Rocking on

October 2, 2009

It’s Thursday night of week number two at the Medill downtown Chicago newsroom. The week so far included

being given a rosary as a present,

perfecting the art of having breakfast, putting on make-up and checking in with the reporters on the train ride to the newsroom,

jumping into the cold water and swimming, also known as web producing, day 1,

losing track of everything and getting it back together, also known as web producing, day 2,

and the shock of the Medill experience so far.

Or otherwise (all numbers are educated estimates):

Hours spent at the newsroom / in class this week so far: 40

Hours spent sleeping: 15

coffee runs: 5

Visits to Emergency room: 1

Oh, wait, easy… I wasn’t the one having the emergency. But it still was pretty crazy.

In short: special thanks to Mike, Danny, Will, Kelsey, Jacqui, Kennedy, Sonja and Sofia. Where would I be without friends like you? You guys fucking rock.

And if you wanna know what’s really badass, check out the top stories for Wednesday, the day it all went down: Kennedy, Jacqui, Will, Danny (who did one of the videos), Mike and Jessica. Because that’s just how we roll.
