Jschool 2009

Out of the fire, and into Dante’s Inferno

I cursed my luck again as the offer and working hours came in just a couple of day after I started my new job. Granted, it was closer to what I originally wanted, but still, it’s not right that I’m often forced to disappoint those counting on me. What would my fellow Jschoolers think? Anyways,(…)

Plastic Cup Politics

I thought it was about time to tell everyone what I’ve been up to for the past two weeks but before that I think you should all look at the Queensland Shakespeare’s Ensemble’s website. They seemed to have enjoyed my review so much they decided to put it up on their website. My first quote;(…)


I had just survived a gruelling, hair raising, tearing, and torturous, lucky escape and laid out all the week’s sport for the first time off my own bat.   Stretching my arms back behind my head I breathed a sigh of glee and relief when the sports editor said to me, “How about you make(…)

The last goodbye

2009 Jschool Valedictory from Brett Barfoot: Welcome to Jschool’s class of 2009 graduation ceremony. I would like to express my sincere thanks to all the family and friends who have travelled from near and far to help us celebrate the closing of one magnificent chapter and the beginning and rebirth of eight eager and questioning(…)

Media Creates Conflicts!?

From last September to early October, a US media report could have been likely to worsen the relationship between Japan and the United State. Are you surprised at this fact? The incident reported happened in my home town, Fukuoka Prefecture in Japan. An American father, Christopher Savoie, found his Japanese ex-wife did not come back from her(…)

This is Tiwi

Grand Final day on the Tiwi Islands and the mercury is above 35. The locals are out in force displaying mostly red, white and black colours but there’s a few with blue and white. Passionate about their football the Tiwi islanders became a little famous this year after an ABC documentary on their local team(…)

My internship week- the one and only

I went down to Sydney and Marie Claire magazine and all I got was the flu. I knew that my internship was going to be either a fabulous experience or a complete disaster. It turned out to be the latter. I could have been in a regional newspaper getting bylines like all the others but(…)

Week Two – Domination

Well that is probably an exaggeration, (Adrianno tells me I need powerful headlines) but I have felt much more confident this week as have found my niche, namely obsequios-sycophant-vox-poping-treeplanting-PR-spin-doctor. Yes, I’ve honed my interviewing skills and feel quite comfortable giving people the 20 questions,,, I’m not afraid to ask the hard questions dam it! Like:(…)

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.(…)
