So here is the thing: I don’t consider myself to be a type “A” person; so I do not know how many days are left until the conference. However, that does not contribute to how excited I am for the Washington Journalism Conference. Why? Because I’m PUMPED…oh, wait, how “structurally correct” does a blog post have to be?
Usually bloggers would’ve already left the reader when an inspirational thought, but at this point, I’m going to introduce myself. I consider myself to be a girl who makes calm conversations very awkward, and serious topics I make light. Some will call me rude, some will call me cold or weird. However, I am neither. I call this “Hannah”. Are you inspired yet?
My name is Hannah Morgan, and I am from West Virginia. I have teeth. My teeth are almost my significant other. Sorry, I’m getting weird. Here is the thing: I’m confused, but I do almost know one thing. This one thing is that I want to be a journalist. Unless something bizarre happens, I hope to be a successful one. I know, everyone wants to be successful…I’m just not a huge fan of the idea of living in a box…if that is your aspiration, you’re wild. But I do have this dream. I want to go outside of my comfort zone to reach the uncomfortable parts that need to be reported. I want to meet radicals; I want to meet the brave, because contrary to popular belief, these people are what needs to be reported…not reality stars. I want to see history be made. (I also would like to begin a sentence with “and”; because when people ask if it’s acceptable, I can notate, that in fact, I can do it because I am a writer.)
I am a complicated being, I’m sorry. I have dreams, I’m not sorry; I hope you have dreams, too.
Welcome to my Washington Journalism and Media Conference blog, I hope you enjoy the visit.
Also, if you are soon going to the conference and have any questions, I should have my email somewhere on this blog….feel free to ask!
