How exciting to be writing my first blog as an Editorial Assistant, instead of an Intern. It's been a fun couple months here at Lethbridge living, adjusting to life in the working world. I've moved into an actual office, with my very own desk and chair, and I don't have any homework. All in all, I'd say no longer being a full-time student is growing on me.

Over the last month or so it's been fairly slow in the office. Our May/June issue came out the second week of May, which meant getting a start on my new stories for the July/August issue.

I love the look of pleasant surprise or fascination when I talk about my articles with coworkers, friends and family, who never knew the topics I am writing about existed. I am often naively astonished when our Managing Editor, Jenn, sends me my next assignment and I learn about a new program, event, club or lifestyle I never knew about in our community. There’s a never-ending supply of intriguing subject matter in Southern Alberta, and it never ceases to amaze me that there’s always something new happening.
