Spontaneous Travel Version 2015
Heads Up! It’s NaNoWriMo Time Again!
If you’re familiar with my life, which maybe you are, maybe you aren’t, you would know last year I took a six-week trip to Italy on a whim. It ended up being one, if not the best, experience of my life. Earlier this year I took a semi-spontaneous trip to visit my brother again in […]
So, last year you may remember me talking about participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). To recap, NaNoWriMo is a month where you sit down and squeeze out a minimum 50,000 words. It’s grueling but the end is so rewarding. Last year I ‘won’ NaNo. But, I haven’t touched what I wrote since then. […]
I won NaNo!
As you can see I have been quiet on here the past couple of weeks. There just doesn’t seem much to discuss. But something did come up. I started a new job in NYC yesterday. I really like it, and it was so unexpected. My office is right by Bryant Park so it is nice […]
All November I had been blathering on about NaNoWriMo, so if you’re reading this you’re likely to know the gist of it as well. I validated my novel around 6 p.m. local time on November 30, 2013. NaNo was one of the most thrilling, stressful, and fulfilling ventures I have ever undertaken. Some further obstacles […]
NaNoWriMo [National Novel Writing Month] is changing my life. I expected it to be hard, exhausting, and consuming; and it has definitely lived up to those descriptions. But, for me, it is also cleansing and a journey of discovery. With a week under the belt I have over 21,000 words and my expected date of […]
Today I was assigned to cover the court sentencing in the next county over. I was excited to go because a) It’s over an hour drive and I’ve never driven that far. B) This was a pretty big/interesting case. Now, I can’t really say I’ve covered a court case. I’ve tried. I tried my last […]
East Side Access!
I just covered my first press conference ever. This is so big for me. It was exhilarating. It was a county press conference unveiling the new taxi on patrol extension to the neighborhood watch program. Even the major news networks were there. I was so nervous but I didn’t want to come off as someone […]
The East Side Access Tunnel trip was incredibly fascinating and I learned so much. To reiterate, the East Side Access is a project connecting the LIRR to Grand Central Station. The LIRR only goes to Penn Station, which leaves many commuters with a long journey to work. Creating this project by adding three new […]
Today I handed in my first article. It was a different experience than handing it into a professor or peer to edit, grade, and return. I sat at my editor’s desk as he read out-loud my article. I couldn’t help but already nit-pick things that I could of changed, and small mistakes that I had […]
Going into my internship today! My first newspaper internship! I think I’m just working on my schedule with them today, but I’m prepared for anything. So anxious and nervous! This is it. This could be it.
