At 9:20 this morning when I was brushing my teeth my roommate Abby said, “good morning” while she was standing in the doorway of my bathroom.  Abby looked like she just woke up because her hair was a mess, she was in pajama shorts and a sports bra. I looked at her in the mirror and I said “good morning.” After Abby walked away to go get ready for her day my other roommate, Tiffany came to the doorway of my bathroom looking comfy with sweatpants and a sweatshirt on with her bag on her back ready to leave. Tiffany said “goodbye” while she was walking away when I had  mouth wash in my mouth, I waved at her signaling goodbye. When I was done rinsing I shouted “have a good day” to Tiffany as she was walking out the door.

Ellen Degeneres is a very blessed, successful woman. With her own talk show, Ellen DeGeneres is one of America’s most well-known comedians, also serving as a prominent gay/lesbian role model.

I chose Ellen Degeneres because I never knew how she got where she is and I never hear anything bad about her so I wanted to know more about her and her background.

California Fires have killed 44 people with discovery of 13 more bodies. Ally Pierce is a survivor that was trapped by the fire and thought his life was over. Ally made a goodbye video to his family saying his goodbyes. After he was saying his goodbyes a bulldozer knocked the burning car out of Ally’s way giving him enough room to escape. New York Times did a very good job writing this story reeling the audience in emotionally. It had a good anecdote.

Katie also works in the Marketing Department at Morningside College.  In the Marketing Department Katie is responsible to guide eight interns. Katie says “Im in charge of making sure people are staying on task to get the project that is assigned done.”

Being responsible for Katie means that being late is not an option. “I hate being late” Katie said. She has to stay on time with her busy schedule while double majoring in Mass communication and Non- Profit Management.

In this story it talks about how Ian David  was the gunman who shot over 12 people at Thousands Oaks in California. Ian David was 28 years old and served in the marine corps. This story was organized very good. It didn’t give too much information about what happened right away. They didn’t tell who the suspect was till the second paragraph. Which pulled me in to read more. Later on in the story I really liked how they described when they were talking to the sheriff how is voice was cracking when he was talking to the reporter. When they described the sheriff’s voice it was like I could actually hear his voice cracking when reading the qoute.

Also its lead was very eye catching because it said something about cancer- linked herbicide has been found in dozens of cereal and cereal bars.
