fall. My goal is have it all booked up. I send three to four followup emails, continue to shadow journalists and send story pitches.
However, its not good enough. I need to extend my reach - and stand a little taller.
