Another day at the office

I really, really enjoyed my day at work today. I don't really know what else to say. Tomorrow is my first production day, so I'll learn how to use In-Design to lay out a few pages. I'm also kind of excited because a story that I wrote about floods and high rivers is running as our cover story...yay! It's not the best story I've ever written, but I guess it's going to have to do. I'm actually more excited about another story that I'm working on about bush-parties and the impact they have on underagers and the environment. I also like my job because I really love seeing the results of my efforts, and working for a weekly paper where I'm involved in everything from researching, writing, taking pictures and editing, to the actual production of the paper -- and then seeing it all on Thursday when the paper hits the stand -- will surely prove to be a rewarding experience. I'm really encouraged right now to know that wherever my career ends up, I'm enjoying every early step of my professional journey :).

Yeah Tree! What font do you guys typeset in? Caslon like books and stuff? My adventures in typography are becoming more exciting and more rewarding these days. I love them like the art that they are. It's a bit crazy how you can find self-realization through typography.. but such is the magical mysteries of life.

Anyways, I'm super proud that you're doing Yoga and jazz like that and considering making a life for yourself in a place that you love! Also, I appreciated the reflection on the apparent need to speed things up rather than taking in life every chance you get. I suffer/benefit from this as well..I'll be thinking about that :)
