Not just another Saturday night on the couch

When you are a reporter, your schedule really isn't your schedule. It depends on what is happening. This was my weekend to work and I had to cover a professional wrestling event. I am tired today but I actually had a good time Saturday night.

Plus, they gave me a lanyard tag that allowed me to go anywhere in the theatre. If  I had wanted, I could have gotten in the ring. I felt all powerful with my camera and notebook. But seriously, I had a good time. It was TNA wrestling. I don't know a thing about wrestling or who is popular right now but I enjoyed the energy of the crowd and the fans. 

For the first time in weeks, I remembered why I like writing so much--the chance to tell someone else's story. I met some really cool people who had been looking forward to this event for weeks. I met a 10-year-old who had received tickets for his birthday. He was waiting patiently to  meet his idol Jeff Hardy for a few seconds. I felt honored to be able to share his story with the RValley.

I had a great time last night. And I looked all badassish in my combat boots, green cargos and tough girl hoodie. I felt fantastic. 

The countdown is now in its final days. Three more days until vacation and time with JJ. I can hardly wait!!!!

DAILY DOSE

1. Being a reporter!

2. Looking stylish in my combat boots that I paid $5 from a yard sale!

3. Being able to see my son at the end of this week!
