Deadlines and nap times

By Renan Meira (Queens, NY)

As SJP moves towards its final moments, I can feel a change in the mood of the newsroom. The tensions have risen as one of the most well-known monsters of journalism approaches: the deadline. Even though the effects of sleep deprivation are hard to beat, everybody has been working hard to get everything done on time and to prove how talented the SJP class of 2012 is.

Besides all the writing we still have to be ready to absorb the most information possible from all of our amazing guest speakers. To do so, a nap during our five minute breaks come in handy.

But I’m pretty sure that every minute of every hour will feel worthwhile once we get our hands on the final product of our work: The Princeton Summer Journal.

There is no better feeling than the gratitude you feel when you finish an endeavor, and I can’t wait for that moment to come.

Good luck, SJP’ers.
