My life just became a lot more busy because I got promoted to copy chief for the newspaper I work at. I'm a boss in-training of people now! Theoretically, I could even FIRE people, but of course, I'm not that mean (and I'd probably need a semi-legitimate reason to fire anyone, but you know. MINOR DETAILS in the larger scheme of my AWESOME AUTHORITY). I even get to hire an assistant this week. I am so legit. I have underlings! Anyway, I thought that I would be taking over next semester, after I get training and stuff, right? Well, obviously I thought wrong. The new desk editors take over after spring break, which means I have a grand total of two and a half weeks to get my shit together and learn my new (time consuming!) job. So when we come back, all of us will be running around "like chickens with our heads cut off"* trying to figure out how to not make the paper tank.
Did I mention that I'm not even a journalism major? Apparently, I am a glutton for extra hours and responsibility and getting yelled at for failures.
Also, I joined another fashion show. Because I'm an addict and all my friends are doing it, and I fall quickly to peer pressure like that. Plus, I have all of these pretty new clothes! More excuses to wear them!
What I'm wondering now, is how am I supposed to write with all of this stuff I'm juggling? The answer is I haven't in nearly two weeks now, and I promised at least a fan fiction update yesterday. Whoops. I don't know when that's going to happen. I have two midterms coming up. I want to start a new project, but I don't know how I'm going to dedicate any serious time to it with the way my schedule is running at the moment.
I'm sure many of you are busy people too, with jobs and children and a whole host of responsibilities that I don't even want to contemplate. How do you do it? The first thing I'm starting with is trying to not be on Facebook as much, if that counts as a step. I'm trying and kind of failing!
*quote by my friend, the news editor, and I think it appropriately sums up how well I'm going to handle it when I take over.
