Musings and Mumblings
The inner monologue of Kiley Fischer
Categories: Musings, Sports Writing

I am! What’s that? You think I’m lying? You think I’m a ghost?

Come on, now. Would I do that to you?

But I know. I know. It’s been a while. A really long while. But here I am! So what am I doing you ask?

Pfffffffffffffffft. If I knew the answer to that I’d have the universe solved.

Okay, but no really. I have an answer, I swear.

So I worked in retail for a year and that was an adventure. A really big adventure.  A scary, get-kicked-in-the-face-and-yelled-at-over-UGG-boots-for-three-year-olds adventure. (Children’s shoe stores. Don’t do it. Save yourselves.) Basically it’s something that I’ll be grateful if I never have to do again because yikes.

I stopped at that store back over the summer (HALLELUJAH!) and started — EEEEEEEEE — writing for a newspaper. And – AND – it was even in the sports section!

know! I know, right?! It was a pretty rad feeling and I wrote some pretty awesome stories. I had this one about a woman who swam Lake Tahoe. Then there was one about a family that biked across the country. My personal favorite was about a Marine who came home to surprise his brother on senior night. Basically it’s been incredible and I’ve had an absolute blast doing it.

Oh and I take pictures, too, but if I try to show you those they’ll have watermarks all over them so you should just take my word for it.

ALTHOUGH I did take a pretty awesome one last night that’s in this article, but unfortunately the other one’s only in print soooo…one day. One day.

Oh, forget it. Here it is in all its watermarked glory.

So all that said – how you doin’?
