When The Going Gets Tough

So I learned something this week… Always look for the bright side to life. For the last 5 days, I was in Washington DC with 15 other members of my university’s National Broadcasting Society chapter at the national convention. There we listened to professionals talk about the industry and entered some competitions. Well guess what. The whole thing sucked!
The convention was unorganized and the competitions were so unfairly categorized that no one in our chapter left happy. Needless to say, it was a very stressful time. So I kept trying to think… How do you take this stressful experience and find the positive? Well, look for the things that happened in between the actual convention.
I was there with 15 of the coolest people I go to school with. Some I am very close with and others I barely knew. But we all have a connection… We all love broadcasting. We got to do things that I never thought we would ever get to do. Hang out with Lincoln at the National Mall at 3am, almost die of hypothermia shooting a story, and just make new friends! These are the things that make all the stress so much better.
I now have 15 new brothers and sisters who I have shared an incredible journey with. They showed me a great time and I hope we can experience more good times before I graduate.
