Post 2: November 12-14

(I was absent on a journalism trip so these days are combined) On Friday and Saturday I attended a journalism convention, and on Sunday we traveled home. At this point in the trip, my cleanliness was lacking; our hotel room was a disaster. So on Friday night we spent 10 minutes cleaning and it completely changed the atmosphere of the room.  Everyone had a feeling of relief to be staying somewhere where we could actually see the floor instead of it being covered in clothes. Similar to our previous days, they consisted of a lot of walking because it was our main mode of transportation, so physical health was achieved across the board.  While at the convention, we were tasked with assignments and had an allotted amount of time to shoot, edit, and submit our photos so order was a main focus.  Without order, I would have been unsuccessful in my submissions. Although the beginning of the week started well, Sunday was a different story.  In order to catch our flight, we had to wake up at 3 a.m. eastern time.  I needed to do homework from classes, but I was too tired to focus on any of my school work so I accepted the fact that I would not be able to complete it all in one day.  Once I finally got home I was able to do some work, however, I had a concert that night that I bought tickets for over two years ago.  This resulted in my day not being balanced at all.  I finally went to bed 22 hours after waking up for my flight that morning.

  1. I completely agree that cleaning that room felt so much better than when it was a disaster. I think it was a smart idea to set aside a short amount of time to straighten things up in order to give ourselves a sense of tranquility after, which was one of my virtues.
