Last night, aside from proofing the papers, I wrote my first headline and did a partial layout of the entertainment page. I'm not sure, but I think I'm picking up on this stuff pretty quickly. Also, one of the maintenance workers speaks Moroccan Arabic, so I am able to talk to him a little bit. Maybe I'll pick something up. There are a couple area music festivals, one local and one in Bangor. I can't get to them though because I don't have a car. Best to start slowly I've learned- the (not too) hard way.
