My memory might be failing me, but this might be the first time I have taken photos on assignment for six of seven days. There was the Brittney Hamm story (← over there) on Monday and Against Me! (←← over there) on Sunday, but over the last few days I shot the women's swim team victory in the Big Ten Championships, went into the trapeze stage with Bernadette Pace, walked though Bradford Woods for an environmental portrait of Erik Ludwig (while Kayleen Cohen interviewed him) and watched a 70-64 IU loss to Northwestern.

(Now that I think about it, this happened a few times when I was photo editor last semester. I just didn't have a blog then to record it.)
