So, I am in my second week at my internship. I love it. It is an amazing opportunity. Prayers are always welcome. My everyday responsibilities include: writing a few articles (thank ya Jesus), transcribing interviews and letters to the editor, clerical work (telephone, mail, etc), writing up interview questions and doing research and whatever else I am told to do. I am really happy about the opportunity and I am learning a lot about interviews, editing and just the magazine world. The plan Stan is to learn as much as I can, while I am here. So with that said, I will have updates about life in the D.C./ Maryland area. I hope you enjoy the reads.
I haven't taken any pictures yet,(booooo bad journalist), but I will. I promise. I am going to try to figure out how to post the little mini-articles I have written on here as well! The funny thing about it is EVERYONE who knows me has been so supportive. I really appreciate it. I have had a rough year and this experience and support has been a wonderful remedy. What I really love are the late night text messages from none other than my mom, we will call her B.Sams, about what I should write about the next day. I definitely want to talk about the entire atmosphere of D.C. though. It is very different than what I am use to. Hopefully this weekend I can take a few pics and post them online to document the entire experience. Also your girl is close to Howard LOL enough said!!! They really do have a beautiful campus. I will take some pictures of that too.
My next post on New Beginnings should have lots of pictures of D.C. and Maryland and a description of my day. I am just saying that as a reminder to myself. Highlights thus far? I got to speak to the owner of the magazine Jamie Brown and she is really nice. Deitrick Haddon called the office and I wrote up some questions for some upcoming interviews!!!
