Today is Aaron’s 25th birthday. I made him a great two-tier chocolate cake which I will attach a picture of. I gave him new 30% brighter low beam bulbs for his car, he wanted them for a while now and I thought it would be more practical to get him something like that then to waste money on another Nintendo DS game.
I have to write a story by Thursday, just a first draft, for the second edition of our newspaper the Troubadour. I remain kind of stuck as to my topic.. I have it there but I can’t quite write out what I have in my head, the words are just not forming the way I like. I feel like it’s going to be a ‘fluff’ piece, not really that newsy. Part of me really hates that. It’s just that there’s been so much stuff going on in my life here lately I can’t focus clearly on writing. It all comes with practice I guess (or at least hope).
Midterm exams start on the 14th, I have a video assignment due that week as well. Anyone have any ideas as to what a young person might find interesting here in Stephenville? No? didn’t think so. I’m having difficulties finding something to do, I guess that’s to be expected when there are 13 Journalists trying to feed on news that happens in a town of about 7000 people.
