Blues no more

Aaaaah. The smell of a new semester, a new year.
But wait a minute? Darcy you might have jumped the gun and come to class a day early, but the journalism building is looking eerily quiet today.
Where is everyone? Still on vacation?

In our intermediate TV class today, there were four of us. Brian Gabrial, our teacher, seemed a little confused as to where everyone was.

The food counter in the building (although too overpriced for me to be buying anything in the first place.) is closed. Maybe a few students could not function without coffee and simply decided to go back to bed until food and coffee are available.

The department's secretary wasn't there today, and the light were shut off in her office...eery indeed.

On the bright side, I am up and at 'em, ready to start the semester again, eager to continue writing, shooting and editing. I have, what I believe to be five fantastic classes and cannot wait to get going on the projects. Yes, yes, eager am I, but news doesn't wait...imagine all the stories I could have produced over the last month for school projects?

The next few days will go by and I will see how this semester will evolve. I feel the September J-school blues being washed away by the snow - YES! I'm back in business!

Muuuahahah - We're all in the afternoon class...come take a walk on the wildside.

Mel, Brian has asked for students in the afternoon class, to switch to the morning class. I don't know how many can or will, because quite a few of us have a Radio shift in the morning.

aw mel, i'm glad your blues have been muffled by the snow, but don't you miss radio even an eensy little bit? i keep forgetting the newsroom isn't my home anymore; it's undergone a process of "journalistic ecological succession" with this new group coming in.

i'll probably be switching over from the dark side to join you for the morning TV class! *eyes sikander and darcy*
