Well first off I wanted to share that I have made the second step in becoming an R.A. They have emailed me to schedule an interview, and then we'll see from there! The only problem I seem to be having is fitting the R.A. class into my schedule next semester. It's already difficult enough to fit classes when double majoring and then minoring, but now an extra class?! I don't think this is going to work. It's a shame though since being an R.A. would have been a good oppurtunity to save some money and embellish my resume. I'm still going to the interview to see if I'll even get accepted, but if I do, taking the class will be my biggest dilemna. I guess I'll worry about it when the time comes.
The second thing I wanted to share was my bitterness at how my section looked in the Beacon this week. If I have not mentioned this before, I'm a news editor for The Behrend Beacon and in charge of the "Features" section. Although it's nice to have a blank canvas, it also is a little difficult having to come up with content that is different. I have to make sure the features page is distinct from local and world news, the other sections in news. This week I was happy with the content (editorials on the career fair and a fundraiser called "3 Miles for Smiles" (the issues can be viewed at thebehrendbeacon.com). However, I was not happy about how the page printed out. I don't know if it was my fault or the publishing company's, but something needs to be done so the colors on my page don't looked washed out.
