Two words that strike fear into everyone’s hearts: Summer School. However, I’m on a week long course that I am voluntarily attending, so it’s not a bad thing at all!
When I applied for the Young Journalist Academy, I admit that I didn’t think I’d have much of a chance but as it was free I though ‘why not’. I think my Dutch genes are really coming into full force at the moment as I seem to jump at the chance of anything being for free.
Then the weird things started to occur. I got an interview. In a bit of a daze, I went to said interview and managed to keep calm enough to chat away. A week later, I was informed that I had been accepted onto the course. It seems surreal when I think about it now, but I’ve now had two days on the course and I love it.
THIS is why I’m not going to be posting for the next week or so, but due to a competition I will be posting on my own journalism blog on tumblr. If you’re curious as to what I’m getting up to (I promise it’s interesting!) then go ahead and check it out: http://howtojournalist.tumblr.com/
I’ll also try to add another video to my youtube account soon, so keep your eyes open: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvQDW8lmwIXMBhV-FCH1eKg . On that note, I’m thinking of renaming my channel – GoldyEl came from mixing my name with Gold due to the fact I have blonde hair and a Golden Retriever, so I think it’s time for a change!
Thanks for reading as always and speak to you soon – El
