i never tumbl anymore because it always is a timesuck and this school is insane. so many long-term investigative projects.
but also i just accepted an internship at the orange county register in santa ana - part of the greater LA area. insane. i am so beyond excited. a place where my spanish can continue being put to use, something paid, AND, the new owner is this crazy dude that is EXPANDING the newspaper in the midst of all the doomsday talk surrounding journalism.
they have a great watchdog investigative team and told me if i work hard i will probably get hired.
just saw neil young front row at madison square garden and smoked pot with 50-year-old strangers in the front row. sleep.
macklemore at irving plaza was incredible.
brought gringa to thanksgiving and it was hilarious.
so much to do this weekend. can’t wait to graduate and get a job.
interview with village voice last week and interview with the miami herald next week. opportunities for investigative stories are presenting themselves. meeting people who will hire me later. things are hard, but looking up.
“ALL NEWS PERSONNEL, INCLUDING PHOTOGRAPHERS, WITH VALID NYPD PRESS CREDENTIALS, SHALL, AT THEIR OWN RISK, BE ALLOWED TO ENTER EVACUATION ZONES OF NEW YORK CITY FOR NEWS GATHERING PURPOSES DURING THE COURSE OF THE STORM.” - cops
“…Beyond that, we want to caution you about the severity of the coming storm and against underestimating its danger, and the need to be prudent about venturing out for any reason, including attempting to cover this as a story. Unless you truly need to leave your residence, it is best to stay home. With mass transit suspended, your mobility will also be hampered anyway; you do not want to get stranded.
While we know some of you may be planning or want to venture out to report and shoot, please very weigh carefully the risks of injury to you and those around you, and also to the gear you may be using.”
