This afternoon, DTH editors met back in the office after a week of frantic texting, Slack messages and calling for story ideas and editing. If you had asked me two weeks ago if I wanted a week-long break from being in the office, I would’ve climbed to the closest rooftop and shouted “YES!”
But today, I was relieved.
I was relieved to see everyone come back into the office — I felt the reunion of my sleep-deprived, weird family. I was relieved to fully know everyone was safe and get confirmation that their families were okay.
It was nice to hear about their lives for the last week and hear about how they weathered the hurricane. I’m glad to be back.
