Covering News Stories: There have been times where everyone in the news section have not been able to cover an event, and that's when I've gotten the chance to do it. Everyone in the news section, and in the Arts and Entertainment section were either going to prom, or they were buys. I took initiative and took on the event. A similar situation occurred on the night of the annual Festival of Talent, I didn't plan on going but I knew it had to be covered. I took on two articles that weren't for my section because I knew, that it was needed to help maintain the level of efficiency we work with.
Food Trucks: I was told to write a restaurant review for my first article, when I was thinking about new restaurants in town, I had remembered seeing a food truck. I thought that this would make for a much more interesting article than the usual restaurant review. This article took a bit more work than a typical restaurant review, unlike most restaurants, this one is mobile. I had to track down where the truck would be at what time, the first day I went out to find the truck I was too late. I ended up having to wait until the next day when I knew exactly where and when the food truck was at the location. This article took some out of the box thinking, and required more work than usual, but in the end it was all worth it to have the article published.
