Blink. Two weeks have gone by.
The holiday weekend ruined my journalistic efforts. My boss was out of the office — unplugged — for two weeks. One could say I was a bit helpless.
First, there were no fireworks stands in Grand Junction. I blame that on the fire ban. I took my vacation early.
When I came back to the office, news had extended its vacation. I blame that on Grand Junction.
I developed a few stories, and kept some for desperate days.
That week, I became distracted by a visitor — my boyfriend — that came to venture Junction. Somehow, I was able to work through distraction. I met a stellar lady, who started a wonderful organization.
Then, the fair came to Mesa County. I spent three days creating a video for the web. I spoke with a wolf “trainer.” I waved to the wolves. It was humid in Grand Junction. That was a first…
And here, I am in my final week of my internship.
Blink. Two months have gone by.
