What time on the 15th is it due?

I think I'll be submitting my article at the very last minute of the very last hour of the very last day.

Things are well. My article is proving to be more challenging than I anticipated. Ms. Glickstein's wealth of information is so vast that the interview covered more topics than I anticipated. I think I was also unclear as to how to do the assignment. I focused more on an issue (human trafficking) and less on a profile of the activist. Now I'm going to follow-up with another quick phone interview to fill in the holes to do an adequate profile.

This process has also taught me that I need to ask more direct questions and follow-up with other questions to get the details I need. It was a bit painful but this process is teaching me a lot.

I can't thank you enough for matching me up with Leigh. She just shared her intention letter with me and Grace and it couldn't be more perfect in complementing my own goals. She gets me energized and gives me the encouragement I need to KNOW I can do it. I was also totally blocked for a while with this first assignment and she really helped me get out of it. My article will be submitted at the last minute, no doubt, but I think it's going to be a great article.
