The times I showed initiative this year was when I picked up the pace when others couldn't. I covered a play at Ventura High School on a Thursday night, staying at the school until late at night to get my quotes, and had to write it after school on an iPad as I drove to Northern California to visit family. It was hard to write an article in a car with my family, but it was my job as editor to take the initiative when no one else was available, even if it wasn't an easy task. I also often took on editing jobs that were neglected, forgotten, or had no one available to work on them in the Fashoin section.
