Oh day three has been lovely. I had one little tiny break for dinner all day, but that’s okay I have still found a little time to Facebook and of course, blog! I was feeling good, then the immensity of my homework and project really hit me. I don’t want to admit that I felt very strung out for about an hour. To the rescue was my ever faithful, amazing friend and editor-in-crime Megan O’Connell. She sat down with me and helped me put my ideas onto paper. It really helped me focus and feel more creative about what I am trying to do with this project.
Luckily, I have been over productive the last couple of days and had my articles written for the Exponent on time, so now I have to get a little studying done for my mid terms. Every once in a while I find myself switching back to my project pages to quick add something or write down an idea for the design or articles. Now if I can just get one thing at a time completed, I feel that I will be able to manage the rest of the week.
“Journalism is the ability to meet the challenge of filling space.” — Rebecca West
I can definitely relate to this quote because up until a few hours ago, I didn’t feel like I would be able to fill any number of pages with content for my project.
I have a lot more to do, but the goal is to stay positive and just keep going. I mean this is what my life is going to consist of, why not get the practice I need now?
Thanks for continuing to read the Five Day Dash blog, it means a lot!
p.s. This video cheered me up because it is so strange but awesome! Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlAgHt92lqE&feature=autoplay&list=PLEC1719F0DB127A40&lf=plpp_video&playnext=3&shuffle=844890
