I don’t even know if I should be admitting this, but I am so excited to have a birthday issue of the newspaper.
That’s right, it is my born day today. In all of the years I have been in print journalism, I have never had an issue come out on my birthday, which is definitely something to celebrate.
Now that I am past the grand age of 25, which was the year of my quarter life crisis, I suppose I should start acting my age and take better care of myself – cue Tui advert right here. But I guess it’s the thought that counts.
This weekend is Relay for Life, and as usual, I have left trying to find my outfit to the last minute.
Our team is dressing up as social media icons, such as Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat.
I have been given Instagram—I don’t even really know how to use the app, so who knows how I am going to dress up as it.
My best friend Kaitlin has said that I have to wear a tutu and find a top with the icon on it . I am not sure if she realises this but Emma and a tutu really don’t mix.
Then she tells me that her and I are doing the night shift at the event, and also competing in the tug of war. But wait, it gets better! Straight after finishing Relay on Sunday, we are then going to play our first football game of the season. Seriously, I think she is trying to break me. A girl my age is really going to struggle to keep up!
Relay for Life is a fantastic event, raising funds for the Cancer Society, and I encourage the community to come and support it. With the creative people that we have in our community, I have no doubt that there are going to be some amazing costumes on display.
It is being held at the Franklin A&P showgrounds, with the opening ceremony beginning at 4pm.
I will more than likely be behind the camera lense, so please do not be shy to ask for a photo!
