Ten day shuffle

It’s been ten whole days since I posed a blog. Clearly there must be a lot of stuff going on in my life, right? haha. Well I’ve been studying pretty hard for exams; conquered two today, Newfoundland History and International Issues. I found NL History quite difficult, but I’m pretty sure I passed it anyway. International Issues I feel pretty confident about, at least an 80 for sure.

Like I said, I’ve been doing a lot of studying – other then that, cleaning my house and wrapping Christmas presents. I can’t wait until Thursday afternoon – I’ll be free for Christmas holidays! Aaron may still have to work on Friday so I’ll be sticking around for a while and we’ll be driving to Pasadena and spending the night there with my Aunt & Uncle, and my parents who travelled in to Corner Brook for a night.

I have two more exams tomorrow, Internet Journalism and Reporting & News Writing. I don’t anticipate Internet Journalism will be overly hard, but I’m going to study my butt off anyway; you can never be too careful.

I’ll leave you with that, dear reader. When you hear from me again it will be from Labrador, I’ll be writing on my moms swanky new computer and wishing it were mine lol. Oh the joy of having work and being able to pay for things.

Catch you later – from the Big Land.

Out with the Tide

As a part of the Internet Journalism course I’m taking in my second year of J-school we have to make ‘professional’ blogs. I post a wide variety of things here on Travelling Infinity, and to be truthful, alternating my way of thought & type to make this blog strictly professional is something I’m not ready for.

Out with the Tide is a whole new blog project for me, I’m feeling slightly nervous about writing there. I have a fear that once I start writing there, using a whole new Twitter & Facebook profile to make myself more ‘presentable’ to prospective employers, that I’ll lose touch with the personality and tone that I use here for Travelling Infinity.

I’ll basically be posting on the Tide once a week, sharing my experiences with being a reporter in small town Newfoundland; the challenges, the accomplishments, and everything in between.

This is the .png that I made for the Gravatar accompanying my Tide blog.

 

Finally, a reminder about the 2011 Bloggers Choice Awards. As I mentioned before, I’m up for Blog of the Year in the Personal/Journal category. A kind thank you to all who have voted for me, and to those who continue to vote daily. If you haven’t voted, you can do so here. If you leave a comment anonymously I get one point. If you type in your name (you have to put your name in BEFORE you write “travelling infinity” in the box) I get five points. If you yourself have a blog, your vote (if you’re logged into the blog) will get me 10 points!

Thanks again. See you all again soon.
