This Camera Is For Real

she said as she fervidly exhibited her satisfaction with the summer employment program.
That's right, Tisdale's own Erin Tarala is in a position of power!
Yeah, I know I found it frightening too, until I confronted my fears and faced it
head on. I realized there was nothing to fear.
We met with Erin and she was very excited to see us, me a little more so than Wes.
But she was fun to talk to and said she would even help me to find a job. She is
very informed with the goings on in Tisdale, she explained to me a great many things
in our short time. Among the revelations were, allot about cameras, that is if something
is illegal to display, display it, because it looks nice. In her exact words "I
leave them there because they look nice", she also explained to me that there
is a whole week dedicated to Summer Employment, a whole week! I only have one day

I caught Erin off guard when I asked her how I could get her job, she replied "I'm
not quite sure", I was a little surprised to find out that a person who helps
other people find a job doesn't really know how she got hers.
Erin was happy to see Wes and myself arrive, but was even happier when we left, I
didn't want to, but she bribed me with an undisclosed amount of free gifts, I asked
if it was a bribe, she acknowledged that it was, and that she was guilt free,
What did you do, you ask, as a budding journalist? Well I did what any good Samaritan
would do. That's right, I took the gifts and left, because Erin said if she had to
look at me for another second she was going to jump out the window, and she's a really
nice lady, so I didn't want her to do that. So I ran away before she could throw
