“On the spot: Jason Barrera, pre-journalism freshman”

Mike Christy

You’re a journalism major? Do you have class in 30 minutes?

Yeah.

Is it Cuiller’s class?

Yeah.

I’m in the same class.

Oh, okay. Cool.

So how’s that reporting assignment going?

I haven’t started it yet.

Did you e-mail the guy?

No, I haven’t even started.

I e-mailed the guy like three days ago, but he hasn’t given me a call back.

Have you done your “”Listening”” thing?

…No…

Yeah, it’s due Thursday so…

Maybe he won’t read this.

We’ll see.

Are you going into “”sports”” journalism or “”journalism”” journalism?

Yeah, right now I actually write for GoAZCats.com, which is in association with Rivals.com on Yahoo. So, probably sports journalism, yeah.

It’s a nice day today.

Yeah.

Is it too hot for you? Do you think it’s getting too hot, too early?

Um, I’m not from around here, so when I came for orientation it was really hot. During the winter, it cooled off, but I still thought it was hot. I never thought it really cooled off at all.
