Update: Trib Internship

Yesterday I called the Trib about the supposed internship. The managing editor answered and me, going rather wild at not getting a voicemail, began speaking--not always a good thing--but thankfully, this time, the babbling was minimal. I shut my mouth and let her speak.

As for my prospects, I think I am in the running for an interview. She mentioned it on the phone, and asked me to call in a couple of weeks, giving me a new number to call. As I was scribbling all over Tiffany's phonebook, my hand shaking, I realized that she may just want me to stop calling her...

I will not focus my energies on negative options. Besides, I only called her twice: for information and to check if she received my resume and samples.

The internship will be over the summer, and I would learn so much from this experience. I would also get paid, which is uncommon in this area. I am looking into getting SHU credit for this internship too.

I don't want to get my hopes up, but the opportunity is tantalizing. Working with reporters, photographers, layout editors...This is what I was meant to do.

If it doesn't happen this time, I will find another alternative. If it does...well, we all know how I am when I am excited (screaming, crying and laughing absolutely included).

Thanks :-) I just want to know and get it over with.

Thanks Karissa for fixing my comments boxes. Very pretty.

I'm thinking of going to SHU (Fall 2005) and I was wondering if you could e-mail me your personal review of it. I'm also going into journalism. Could you tell me about the courses? The positives and negatives of SHU?

Thank you,

(I fixed them? Um, not from this angle... Thanks for the reminder.)

Amanda, I think your positive outlook on the ordeal is the best thing you can have for yourself at this point. Stay hopeful--I know you are "in the running." Stay hopeful and just don't think that this is the "only" internship opportunity out there. If you don't get it, there -are- others (ask the girl with the internship about internships -> moi!).
