So, it’s the first day of school! Except it’s Junior year this time – and for once, I’m completely nervous. This semester I have to work at the Columbia Missourian for one of my journalism classes.
I went to orientation yesterday – the whole four hours of it – and although it cleared up a lot of confusing rumors about the class, I’m still worried about it. Everyone says it’s the semester where you have no life, the one where you constantly run around like a mad-man interviewing, stressing, writing and more stressing. Sounds fun, right?
But that’s not what scares me. I’ve had internships, deadlines actually make me work harder and I LOVE talking to people. So what’s the problem? Well, it’s simple. I don’t want to fail. I don’t want to be that one person who trudges into the editor’s office, shifts her feet and looks up only to see the high arched eyebrows and disappointed eyes looking back at her.
They say that you’ll probably be working 20+ hours a week for this class. I think the hardest thing for me will be time management and fitting in 20+ hours, 15 credits of classes, oh and that life I was supposed to having? Guess that’s part of the learning experience.
Well, here we go again.
