Internship Week 1 Poppin some Voxes

Also known as going to work with out getting paid! Yes, it is a strange idea, especially seeing at least half of the journo’s here are noticeably younger than I am. I have been waiting for someone to ask me to make coffee for them so I can roundhouse them. SNAP! What I have learnt(…)

My very interesting week

So my first internship week turned out to be another holiday week for me. The Sunshine Coast Daily couldn’t take me so instead I was supposed to go to Brisbane News for three days. After my first afternoon they didn’t need me anymore… how nice. But the one afternoon that I did was very exciting.(…)

Adrian @ The QT: Return of the Jedi

Yeah, works well huh? Being my return to the blog as well as the final wrap up. So I didn’t do well at the blogging in the last week, but no-one else did so I don’t feel too bad. So I’ll condense the week down for you. Monday September 14. ‘Twas a long time ago now.(…)

Friday – Toughest and Most Wonderful day

Fridays are happiest and busiest days every week. Blue and white collar workers works as hard as possible to finish their Friday’s jobs as well as Saturday’s and Sunday’s and to enjoy happy and relaxing weekdays.

Not being able to come up with a new idea is a major hassle. Scratch that. Not being able to come up with a good idea is a major hassle. Everything I follow up just doesn’t seem to go anywhere. I’m starting to think I’m cursed. Although bylines aren’t coming thick and fast I am(…)

Some people seemed to have fun having ice creams, picnicking, or swimming at a bit cold water with their family, steadies or(…)

Adrian @ The QT: The Phantom Menace

Yeah, sticking with the Star Wars theme, no particular order, no particular reason, it just seems better than numerically listing them. So, the last day of the first week. Day Cinco. The ol’ Friday at the mill. The last dip at the swimmin’ hole. So I turn up and to my delight I am once(…)

Five litres of caffeine

I sit here now, toasty by the fireplace, dog asleep at my feet, typing about one of the most extraordinary, and seemingly, shortest weeks of my life. Day Five over.  More press releases and story ideas given to me.  More given right back after being researched, cut, slabbed, and pasted.  Another sports team, another community(…)
