De­light and de­spair not black and white

Shepparton News - - WEEKEND WHAT WE LOVE -

As you know, I’m a Dees sup­porter. So I have never even had the chance to have the same ex­pe­ri­ence as Rod­ney Woods did a few weeks ago. The Coun­try News journalist headed to Mel­bourne to watch his Årst-ever grand Ånal in the AEesh, but it was met with some pretty difÅcult emo­tions. As a Pies sup­porter, Rod ex­pe­ri­enced the in­cred­i­ble elated feel­ings lead­ing up to the day, with Colling­wood un­ex­pect­edly tak­ing out the Tigers to progress to the big dance. He ex­cit­edly wore his Colling­wood jumper to work in the week be­fore the match and jumped for joy when he found out he had been suc­cess­ful in get­ting a ticket. As soon as the Pies went down I sent my con­do­lences to Rod, know­ing he was at the match feel­ing pretty dev­as­tated. But re­gard­less of the re­sult, the whole ex­pe­ri­ence has made for one great story and Rod has shared what hap­pened on that fate­ful day with read­ers this week. We also hear from reg­u­lar stu­dent con­trib­u­tors Mad­di­son How­ell and Lau­ren Formica. Mad­di­son un­packs the beneÅts of liv­ing in the coun­try while Lau­ren grap­ples with some difÅcult Åt­ness goals. Our beauty col­umn this week is one I will very much take on board, with GOTAFE hair­dress­ing trainer Cath Fox giv­ing her tips on how to tame your frizz. We also hear from Rod’s fel­low Coun­try News col­league Alana Chris­tensen, who re­views NetAEix com­edy The Good Place. En­joy! — Tara Whitsed
