Me, A Day In The Life Of (Fourth Edition)
today, september 15, 2010, is my last day as a news reporter.
over two years in the media has made me stronger and more outspoken and has given me a newfound appreciation for the news.
i have met so many people in those two years. from senators, congressmen, justices and all the government officials and businessmen who matter…to the average joe: the farmer, the market vendor, the bus driver. i cannot even begin to count the number of interviews i have done, the myriad of press conferences i’ve attended and the hundreds of stories i have put together.
the events i have been a part of – whether of national importance or not – are things i will take with me until i grow old, until i have kids to whom i can say: i was there. i was part of something great.
the people i have worked with will remain treasures in my life, whether i see them again or not, because in one way or another they have made me who i am today.
to say that i will miss this job is an understatement; right now i am heartbroken beyond words.
but as they say, with every end is a new beginning, and i am excited to find out what the future holds for me. wish me luck.
