(32) 2008

What would life be like if I could do what I love and get paid for it? 

I love to travel, and I love documentaries, so how wonderful would it be if I could work for our network's travel shows, and maybe one day produce my own travel documentaries?!! 

The one skill I obviously lack is video editing. But looking across the newsroom, I'm surrounded by so many talented, creative, and generous editors who are the best mentors one can ask for. Patient ones too as they're always happy to share their precious knowledge with clueless novices like me.

One side is willing to teach. One side is eager to learn. I am in safe hands. 

So, this will be the year for me to learn to be a good video editor. 

This will be the year for me to prepare for a future tailor-made for me.
