Despite several tries, I’ve never been able to keep beta fish alive. I once changed the name of one red and turquoise Siamese fighting fish to The Bride because after two days of it floating belly up, it suddenly came back to life. (Kill Bill: Vol 1 & 2 are also my favourite movies). Eventually, this one’s replacement was aptly named The Revenge of the Bride. Since then I’ve strayed away from anything that requires a healthy amount of supervision — plants, pets, car payments, and light baking — until now. As an Online Editor for Highline Magazine, it’ll be part of my responsibility to take care of the blog and even though I’ll have to set timers to remind myself to feed it and take it out for a walk, this is an opportunity I’m really excited about. Highline Magazine is a literary gem of the Bow Valley and has a voice that connects to the two-legged, coffee drinking, social media savvy wildlife around here. I’m looking forward to being a part of this crew, as well as reading blog entries and meeting fellow Highline enthusiasts, so don’t hesitate to shoot me an email or an invite to meet up for chai lattes at Wild Flour. Any tips for how to keep tiny aquatic creatures breathing are also welcome.
