  1. YUCK! I can totally relate to you on this one, D! It’s week one around here and I am already feeling behind. Arabic, Bio of AIDS, Reporting For Print and Broadcast, Media Ethics and Law, and Computer Assisted Reporting…. I sigh each time I think of it.

    But the price to pay for a piece of paper and the hopes of a rocking job some day. Is it worth it? I guess we will have to meet up for a beer in ten years and debate that one out!

    Best wishes to you, I know that the semester will fly by before you know it. So where ya headed for summer? HA
