I'm not dead! (+New York)

How many times have I used that as a post title, I wonder?

But anyways--I really am here, just, I've not been posting in the last several days. (Or the last couple weeks, it appears.) I've been busily working on several final projects/papers, plus I went home for Mother's Day this past weekend (and conspired with my sister to royally surprise my mom), and I'm leaving for New York in... five short days.

That said, I'll soon have a music video of a Tom Lehrer song up on YouTube. (It's one of those final projects I've been burying myself in.) I finished editing over half of it today, so if all goes well, I'll have it uploaded on Thursday morning.

In the meantime, I'll be working on a porfolio that I've had to put off until tonight/tomorrow.... it shouldn't be that big of a deal.

And then.... New York! That's for the World Journalism Institute's New York course in backpack journalism, for which I'll spend three weeks in Manhattan, reporting on the latest and greatest news in the area, using all sorts of media--text, video, audio, photo, whatever you can think of. The Wheeling trip story a few weeks ago was a pre-class project I had to do for that.

I can't believe I'm actually going to take this course. I've been interested in it for quite a while--even looked into applying for it last year, but neither the schedule nor the finances were working out for that. This year, it's a different story--and I will be quite busy for the next four weeks. It's pretty much a dream come true. (A medium-sized dream. The big dream is yet to come, if ever to be realized.)

The title reminds me of Monty Python and the Holy Grail... "I'm not dead yet!"
