“Ladies and gentlemen, this is your Captain speaking. My name is Gill Rennie. On behalf of the crew I would like to welcome you aboard to flight Writing and Editing 3, for the second semester.”
Boarding this flight at the beginning of the semester, I had so many worries and expectations about the journey ahead. Would Captain Gill take us through a swift flight or would there be turbulence like the first semester flight? Would connection flight Grocott’s Mail be waiting at the next stop for us? Would I have to acquaint myself with the nearest exits for this flight? Who was I kidding; there were no exits this far into the Rhodes University journalism journey. I had made it this far, so I would just have to acquaint myself with the bracing position instead; get on my knees and pray when the going got tough. Nonetheless, I had so many questions and I needed answers quickly for my own safety!
