Highlights from 2011

Before plowing ahead into a new year, it’s always a good idea to stop and look back. Hence, a summary of my 2011 for your reading pleasure.


Began work as Editorial Page Editor at the Columbia Daily Spectator. Learned how not to run my own meetings and have a healthy sleep schedule. Got a grip on editing and sent hundreds of emails. Began to see the value of social media and devalue V&T pizza.


Attended the Columbia Daily Spectator Annual Awards Dinner, heard Ariana Huffington speak, ran into Joan Didon in the bathroom line. Went on an uncharacteristically high number of dates.


Ran my first half-marathon in 2 hours and 17 minutes. The best part, besides getting in shape and saving orphans, was the tent of sandwiches at the end.


Started interning at International Justice Mission and got to edit the book proposal of Gary himself. Ate at Nando’s Peri-Peri many, many times while in the D.C. area.


Started this blog, turned 21, and was sent a package of margarita cookies by Frannie Laughner.


Survived a hurricane; began my senior year.


Got a lede article published in The Eye. Soon after, was excited to see a chaplain’s council formed.


Finished being Editorial Page Editor, got a gig as Daily Editor for the blog. Arrived home after finals to discover a new independent coffee shop literally around the corner from my house. (Coincidentally, that’s where I am now.)

See you all in 2012.

  1. I’m going to have to agree with Joy on this one… 😛
    I hope 2012 is better too! You should do a post on resolutions for the year! (this was my first year writing them so I’m kind of obsessed…)
