Wow. It has been a while. There’s a lot to catch up on, but it’s perfect for this year in review.
It was a crazy year and it doesn’t seem like it all happened in just one. January of 2017 feels like it could have happened three years ago. January started with a trip to D.C. to cover the presidential inauguration and our college’s drill team who performed in the parade. During our time there we also covered the Women’s March. This was my first time to D.C. and while the work was difficult it was so cool and worth it.
I finished up my term as editor-in-chief of The University Star in the spring. That job was the most difficult I’ve had but it taught me so much not just about how to work with and manage others but about myself as well.
During the summer, I interned at a local paper in my hometown and really dove into back-end development and management. I learned a lot and it was a good job for the summer.
Then I went back to college for my last semester. I got engaged that semester and graduated at the end of it. It was truly an amazing experience and I love the school I went to (eat ‘em up cats).
This year hasn’t started off any slower. I started my first post-grad job as a paid intern doing exactly what I wanted to do and moved into an apartment with my fiancé. I can’t wait to see what else this year will bring and I’m so grateful for 2017.
What was your favorite part of last year?
