Brought to Life

In high school, I was terrible at time management. I would say yes to every opportunity (sound familiar?), but some kind of work would be less than quality in the process.

Now my time management is almost too good. Every day it is one assignment after another; whether its 20 minutes of studying for a test two weeks away or an internship application that is not due for another month.

And the latter may work in my favor for a winter internship, which I have coveted since I knew journalism would be my career path. It usually lasts and month and only a few outlets have them, but I may land one as early as next week.

I am busier than ever, but I seem to have more time for what is important (family, friends, etc) because I make it all count. And yeah, I am that guy in the suit to the right if you have not guessed already.

It is an enlightening experience - "a heart of numbness, gets brought to
life - I'll take you there."

Let's Go

And fall begins.

A new year of college, more journalism and a whirlwind of opportunities and commitments that need a strict attention to detail to manage.

The end of this year will set the tone for 2013 and even more changes. Up to this point, journalism has been fairly easy, but a challenge will make me a better journalist in the long run. This means harder classes and lengthy assignments.

Until then, I will spend my fall balancing work and school, growing as a journalist while picking up on areas of improvement.

"I'm talking here and now - let's go!"
