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.
When you look good on the outside, it motivates you to make your inside match.
This post is, in a way, a plea for you all to respect your friends and family who work in the news business.
I don’t want to be anyone’s prey anymore, and I’m learning to protect myself by saying no to situations that make me uncomfortable, or that I know I can’t afford to be involved in.
I’ve come to a realization since starting my internship three weeks ago.
I had a wonderful first year away from home, and an even better three weeks outside of the U.S.
I am finally settled in at home (my Virginia home, that is). My study abroad trip has ended and while I miss Praha terribly, I am so happy to be in my own space and closer to my family. I will write a reflective/wrap-up post about Prague soon, but for now, I want to talk about my experience in Berlin!
I finally went to the zoo in Prague last week. I needed to go because I am including it in my “36 Hours” piece. I wanted to check it out, see what kinds of activities they have for children, and also indulge my inner-child a bit.
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.
