Live from July camp: Second-to-last day

“The second to last day of camp.” Those words rang through my head as I got on the bus this morning, I was excited, we were going to see WCCO today and it was going to be a blast, but at the same time, my heart was saddened because we only had a short period of time left to us.

Live from July camp: Day 11

This morning was a beautiful, peaceful day — a nice way to start off class. Too bad there’s no windows in the classroom to admire the day.

The day began like the others before it — we all met in room 303. After checking Facebook to make sure that we knew what was going on in everyone else’s lives, we started at 9:30 a.m.

Live from July camp: Day 9

Day nine of Journalism camp began in the best way possible: with a cookie. I sat down at my computer and was immediately offered a chocolate chip cookie by David, who sits next to me. The day only got better from there.

This is kind of a sad day. It’s sad because this morning we lost Breann from our “team.” I thought she took the wrong bus because she said she was going to ride with David and me.

Today is the seventh day in camp — July 14 — and we all are working hard to get our interview questions answered — making phone calls, and leaving messages.

Who knew Journalism was such hard work and intimidating at the same time? I didn’t know about it until I started attending camp. It doesn’t matter how much hard work and frustration I have to go through, this is the coolest experience of all.


Live from July camp: Day 5

When I signed up for camp, I had no idea it would be so fun. I do like school but it’s like camp teaches more, but is fun at the same time. It’s awesome.

Live from July camp: Day 4

Friday was a pretty good day as far as even J-camp days go. It started by me getting a ride to the campus as usual, but I brought my longboard this time so I could explore the campus a little bit more.


Live from July camp: Day 3

Today began like the previous two days did: We arrived at the O’Shaughnessy Educational Center at St. Thomas at 9:30 a.m., and it was off to the races.
