A Certain Lack of Focus

Summer Craze

Well I haven't posted in quite some time, but I've got lots of excuses I swear! As it turns out, I did manage to get the internship with Cleveland Magazine back in March, it was fantastic. I loved working there and could see doing something like that for a career. Having said that, I've decided NOT to take a journalism class this semester for two reasons: one, I can't get credit for it because it would be cross-listed with undergrads and two, I'll be taking creative non-fiction instead which is probably closer to my area of interest. Still I got an awful lot out of the internship and hope to put those skills to good use this year. I was a little bit crazed for most of last semester between my internship and my illustration class, I did get a few nice portfolio pieces out of the illustration class though. I'm hoping to update my website sometime this summer, but I've got a few other things I need to work on first. I'm working for the Vindicator to get everything I need to get done finished before the school year starts, that's about twenty hours a week which isn't bad, only I'll probably be working more than that once I get set up for web stuff. I need to design, create and start a website for the Vindicator which currently has not much of anything. I'd also like to start doing some blogging stuff for the Vindicator: a tech blog, an education blog, maybe a few more. I'll probably host those here since I can't do comments etc on the University website. Aside from Vindi stuff right now I'm working on getting moved which is a huge pain in the ass. Particularly as I'm supposed to be getting a start on my novel, which I'm writing for my MFA thesis. Thesis credit starts for me in Fall semester, so I'm really going to go crazy! More later.
