Journalism Boot Camp

There is no better way to describe the past week than journalism boot camp.

Lesson #1: Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Prepare accordingly.

Lesson #2: Know your gear backwards and forwards. See above.

Lesson #3: Ponchos, ponchos, ponchos. Paying $9 for over priced ponchos to avoid soaked gear is not cool.

Lesson #4: Be familiar with the area surrounding where you will be working. WiFi and coffee are especially important.

Lesson #5: Expect the unexpected (both good and bad).

Lesson #6: Take ORGANIZED notes. Always. No excuses.

Lesson #7: Somehow find the time to clear your head, relax a bit and eat some real food.

Lesson #8: Find professional-looking shoes that are actually comfortable. Blisters can ruin your week.
