My week included: a sick kid...a visiting ma-in-law...shopping & dining (which happens when the ma-in-law visits)... Superbowl parties, complete with hollering, high-fives & the occasional chest bump...a wee feature in blanket magazine (YAY!)...& snow! (Finally! I've been wanting it to snow. It's so much prettier that way.)
OH!! Do you finally want to know my little piece of exciting news? I have an opportunity to work at the local newspaper! Last Monday l played like Cinderella & stayed up past midnight. I drank diet Dr. Pepper (an attempt at staying awake & retaining some form of sanity) & got to hang out with lovely newspapery peeps while learning new computer programs & piecing together pictures & captions & stories like a puzzle for the weekly newspaper. That'll be my playground every Monday night. But it gets better: I'll be able to use a much more grown up camera than my point-n-shoot & help photograph school activities, sports, events & who knows what else!! Can you stand it? That's not even my most favoritest part. Well, ok, it's tied for favorite: I was offered the chance to write my own weekly column, with topics of my choice!!! Is that insanely awesome or what?!?!?! I have been bouncin' off the walls since being offered all this candy last week.
The newspaper, the Bridgeport News-Blade, is published every Wednesday. And when my first column is published, I'll let you know.
I'd love to hear your thoughts about what I could call my column or ideas about what to write about. (I'm pretty sure I'll get my own little picture next to my column too-- you know, like they do?) I'm thinking of having the things I write about be really random--just my thoughts on certain topics, so I am not confined to a constant theme. At first I thought it would be fun (& hopefully funny?) to talk about the small-town stuff I find so amusing. (With respect, of course.) But then what? I could really include anything & everything. So maybe that's too broad. Maybe I do need a theme to contain my randonimity. Hmmm. I think I need to do some investigative research...
