But, there are times when things just go right."
These are the words of a man who tweets (what you do with Twitter) from his tractor using his blackberry. He has a 4,000 acre farm in Nebraska, he's a God fearin' man, and he uses twitter. For that CNN used him in an article Twittering from the Tractor.
I was 3 for 3 this week. Yep, 3 stories, 3 front pages. But, it's not all glory and crowns. My last two stories were cut for length and I was much displeased. They generally cut from the bottom of an article up, so it feels like I don't know how to end an article....Or important quotes are cropped out. Oh well. I just spent the afternoon popping out another story for Monday's metro page (we were seriously lacking in stories), and am working on an Iran piece tomorrow. Did you know that BYU has a room on campus that Muslims can use for prayers, kind of like a mosque? True story....
And finally, I was able to take THE briefest of trips home last weekend and I saw this one very much missed lady. Here we be, both stunningly single...per usual. At least for me (the single part that is). Apparently (as shown by this photo) my friendship is a burden. Ha. She loves it.
And that is all, because for the last hour I should've been working on my first writing assignment for my media ethics class. An assignment that is due in 24 short hours. Adieu.
