My last piece of journalism… ever?

Hi friends. Sorry I’ve been seriously amiss in blogging lately. Spring break and a week of hellish school work have kept me away, and I’m only here now for a brief shameless plug.

My time at Mizzou and the journalism school grows shorter. Only…

  • 33 days until I’m done with exams
  • 36 days until graduation
  • 47 days until I move to College Station.

That being said, my days of journalism are also drawing to a close. While I hope to use my journalism degree in my future career as a student affairs professional, I don’t necessarily foresee myself publishing many more stories. But I could be wrong; who knows?

Anyway, the point of this is that I wrote a story for Vox Magazine last semester that didn’t quite make it in to be considered timely. It was about slacklining, and by the time I finished the story, it was winter and too cold to slackline or have people read about slacklining. (Man this sounds awesome! I want to do this! I can’t wait to stand outside barefoot in the below-freezing temps during one of the five snow storms we’ll encounter in the next few months!)

Fast forward 5-6 months, and it finally went online a few days ago. It’s weird to think this might be my last ever piece of journalism, but I’m pretty happy with the story.


And now I shall return to my 6-to-8-page poli sci paper on FDR, my 3-to-4 page paper on journalism and consumerism and my 2-to-3-page paper on art of some sort. Kill me now. Or just pray for me.

  1. The hipsters at my school do this, too!
    I’d never known what it was called, but now I do, thanks to your article!
    I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Way to go out with a bang.

    p.s. Good luck on your papers. Blah.

  2. I agree; that is a good article. I’m pretty sure I saw people doing this back when I was in college, and I had no idea what it was, but that happened around campus often enough that I didn’t think much of it. 🙂
