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.
