And may I say, I love some Chuckie... but chief WH corr?
Seriously NBC???
Though you are going the Russert route, turning a behind-the-scenes guy to the talking face...

the list

Here's the final (cough) list of grad schools I will be applying to. I like them mainly because their deadlines are at the earliest, late January. Yay!
In no particular order: LSU, UA-Little Rock and Middle Tennessee State University. There's decent markets close to all of them and they are in the South. Something that I have found is needed for my thin blood...
because I'm the idiot wearing flip-flops in the mountains in December (cough).

Now to get some suckers to write letters of rec for me.. heheheheheh

and to sleep!

I'm on my lunch break, the only time of the day I really get stuff done since I hate making phone calls in front of people. I literally wait until the whole newsroom is in the morning meeting to make my phone calls or wait until lunch to come to my apartment. (Another fun people anxiety factoid: the bathroom is right of the newsroom in this place, and you can hear the toilets flush from the newsroom, hence I've never gone there. Whatageek.)
I don't know what's wrong with me anymore. I sleep at least 10 hours a night but I have to drag myself out of bed.
What happened to me? I used to get by on 3-4 hours tops, waking at 3 a.m.
What's the dealio?
Tonight I resume the grad school process. I will finish at least one today, and e-mail LoR writers. I will. dammit.
I've forgotten how to be productive somewhere between all these pointless stories I write.
Only five more days until a week off.. and then I promise to be a good journalist in the new year.

making lemonade out of pecans.

I had today off, since I work tomorrow, and I just couldn't work six days in a row.
Take five.
  1. I'm applying to grad schools again. But this time, I'm really going to go, since I don't want to apply again.
  2. I finally found wool socks. My feet are thankful.
  3. I freaking de doo dah hate reporting. Blargh.
  4. I impulsed shopped at T.J. Maxx, getting an AP book - but since it was originally $30, and I got it for $6, I don't feel so bad.
  5. I really want some ice cream.. but I guess chocolate milk will do.
