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.
