At Walter Cronkite, everyone that hopes to graduate is required to take an intermediate journalism course. In this, we have to write an enterprise story which is basically finding a problem in the community and researching the efforts to fix it. Somehow, without even owning a cat in my recent years, I got roped into writing about the stray cats in Arizona’s Maricopa County. I hope everyone enjoys my extensive research and tries to help out the kitties in their community, because they are just as important as dogs.
When I was in one of my physical therapy appointments a few weeks ago I over heard a woman talking about Game of Thrones. Everyone talks about Game of Thrones right? It’s kind of like a universal similarity for everyone. Then I hear the name Gabaldon and my attention piqued. Diana Gabaldon is one of my favorite authors. The mastermind behind the lengthy novels I spend so much of my time reading. There was no way this woman was talking about Outlander. Then she mentioned Jaime and I knew.
Sean and I have developed a serious wander-lust as of late. Meaning this was the year for tons of weddings. Meaning this was the year we spent a ton of money going places we normally wouldn’t have thought of going. New York was always a possibility, but the impossibly small town of Ridgway, Colorado? Who would have even known that existed. This story is long over due, considering we made this adventure in June, but Spanish class somehow always gets in the way of my getting personal writing done.
