Newswriting Blog

Newswriting has been more of a challenge to blog for; however, we must perservere. The events that we've covered, the articles we've written, and the readings we've completed all contribute to this blog.

It is how these separate parts combine and function together that makes all of our blogs unique. It is interesting to trace the development of the Newswriting blog compared to the Drama blog: it seems so much easier to blog for Drama because as a Literature major - writing comes more naturally. This condense, condense, condense business really is a challenge. However, my goal is to keep all the Newswriting entries brief and packing quick bursts of knowledge - just like news articles should be written.

So, without further hestitation....

This might sound like a strange entry to pick - however, I feel as though lately all I do is work, work, work....I even have a giant calendar in my room counting down the weeks. It is bittersweet that this is the senior year: I want to move on to grad school; at the same time, I am enjoying the challenge of having all these literature classes at once. In Everyman, although friends might be fleeting in our lives, I've learned an important lesson here at Seton Hill - these friends are the ones that are here to get us through....and I just want to thank all of you - especially the senior English majors. I am looking forward to graduating with you all :) It is really wonderful to be in classes with all of you, everyday and to be greeted with warm and smiling faces. You've helped me keep on track with this crazy schedule, and I couldn't ask for better people to share my time here at Seton Hill. So here is to our senior year: may it be the best ever!
