What Men Are Really Thinking (mock ad)

Awake in the Middle of the Night

Well, here I am, awake at 4:30am for no apparent reason, and I can’t get back to sleep. I’ve been tossing and turning all night anyway. There’s only been one thing on my mind, really, and that’s how today’s going to go. I’ll be job shadowing a local tv personality for the second time today, but instead of carrying around a notepad and pen, I hope to bring a voice recorder. I would have picked one up over the weekend, but insomnia and sleeping odd hours prevented that, so I can only hope there will be one available this morning at school to sign out, or it going to make today a lot harder.

My second related concern is taking pictures today. Frankly, I’m not very good at it, I just don’t have an eye for it. I’m a writer, not a photographer. They’ve taught us how, but it hasn’t really boosted my confidence. The added bonus is the possibility of the college using one of the pics I take today on the front page of the annual magazine my journalism program produces each year, called ‘Expressions’. So, yeah, no pressure.

Since I can’t sleep, I’ve been thinking about whether to reschedule today’s job shadowing for another day this week when I can spent the entire day with this particular tv personality taking pictures and doing interviews, instead of just the few hours we’ve scheduled. The trouble is, there’s no a lot of time left to get this done, the news feature I’m doing is due, at the latest, in 11 days. Well, I have 3 hours to decide.
