Centennial Post

I’ve had this blog for over a year. September of 2009. After the fall semester, I admit that I never got back into a regular posting schedule. But this semester that is all going to change. I am taking a Journalism class to learn how the journalists write. I figure the best possible outcome is that I will learn so valuable skills that will make me more marketable as a writer.

So look for the tag JRNL 11 H for my journalism class posts. I’ll be writing news stories as well.

Hello Hofstra! again…

Just one more semester. Repeat whenever there’s a speed bump, hardship, et cetera.

117 days until May 22nd. That’s when I graduate.

Things are as up in the air as ever but for once, I don’t mind as much. I’ve come to terms with where I’m going and what I’m looking for. I guess it helps that I…

..got an editorial internship with Universal Record Database. There are tons of videos on the site of records (made up by the users) and I’m helping by turning that into a book. At first it sounds corny, but their principles are pretty cool. Anyone can be a record breaker. All you need to know is what you’re good at and turn that talent into a record.

So right now I’m about knee-deep in email correspondence. My job is to email these record breakers to make sure there’s a response and that it’s okay to ask questions. But there will be other tasks added soon because this book project is running on a tight deadline of 1/31!

Where I’ve been

and where I’m going.

I spent New Years Weekend at Sunday River again. Went skiing with my Aunt, brother, cousin, and a friend of my cousin who lives in Portland. I hadn’t skied in two years, but it was like riding a bike. I had so much fun that I resolve to buy myself the skis and boots as soon as I know where I’m living. If there’s a job for me in Miami, then that might be a problem 🙂

Also was in Chicago for a week visiting maternal grandparents. I don’t see them nearly enough.

I start classes on the 26th. Heading down to Hofstra the 24th. I am excited to have an internship at URDB.org I’m helping put a book together. 🙂

One more semester left. Where HAS the time gone?
