Avoiding the Heat, Taking a Seat
It was a high of 91° today, so I was really grateful that I got to sit at my desk and work all day. It’s going to take me a while to acclimate to the rising summer temperatures, but I’ll get it eventually. It’s just too hot in Southeast Texas.
I was busy first thing this morning with a few events to add to the Triangle Calendar. It didn’t take me very long, but afterwards I had to decipher the Letter to the Editor and type it up. It probably wouldn’t have been so hard to read if it wasn’t faxed, but I managed to figure it out. It was almost like a game of hangman, where I could only read a few letters and had to piece it together.
After my lunch break and getting to know some of my coworkers in the break room, I typed up a story on a student with perfect attendance. I also got to set up my new work bullet journal to keep me on track; it’s very color-coded, just the way I like it.
I got my first feature assignment for this week– an article about the Century Plant blossoming. I’m a little nervous about the interview, but at least I like plants.
I closed up my day with our weekly meeting about the upcoming magazine. It was a short, quick meeting, and I’m almost set to do my interview for the Why I Love the Triangle section. I’m excited to see how the magazine turns out.
