Me and the one and only Miss Lonelyhearts (photo: Matt Preprost)
I am having such a great time at the Free Press! I have met some truly awesome people there, and the experience has been so incredibly valuable to what I want to do with my life. (I worked harder than I have ever worked on my yesterday's story, and I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that it was the cover feature this morning...It was just an incredible feeling all around!)
During my first couple of days at the Free Press, I was nervous as hell! -- My six inch stories ("blurbs") took me upwards of four hours to complete, and the final product was always mediocre at best! -- Though I still have a long way to go in my abilities, I have to admit that a week in the newsroom has been some of the greatest education I could ever ask for! (Bring on the Streeters next semester!)
I am living my dream, and even if it's just for another week or so, I am so thankful for the opportunity!
