Last Late Night

Well, folks, it's a wrap.

It's hard to believe it's been a year, but I just finished up my last production night at The Asbury Collegian. And while I certainly won't miss working into the wee hours of Wednesday morning every week, the end was bittersweet.

Working on The Collegian has helped make junior year my favorite so far. From the marathon redesign week to the exhausting production nights to that glorious moment each Thursday when the new issue hits the stands, I have loved being on staff. I've learned about everything from design to writing to photography, and I've been blessed to build friendships with my fellow staff members along the way.

I wanted to throw in the towel at so many points throughout the year. Early on, I wasn't sure I was up to the job, and even after we launched the redesign, I didn't know if we'd be able to carry it on. But I've become emotionally invested in the paper, and I'm so proud of the work we've all done this year.

Though I won't be on staff next year, I'll be following The Collegian closely. I expect great things to come for this program.

Jet-Setting

You guys... I just bought my first plane ticket.

That's right, this girl is London-bound.

Oh, and it'll be during a little event called the Olympics. And oh yeah, I'll be reporting while I'm there. Like a real journalist. One who knows how to use fragments effectively.

Nbd (except ... kind of a big d.)
