Life has been super busy this past week. My interview with the National Guard went really well. Two-hours-long well.
And, I received a call from the California National Guard and have two interviews scheduled — one for later today, and one for Friday. I made both phone calls without scripts, which made me really happy. I also called a PA Guard spouse and left a voicemail (I plan to call again later today).
I also worked on the two articles due next week. I thought my word limit was 700 but realized it’s 300 (700 is for the Guard piece). It’s been pretty interesting, working a 1,400 word article down to 850. It’s currently in the mid-700 area. My roommate from freshman year (and fellow history major, though she’s doubling with English whereas I’m doubling with journalism) gave me a few suggestions today — she is the only reason why the word count is no longer +800!
