Guest column


Thank you, Lake Orion!

July 27, 2011 - It seems it was just last week when I sat down to write my introduction column -- my obit, as they called it --although, it has actually been two and a half months. How the time flies when you're having fun!

Over the course of this internship, I have learned many valuable lessons and have been put to the test multiple times. I have been taught things the hard way, which I can guarantee I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I have learned that journalism invites procrastination, and meeting deadlines last minute is more stressful than jumping out of a plane. (I imagine they're pretty close).

I have been extremely blessed to have had such a humorous, laid-back boss (Don Rush), a talented co-reporter to look up to (Gabe Ouzounian), as well as the receptionist at the good ol' Lake Orion Review office who constantly helped me with any questions I had (Jody Osborn). These people are really one-of-a-kind people. And they put a lot of effort into creating the best paper they can for this community each week.

I also want to thank the people who took the time to talk with me and make this experience as enlightening as possible. When I go back to school to continue my studies, I will not forget the kind personalities, as well as the intricate ones that I have met and learned from.

Finally, I wanted to give a big thank you to the Lake Orion community. To those of you who read my articles each week and/or sent kind words about my work, your support is greatly appreciated. To those of you who didn't necessarily care for my stuff, one day in a few years I hope you come across my writing, wherever it may be published, and see that it has improved- as I know it will.

Until then, take care Lake Orion, I'll be talking to you later.
