Remember to Sleep

Last week, I came home Wednesday night and stayed until Saturday morning. I had to be back up at school early on Saturday to shoot Celebrate Downtown Okemos for my package. I was there from about 1:30-6 p.m., and I ended up getting a lot of great shots and talking to some interesting people. After the event, I went back to HOMTV and put all of my footage onto a hard drive and made sure everything turned out OK. When I came home that night, I was absolutely exhausted. Whenever I have a hard deadline for an assignment, I can never sleep. I was anxious a couple of days before filming the event because I wasn’t sure if I was going to get everything I needed. Fortunately, I didn’t have much planned on Sunday besides dinner with my family, so I was able to sleep in. However, that Sunday night, I once again wasn’t able to fall asleep because I knew I had to get everything edited and turned in by Monday at 1 p.m. (It was supposed to be 9 a.m., but Brandie gave me an extension)

The guys I intern with thought it was pretty funny that they started making up new names for me. Something about “My name’s Marlee, give me your computer.” I was basically hopping to and from each computer because I was trying to be on the one that was working the best. Thankfully, I finished everything, and I was able to watch my package LIVE on Meridian Magazine that evening while I was crewing the show.

I would have to say my favorite thing about summer is being outside. Unfortunately, my internship keeps me inside a lot of the days, so whenever I get home, I always try to spend at least an hour outside, walking around. Even if I’m by myself, I always put my ear phones in and go for a walk at night.

I have to crew a Township Board meeting tonight, but hopefully I’ll be done at a decent hour. Wednesday, I’ve decided, is going to be my day to catch up on sleep and homework. Thursday, I have to be back at HOMTV by 5 p.m. to help with some sets, and then I’m done… for the week.

I’m excited to go shopping and out to eat and just relax for a couple of days. (Knowing me, I won’t actually be relaxing) And then, I’m back to East Lansing on Sunday night for another packed week!
