Extra, extra

It’s been a while since I last blogged: school, projects and work have all gotten in the way, and it’s once again that time of year where exams take over students’ lives.

So while procrastinating from my long, long to-do list, I will update you on my busy, busy life.

For starters, classes finish Dec. 10. Boy how time flies.

On Dec. 12, I’ll be starting my three-week internship at 24 Hours newspaper. The best part is that I won’t be taking part in the typical intern duties, like grabbing coffee or answering phones. Luckily for me, I get to report and write daily, with a story published every day in the paper.

The opportunity gives me course credits at school, and, if I choose, can count towards my four-week work experience in second semester.

It’s exciting; it’s scary. I’m going from being a full-time student, to being a full-time intern and then going back to being a full-time student, and somewhere in all of that I will be feasting on turkey. No winter break for me.

In other news, I have now been a part of Kwantlen’s President’s Ambassadorial Team (PAT) for a couple of months now.

Being on the team keeps me busy (I just baked 65 cookies for a bake sale to raise money for the PAT clothing drive) and it has proven to be a great learning and networking opportunity (I met Carol James several weeks ago, and had public speaking training with Langley Mayor Peter Fassbender).

I must now cease my procrastination, but I will end with two final tidbits.

First, on Saturday I will be accompanying Dal Richards on the piano as he sings Christmas carols at a local women’s shelter.

And second, I have been promoted: I was elected the Entertainment Bureau Chief for the Kwantlen Runner a while ago, that’s nothing new. But in a recent Google search, I was alerted that I am now the Entertainment Furniture Chief…
