I can’t help, but feel a little removed from my place here at Rowan. By no means am I disappointed by this. I’m just didn’t really expect to feel this way before I even started my internship. I think, despite having a real “adult” job yet, I feel like I’ve reached a maturity or just a level of adulthood.
I remember before coming to Rowan, not even being sure if I would be able to handle this distance away from my family, but in fact, I think I’ve dealt well with the distance, and because of this it has made me into a more independent person, where when the time comes, I could make a large move if I chose to.
I have my orientation with NBC on Friday, and I’m becoming both nervous and excited about it. I hope I get a great experience out of it.
I started my teaching assistant position today. I thought it went well for a first day, and I’m sure as the semester goes on, although I will get more work with it, it will become easier to manage.
I never seem to give myself enough credit, but looking back on college, I’m damn proud of myself.
I’m back at school, and I don’t think I could be any more happy.
- Krystyna: Tell me why you were such a hottie in senior year
- Krystyna: With your curly ass angel hair
- Me: ????
- Krysytna: what was that, Jon?
- Me: I don't even really know how to respond to that.
- Krysytna: HAHAHA
I’m very excited to say that I’ll be interning this spring at NBC Universal in NYC. I was very suprised I got it, to be honest, just because of how much time had elapsed since my first interview, but I’m very happy and excited to take it on.
I’m also going to be a teaching assistant this semester for one of the Television Production courses for Practicum, so basically, I’m only taking two actual lecture courses this semester. One being Acting for the Camera, and the other Television History and Appreciation II. So, the homework workload should be pretty lax, I would think.
I am nervous, though, with it being my last semester at Rowan before Graduation. I’m dead set on my internship, and I would’ve been an absolute idiot to not take it. I do fear though that the time away from Rowan could hurt me socially. Most likely, I’ll be home Wednesday night till probably Saturday morning, unless I really have the determination to drive an hour and a half to two hours back to Rowan on a Friday night. I just hope I don’t feel forgotten or left behind.
In other news, I’m back at Rive Video for a few days doing some odd jobs around the place, which may lead to a small side job while I’m away at school, which would be awesome!
Also, it looks like I’m heading back to school with an unfinished room. I had switched bedrooms with my sister who moved out more than a year ago. I was planning on painting the room gray and just making it more of a mature room, but it just didn’t happen because more important things needed to be taken care of. All of my furniture is in the new room, and although it’s unfinished and has no heating at all, I love it.
I’ve been up at 3:00 in the morning a lot lately. I’m not happy about this.
