I'm now saying "hello" from Syracuse, New York! If you've been following me for some time, you know I was accepted to SU's Newhouse School for Arts Journalism last year, but deferred in order to take advantage of a teaching fellowship in Israel. I left the fellowship, and am so incredibly happy to finally start my MA in journalism here in Newhouse!
And yes - we already started this one-year, year-round program. Here's a photo of me (giving bunny ears to "cardboard Janet") and my new cohort of amazing journalists, plus our two directors - Eric Grode and Johanna Keller!
I also finally met my friend Rivita Goyle! Amazing composer and audio engineer, musician, singer, what-have-you. We would've been in the same class year had I not deferred, and we've been talking for a while :) Go check out her stuff @ rivitamusic.com and keep your eye out for her new business, too!
We've just started "boot camp," a six-week intensive summer session to get us all on the same page with skills and such. I'm hoping it goes by fast; I have a feeling the name "boot camp" is not an endearing pet name, haha...
