Looking around, jumping in / by Helen Arase

I'm still waiting to see how one internship application shakes out. But in the meantime I need to be doing something to get me moving forward. 

I'm at a place right now that doing a project for someone else or for a cause motivates me a little more than if I'm doing projects for myself. I'm in a static place in my personal life and that's spilling into my self-assigned projects. 

I heard about a freelancing opportunity near my hometown. A local paper needs photographers to help cover graduations and maybe freelance after that. I made contact with the photo editor and am supposed to speak with him tomorrow. 

I'm nervous and excited. I hope they can use me.
