So this going to be my last night here. This was an amazing experience that I will always remember. I had so much fun, even when I was fumbling around on Final Cut Pro. I’m going to miss everyone here; I really don’t want to go home yet. This program really should have been longer (sorry, Mom, I know you miss me). I was stunned by how quickly I felt comfortable here, something that almost never happens. Same with my roommate, Maggie. Who knew I would find someone else whom I could converse with about all my unusual interests? Needless to say, this was a much welcomed surprise.
I loved everything about this program, whether it was learning photography, learning video editing (which I’m still terrible at), or improving my writing. I know that being here has made me a better journalist.
Mostly I want to say thank you to all the professors, editors, writers, photographers and students who took time out of their busy schedules to help us crazy kids learn more about journalism. Really, thank you. Without you, we wouldn’t have been here and we wouldn’t have learned.
Now I can’t wait for the reunion!
