The past few months have been consumed by laborious paper writing, publishing a weekly newspaper 10 times over, burning bridges, making connections, traveling, conferences, too much beer, turning 21 (finally), and desperately trying to fill the void in my “no-college-for-three-months” life.
During finals week I swore to myself that I would start this blog back up ASAP, because I miss writing for myself and writing about what I love. Unfortunately, the past few weeks have been filled with more Netflix and knitting than blogging and it has taken me a while to get back in the saddle. But I’m here now, and I will be here every week this summer.
Whiskey kiss is BACK y’all, and its going to be better than ever.
Between writing for Rip City Review, having a cool communications internship, working on campus as a PR babe, and living my life to the fullest, we’re going to have lots of fun.
What can you look forward to? Well, I’m headed off to see Father John Misty soon, and I am excited. Fear Fun has been stuck in my head for a year, and Josh Tillman is the most talented performer I’ve seen in a while. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to it. You can look for a review here tomorrow, and one on Rip City Review soon, too!
For now, check out this video that I listen to whenever I’m feeling sad, gooey, or hyped for an FJM concert.
And thanks for having faith in me. This little dream of mine won’t die, and you following my ramblings makes it all worth while!
Tonight marked the unofficial re-beginning of my life. As you may or may not know, I live, breathe, and bleed the Lewis & Clark student-run newspaper. The Pioneer Log is my baby, my pride and joy, and the thing that gets me through the week every single week. Maybe it’s creepy the extent that I enjoy my job, but I like to think my passion for this sort of thing is a good sign.
Tonight was our first layout, and it was an amazing success. My good friend and long-time co-section editor Hayley and I have a really great staff, who are, although somewhat inexperienced, have a lot of enthusiasm and energy about what they are doing.
The cover that I am posting marks a change in the appearance of The Pioneer Log. We haven’t undergone a complete re-design, but we wanted to format our paper more as a news magazine, and we drew inspiration from some alternative newsweeklies in Portland and Seattle.
Sophomore Kelsey Gray did the cover art for us, and I think it is fantastic. I hope that you all enjoy our first issue this week! It’ll be on stands Friday at 9am.
If you aren’t around to get a physical copy, you can read the articles online at http://piolog.com, and soon they’ll be up on Issuu, once I get that figured out.
Cheers friends! Here’s to the up and up!
