Man, first I want to apologize to myself for not keeping up with this like I planned. I didn’t anticipate how busy this semester would be for me.
I am keeping up with reading, more for school than for myself, but I haven’t found the time to sit down and write about the readings the past week or so.
I’m currently enrolled in an 18 credit semester, which is basically as many credits as they’ll let you take in one semester. I needed to do this so that I could graduate on time this May. Most of my classes are fine and I can handle their course load, however I’m also enrolled in my capstone journalism class this semester. It’s been a lot to handle and I’ve been so busy and behind on so many things.
I’m writing this mostly for myself, to remind myself that this is something that I need to take the time to do. I promise that within the next week I will be up to date on everything and have new posts about what I’ve been reading.
This is my resolution, so I need to take the time and get it done.
In other news, the first story that I wrote for my capstone, Philadelphia Neighborhoods, was actually on the front page of their website the other day. That was a pretty cool moment for me.
My story was the one about Casinos. It’s a very difficult beat to cover, but also very rewarding when something gets accomplished.
