Last week I received an e-mail requesting volunteers for our community newspaper.
I volunteered to help in any capacity. Imagine my surprise when I received a call from our editor saying that she felt that I was already a reporter for the paper. I've written several articles, covering either my travels or events of my singles group. The articles have been very sporadic, usually whenever the mood hits me.
Now that I know that I'm a member of the staff, I have to be more consistent with my articles. I think I'll push for a column devoted to the activities of the singles. I'll call it, "On Our Own". I dislike being called "single", it sounds so lonely, I prefer "on my own", or even independent.
