Living the Dream of being Lois Lane
Last weekend, I got to cross something off of my reporter’s bucket list—being able to take photos at a fire scene.
It wasn’t real fire where someone lost their home. It was a controlled burn where a church donated a home for the fire department to burn.
It was a rainy day. I ended up soaked to the bone and ruined a pair of shoes but I would do it again in a heartbeat.
It was nice to learn about how fire fighters trained and learn the behind-the-scenes stuff.
Plus, I got to take some really cool photos.
I am really enjoying my new job. It will be a month on Friday. I hardly feel like a newbie.
There was no hand holding. It was really just here’s your desk, here’s your beat and now go to work.
Each day has been an adventure. But not as adventure filled as the controlled burn.
I have a few, fleeting moments of “did I make the right decision” but overall, it was worth uprooting my life.
My apartment is starting to look like an apartment instead of a depository for boxes. It looks pretty decent. Well at least until, I go back to RR to pick up more boxes.
I will try to take some photos over the weekend. Remember, I don’t have all of my furniture or stuff.
Yesterday, the weather was so nice that I opened the windows while I cleaned and listen to music. Last night, I went to bed with the window open in my bedroom. I figure if someone has the stones to climb into a second floor window, then there is really no safe place.
Sorry, I had a Criminal Minds moment for a second. I love my little apartment.
1. It is Friday!!!!

3. Will be taking photos at a Superhero 5K on Saturday!
