A Day In The Life Of A Journalism Student

Tuesday, 17 May 2016 - just another day in the life. (Graduation is impending & I'm bloody ready for a rest!)
  1. β€’
    I woke up at 6:02. Earlier than usual for me.
  2. β€’
    A quick get ready & coffee in my @JimmyFallon mug as I run out the door.
  3. β€’
    Bus to park & ride to catch 7:07.
  4. β€’
    Another bus downtown, a bit of walking & I've arrived at Seattle's (or PNW!) most famous sausage and meat plant: Bavarian Meats.
  5. β€’
    I'm doing a postcard podcast for my radio class on their mom & pop authentic German meat company. They're now wholesalers and huge and growing.
  6. β€’
    Meet my tour guide, Jamie. Aka Jack Black in a white butcher coat, a big bushy beard and a few tats. 🐻
  7. β€’
    Amazing & fascinating tour. Not really as gross as I was expecting.
  8. β€’
    Mic runs out of batteries at one point. Of course. I fumble and panick internally, then decide to ditch it and go with the built in mic on the recorder. #journalismprobs πŸ™„
  9. β€’
    Finish tour & pack my free samples in my bag & head down to Pike Place Market, a 15 min walk.
  10. β€’
    Bavarian Meats has the cutest little storefront in the market. It's been there for decades and it sells everything authentic German you could want!
  11. β€’
    Interview the cheeky German woman there. She gives me & my friend a cold sausage. We buy pretzel bread and a few treats.
  12. β€’
    Next up, fuel. β˜•οΈ
  13. β€’
    Storyville Coffee is the πŸ’£ & that's another list for another time.
  14. β€’
    Mmm...10am lunch. #classy
  15. β€’
    That view though.
  16. β€’
    Love this place.
  17. β€’
    Also spent this time admiring Harry's new hair. (Pic under sad circumstances tho. πŸ˜”)
  18. β€’
    Run & catch the Link to the U.
  19. β€’
    The Link is beautiful & new & quick. Makes this seattleite feel like I'm in a smaller NY or London. :)
  20. β€’
    Admire my gorgeous campus on my way to my 11:30 class. 🌹🌸🌼
  21. β€’
    Portfolio class at school. We talked about using Adobe InDesign for building good resumes and websites. Cumbersome work yet necessary. πŸ˜ͺ
  22. β€’
    Receive text during class that friend had her baby! AH!
  23. β€’
    Leave early for 2pm interview on the eastside.
  24. β€’
    Set up video interview for another class! At this point I am πŸ™ƒ

    Finish up & get some more fuel! β˜•οΈ

    With tea in my portage bay mug.

    Night world! πŸ˜΄πŸ™ƒπŸ˜ͺ😴
