Looking Ahead: Junior Year

It still blows my mind to think that I’m just a few months from becoming a junior. I am halfway through with my undergrad and I’m beginning to feel like I’m running out of time to do a lot of things I’ve been wanting to do. Of course the only thing in my mind now is moving- but there are also so many things ahead of today that I will like to do also. Among those, write for the Daily Bruin.

I’ve always wanted to write for the school paper- it just hasn’t happened yet. Whether it is because of lack of time or motivation, I’m running out of excuses to give myself for not writing. So I’m guessing it’s now or never.

The Daily Bruin takes applications within the first two weeks of the Fall semester and I’m gonna get ready for that. I want to be an opinion writer (duh!) and I gotta figure out my pitch. I can talk about being a student worker. A sober college student (true story). or I could talk about being gay- but I also don’t want that to be the reason why they don’t pick me… but would it? Fingers crossed that it isn’t.

All I know is that looking ahead, things look pretty good. I’ll be checking out apartments this weekend- my girlfriend and I are moving in together pretty soon. We might be getting that dog also. And I’ll be a junior…

    In today’s world (and as a fellow Southern California female), I think being sober trumps being gay as far as shock-value goes.

    My school paper was pure crap. I wrote to the editor on a monthly basis, begging them to include something from the campus that wasn’t pure fluff or jacked straight off msnbc… no luck there. But I hope you do a better job than the journalists at Cal State ******* did, which I think you absolutely will judging by your blog. Best of luck to you darling.

    You might be right, staying sober in college isn’t an easy task. Specially because everyone drinks, and they expect you to do the same. It gets even trickier when people try to make you drink because that way “you’d have more fun.”

    Sorry to hear about your paper- I hope I can share a different experience if I’m able to join the Daily Bruin 🙂
