Just another site

It’s my last day in Jordan

And what am I thinking about? I don’t know.

I’m waiting for edits. I’m nervous for edits. I just bought a new suitcase downtown–the zipper broke on my other one. It’s currently keeping me company at McDonalds, where I’m wasting time on the internet, waiting for fucking edits.

I’ve been in Jordan for over a month. It hasn’t been enough time, not even close. I feel like I’ve spent so much of my time running around, chasing people down, tired because of a combination of the workload and the insane heat. I still have to do almost all of my assignments for my Middle East Studies class–good thing they’re due the 20th.

There’s never enough time.

Every minute on this trip that I spent not writing, I should have been writing. Every minute I spent not reporting, I should have been reporting. This may sound like a lot to some of you, but tis the nature of our profession. It was a great experience. I’m so glad I came here as a journalist–I feel like after this, nothing is out of my reach. But at the same time, this trip was a lot of work–so much so that I feel like I haven’t been able to explore Amman as much as I wanted to.

Whatever. I’m tired. This is a bad final post, so I’ll post a better one later.

On an unrelated note, tomorrow, after our plane lands in London, I’ll be boarding a connecting flight to Dublin. I kind of still wanna blog once I’m there, so check me out on my main WordPress blog (that I’ve yet to post on) that I think I will post about Dublin on. So if you’re interested,
