This makes my stomach churn

http://www.newson6.com/story/18931819/one-person-dies-in-east-tulsa-trailer-fire

I know I did not cover the story myself, but it still tugs at my heart. You would think that since I have been in this field for a while that stuff like this would not bother me so bady. There are some stories that just make your stomach churn. I have a feeling that the fire was not accidental. There has been other incidents here in Tulsa, where the facts do not add up. My co-workers believe that the record-breaking heat has something to do with all of this craziness. Maybe they are right, heat exhaustion will make you do not so normal things.

Since the 4th is a few days away, I am hoping that I can get away and enjoy myself without hearing about more Oklahoman’s dying or getting injured.  I love my job, but I would love to be able to enjoy a holiday without having to cover a gruesome story as soon as I return to work. To me, it seems like there is always horrible things happening in Oklahoma all of a sudden. My co-workers keep on telling me that I am becoming jaded. I guess they are right. Hopefully being off of work for the next couple of days will do me some good.

Since I will not be at a computer on the 4th, I want to wish everyone who reads this, or stumbles across this a Happy 4th of July!!!!  Although those pretty fire works are awesome, remember what the real meaning is behind the 4th. I hope everyone is able to spend some much-needed quality time with their loved ones, and friends! lastly, Do not forget to be safe this 4th of July! 

Introduction ladies and gentlemen.

If you have stumbled across this blog, you are probably wondering where my introduction is at. I guess I was too excited to display the newspaper article I wrote for The Daily OK to even think about an introduction.

My name is Abby Sky, I am a journalist for The Daily OK. I love my job, I would not trade it for anything in this world. I love being able to cover the different variety of stories. However, the article I wrote for today’s paper did leave a bad taste in my mouth.

I am currently living in Oklahoma. I usually get catch a lot of shit being from Oklahoma. Apparently people in other states still think that Oklahoma is still full of nothing but cowboys and Indians. Also, many people have a strong bias against Oklahomans. Not everybody from Oklahoma is a backwards, hillbilly meth addict.

I decided to start a blog to help memorialize my career as a journalist. I also want to be able to share all of my milestones as a journalist with the world.  I want people to be able to see the world through Abby Sky’s eyes.
