Today I’m writing about entrepreneurs. When looking for someone in the photo archives I discovered that these startup guys like to talk with their hands. Every photo of every entrepreneur I found included a funny/awkward hand gesture like this one.
A Boulder nutritionist talks about how your diet can improve your brain function and memory. (Staring at my grande caramel brulee latte and remembering how she said a few ounces of caffeine at a time is enough. Oops.)
Our photog is snapping some pictures of Jeff, who works at #boulder Bridge House. Jeff is performing at a concert Monday in the UMC to benefit the day shelter. (at Boulder Bridge House)
Silly me, I went searching for #Boulder #Freeride students before noon on a Friday. What was I thinking. (at Boulder Freeride)

I need a secondary source for my story tomorrow. It’s a nutritionist. I’m in Boulder. Seven hours, 8 emails and 10 voice messages later and I’m not feeling great about the deadline…. LIFE IS HARD TODAY!
As a journalist, fires are typical. Part of the job, especially here in Boulder.
It’s not unusual this time of year to get called in to help with fire coverage.
As I looked at these photos from the Denver Post, I was touched by the photos of people moving things out of their homes. I couldn’t help but think about how heartbroken I would be if I had to grab my favorite things and run, and I don’t even own my home.
As a human, it’s normal to watch these images and feel my heart sink into my chest but as a journalist…. well that’s just not how this job works.
Luckily, I’m not covering the fire so it’s not an issue this time but it got me thinking about how often my feelings get in the way or cloud my judgement or cause bias in my writing, no matter how hard I fight it.
So to all those journalists who are trying to balance their damn feelings with their story, kudos and keep up the good work!

I’ll spare you the details of how I came across this video, but I will say, you won’t want to miss Jenn Field’s story on Coloradodaily.com tomorrow.
Journalism, like any other job, has it’s good days and bad. I like to think the reporters covering the camel jumping competition in Yemen were having a good day.
So far, I’ve been python hunting (see the photo below), seen President Obama speak, gone on a sunset cruise and rode on a 10-foot-tall swamp buggy through an 800-acre mud hole, all in the name of journalism.
It’s these adventures and the ones still to come that keep me in good spirits on days like today when I’m writing about CU-Boulder student who has leukemia.
