Flash to the Future

It's 8:12 am and I have been up for almost 3 and a 1/2 hours. My alarm went of at 4:50 am this morning. I woke up "Two is Better Than One" by Boys Like Girls and Taylor Swift. I didn't sleep well last night. I have a hard time falling asleep if I know I have to go to sleep and my suitemates were a little loud and there were people screaming outside my building. I don't know why it was so loud Wednesday night, but it was.

All that doesn't even matter because I flashed into my future! This morning, my Writing For Media 1 class took a field trip (Yes, you still go on field trips in college.) to WCAX, a family-owned tv news station in Burlington. Oh my goodness, it was so awesome. I was in heaven. The set was everything I imagined it would be and all I wanted to do was sit in the chair of power. We watched the 6:30 am broadcast which included a lot of weather and stories about things like a murder in a nursing home.

We got to see the editing room, the news room, the sales room, the behind-the-scenes room, and the actual set where the anchor sits. Like I said, I was in heaven. I always knew I wanted to be in news, but my fire has been re-lit so to speak. I realized that my goal is really within my reach. I can't wait to take the TV News Reporting class while I am at Saint Mike's and to eventually intern at a news station!

Oh, I can't wait! Now, I have to go to class, but I promise to keep you updated in my last few weeks of this semester!
