Pass Herald Reporter
This year has absolutely flown by for me.

If feels like I’ve been living and working in the Pass for just a few short months but as I look at my hard drive, it says I’ve written stories for 47 editions of the Pass Herald this year!

I was nervous when I first moved to the Pass.

I knew enough about the area but it was still slightly nerve wracking that I would be living on my own for the first time and would need to make some adjustments in my life.

My nerves quickly went away after the first few weeks on the job because not only is Lisa probably the best boss in the Pass but also everyone I talked to was extremely polite.

There’s a certain vibe in the Pass that just screams friendly.

Everyone I’ve talked to this year, Thank you for making me feel right at home so quickly.

I look back on experiences as well.

The first time someone had asked if I was going to the skijoring event I thought they swore at me in another language.

Then I went and learned a little bit more about this community.
You guys know how to have fun.

Another thing I’ve marveled at over this past year is just how involved the community is in putting on different events throughout the year.

The number of volunteers I’ve spoken with for certain events is amazing to see.

There are just so many people willing to give of their time and money in the community and it’s a major part of why this area is so special.

I’ve gotten more and more comfortable and familiar with the area over this year and I am so glad that I chose to take the leap, however minor it seemed at the time, to be the next reporter for the Pass Herald.

As each day progresses, it’s becoming more and more difficult to see me leaving this place anytime soon.

With everything the Pass has to offer, I’d probably be a fool to leave.
