School School School

So I have three essays due this week and I'm really enjoying the busyness that comes with that. I know it sounds crazy, but I love when school is the reason I wake up early and go to bed late - it's so much more rewarding than waking up to watch Rosanne.

I feel like I'm living in my ideas. I'm writing one paper on the media and terrorism - how my career choice gives a microphone to terrorists and then skews their words, creating a "cnn effect". I'm writing another paper on American patriotism (and using some fun little Sarah Palin quotations for ammo...pun intended?) and then another one on how Chomsky's a dirty Marxist (that topic was assigned!!!).

Things are going well. I'm sort of feeling like I don't enjoy the Sheaf as much this year, I keep thinking about graduate school and how I want a research project to obsess over. I never thought about graduate school before this year, so it's fun to imagine. I'm really lucky that Adam is so accomodating, and he will likely be able to study pastries in whatever city it is that I choose to continue my education in.

For the first time, I'm not wanting to skip out of school to write articles. I'm wanting to learn, learn, learn so that I can write interesting articles instead of the fluff pieces I've been making for the Neighbourhood Express and the Sheaf. I guess real experience in journalism has shown me what kind of journalist I really want to be. 

I'm so fucking happy I chose to pursue a Political Studies degree. It's so pertinent to what I want to do for a living!


Huzzah!

I would like to read all your essays.

I am missing writing essays. I never thought I would see the day, but it is dawning! I think all your essay topics are greatly interesting- and I am glad you are doing the Chomsky diry marxist one because it has a lot to do with late night book club at the outhouse featuring Amber M. Andrest, Justin W. Ziola, and our newest and best looking member- Anne-Marie Hickey. It occurs to me I don't know your middle name. What kind of sick friend am I?!
