The world of work

It's week 2 of the placement and it's going well. I'm managing to find my own news stories by talking to people and making contacts, rather than pestering the news editor for things to do all the time, which is good. 
And - as if I hadn't learned this already from Canal Business - I'm realising that anything can be made interesting. This week I wrote the lead for the finance page (it's about VAT, which until yesterday I knew absolutely nothing about), and I actually enjoyed it. Oh dear, my flatmate was right when she said I'm turning into a proper saddo.
The PMA Hammersmith crew met up for lunch today, and it was really good to catch up with everybody. I do miss our daft, immature banter...
