It took me a while to write this. Even as a journalist, words can be hard to come by when something means so much to you. That’s why when I started to write this, I didn’t want to. But at some point, I realized I had to say goodbye. Goodbye to the lifetime friends I made inside and outside...

After three years, six semesters, 27 months or approximately 810 days, you’d think I’d have tried to work my way up the chain of command at The Daily Evergreen. Instead, I remained happily as a reporter and columnist, never completing one page of layout or assigning anyone a story. My legacy,...
