I temporarily left my duties as a high school sports writer for the first week of September to help the Charlotte Observer cover the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.
It was crazy and fun. Some might even say it was crazy fun. But more than anything, it was a lot of work.
I'm not going to even pretend I did as much as some of my colleagues, but I was still amazed at what I accomplished in five days. So I decided to write it down.
Here, in Storify form, is what I did during the DNC.
(Warning: It is really freakin' long.)
