As everyone is back into the swing of things and kids are back to school normal routine will start to begin. That is something I will have to get used to. Transitioning from studying at university to full-time work has been somewhat interesting as I have been more restricted with the amount of spare time I have. I have realised routine and scheduling is important to fit everything I want to do in.
After studying Journalism for 3 years at Charles Sturt University Bathurst I am look- ing forward to putting all of what I have learnt into practice.
As I begin to settle into my new position here at the Phoenix it certainly feels like home.
Getting out and about, visiting the schools where I went, businesses I have worked at and seeing familiar faces are what make my job so great. Getting to talk to people on a regular basis is what I enjoy the most. Finding out new stories and interviewing different people about their experiences and challenges is what makes being a jour- nalist so rewarding.
So far I have attended Australia Day Awards, visited all of the schools, attended swimming carnivals, swimming pool fun days and sporting events. Being at these events and getting involved in the community is what is important to me and I would love to come along to any events you may have coming up.
I thank everybody for welcoming me with open arms and I look forward to what 2017 will bring.
