Not Enough Hours In The Day...

My weeks have been pretty crazy lately. Last week at CBS, the intern supervisor asked me to help them out at the assignment desk and with producing on Sunday nights (it's been tough for them lately with budget cuts, and I figured it would be a great way for me to get some experience in other parts of the newsroom, not just reporting). I had my first day yesterday, and I enjoyed the experience, as I always do when I'm at the station. I never let myself forget about the fact that I'm extremely blessed to be interning at such a great station with great people who have a tangible passion for what they do.

But it seems like my weekends have been getting shorter lately... I'd love a day off, but it comes down to deciding between taking paid hours off of work, or taking away valuable experience.

Please pray for me and for God to help me stay focused on the larger goal, which is, of course, a possible job at the station, and in the future, a successful career as a reporter. I'm remembering this passage to help me get through:

"Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us."
-- Romans 5:3-5

Girl, I imagine it must be tough trying to balance everything. Don't worry, you WILL get through it and that verse is so right. You are going to develop a lot of great skills from this experience.
I'll be praying for you, girly.
