When I was growing up, I always had a long list of things I wanted for Christmas. I’d start mentioning gifts I wanted in October, hoping that the news would make its way to Santa. When I got older, it didn’t stop. It may have gotten worse.
Getting a gym membership can be a daunting task, let me tell you. That’s why I put it off for two years. Once I got up the courage, it really wasn’t that scary. The sports and recreation director gave us a tour of the facility, told us all about the equipment and classes, etc. and asked us if we had any questions. I felt like VIP status as he showed us around.
After taking this job, I realized there’s a lot more in Stark County than I realized. Back in January of 2014 when I started this gig, I’ll admit I was unfamiliar with most of the county, other than the little corner I called home.
At the time I was writing this, I was planning my vacation to South Carolina. I usually prefer to have every minute of a trip planned out so that no time is wasted. I requested travel guides months in advance and started thinking about what I would want to do. It was all-consuming.
Putting together the March issue is always one of my favorites. We start working on it in January, you know, when the ground is covered in snow—or puddles of rain, as it was this year. Since the weather is dreary, it’s so much fun to look forward to the fashions that will be popping up in the coming warmer months.
