This past week, I was published for the first time! Wow, what an amazing feeling that was. I am not a set part of the newspaper staff for the ArkaTech here on campus, I am just in the newspaper practicum. This means that we always write stories with the potential of going in the newspaper but not always do they get chosen. Often times, you don’t know ahead of time either if they’ve been chosen or not. I anxiously awaited all week to find out if my paper would make the story. Thursday finally came so I grabbed the newspaper and began to search. There it was on the first page! It made the bottom fold of the first page! This is one of those moments where you feel like all of your hard work has been worth it. All the annoyance of trying to get interviews, all the nights coming home after work to write and rewrite your story for hours. It is that “ah-ha” moment when you feel like you know what you are doing. Let me tell you, that is a great feeling of satisfaction.
