I try to be mindful of the things I share online because the last thing I want is to be accused of being a leftist reporter, or as some of my favorite people like to call it, a disseminator of “fake news.”
Lists are my lifeline. I need them. I need to have some sort of goal to work towards, or else I feel unproductive, lost, and overwhelmed.
This post is, in a way, a plea for you all to respect your friends and family who work in the news business.
I’ve come to a realization since starting my internship three weeks ago.
I started this post a few weeks ago after submitting my last final of the spring semester. I couldn’t finish it because (a) my brain was absolutely dead, and (b) I wasn’t quite sure where to go with it.
I’m ready to reflect now, and what I really want to do is map out my biggest takeaways from this year, whether those were lessons learned in class, reporting, or personal lessons.
Maybe I’m a lightweight? Maybe I’m just not that party girl I’ve been for the past few years? I’m not sure. I just know I’m about to be 25 and my idea of a good time is staying in, catching up on the TV shows I missed during the week and popping open a six pack of Canada Dry.
