Week 1 Washebek
I’m done with the second week of this class, and I still haven’t heard back from my soldier. I can’t help but worry and think that I am going to be really far behind if I don’t hear back from her soon. I feel like most of the other students in my class have already gotten together with their soldiers, but I still have no idea about mine. I hope she gets back to me soon because I don’t want to fall behind on this project that already intimidates me. I have 12 more weeks to go. By the end of this semester, I am expected to have written, edited and finalized a 2,000 word article about my veteran as well as a series of podcasts, journal entries and an essay about myself. That is a lot to complete considering I am a full time student. I’m taking three other courses on top of this one. I’m also a reporter for the school newspaper, and I get assigned one or two articles a week for that. Outside of campus life, I am a customer service representative at a call center where I spend anywhere between 15 to 30 hours a week. After writing down all of my obligations for the semester, it makes me want to go crazy.
