  1. A Heads-Up of Sorts.

    by , June 23rd, 2013 at 03:13 PM (Beam's Blog of Writing and Other Things.)
    So starting tomorrow, I'll be attending an internship at a company near my home. The email description said I'll probably be working Monday through Friday, from 9 AM to 3 PM. The internship runs from tomorrow (June 24th) to August 13th. It's an unpaid internship, but the experience will be more than worth it, since I'll be working with a well known and respected company and it'll look good on my resume, and it'll be getting experience in doing something I think I want to do after I get out of school. ...
  2. Wordsmithing.

    Over the past few days I've been touching up, updating, and generally rewriting my old resume. It desperately needed an update and a rewrite because of my major change, but I've been going back to it because my hope is to get an internship this summer. I have to do an extra year at school and, while my journalism program does require a six credit internship in order to graduate, I won't be able to take it until the semester of my graduation, and I'd like to have a little more experience than just ...
  3. Media classes have ruined me.

    Now every time I try to watch or read something I end up sitting there wondering what kind of message it's trying to send, and whether or not it challenges stereotypes or enforces them. No seriously, I watched Rizzoli & Isles last week and then spent the day after trying to figure out if the show enforces or challenges female stereotypes.

    Oh man, I should totally do a rewatch of some of my old favorite classic series (here's looking at you, Utena). That would be a lot of fun to ...

  4. Good start to the day.

    by , October 25th, 2012 at 09:32 AM (Beam's Blog of Writing and Other Things.)
    So I got up this morning a touch later than I normally do because my first class isn't until 11:30. Made my bed, got dressed, ate breakfast (noted I forgot to lock my dorm room door last night... derp), and signed on to check my e-mail as I tend to do when I have time to kill so I can stay on top of things with my friends and classes.

    As many of you will recall from my string of blog posts on the subject, I've decided to shift over to the journalism major. This requires a complete shift ...

  5. On the Subject of School and Writing.

    by , October 1st, 2012 at 07:47 PM (Beam's Blog of Writing and Other Things.)
    On the school side of things, finally got my application for switching into the School of Communication and Information, and the journalism major, submitted tonight. I worked on the one page essay over the weekend, touched it up a bit, and put it in. Now it's just a waiting game on their response to see if I'll be accepted or rejected. I think my chances are pretty good and the acceptance rate is apparently pretty high, but I'm still a little nervous about it.

    On the writing side of ...
