So Long, FarewellPosted Monday, May 17, 2010, at 10:33 AM
Auf wiedersehen, goodbye. And so the song goes. The song from Rodgers and Hammerstein's "The Sound of Music" that I used to torture my uncle with, by singing it over and over. And now, in all sincerity, it is time for me to say those words to you, loyal readers.
I have enjoyed my year and a half at The Marshall Democrat-News, and I have learned a lot -- not just about journalism, but also about myself and small towns and more. Now, however, it is time for me to move on. I have accepted a position teaching English with the Chatteris Educational Foundation in Hong Kong, and I am very excited to set off on another adventure and explore the world.
I would like to thank everyone for reading my blog and paying attention to my thoughts and opinions. I must also thank all my sources and journalistic subjects, who, for the most part, have been wonderfully cooperative in our working relations. I wish every Saline Countian only the very best for the future.
Perhaps I will return to Marshall someday, but for now I bid you adieu. From time to time, I may add new entries to this blog, describing my international experiences. But, you can also follow my foreign journey on a new as-yet unnamed blog, which will be linked to my current one: http://sydneysjoyofeating.blogspot.com.

Something about music. Something about small towns. Something about Hong Kong. Or maybe something else entirely.
