Though I don't have even a passing interest in journalism, newspapers or the real world in general, I write for our undergraduate-produced publication for one very important reason: I believe it is my purpose on earth to write opinionated CD reviews. I relish nothing more than telling other people just how bad their taste in music is, 1,600 characters at a time. That, and correcting others' grammar.
Because I excel so much at those two aforementioned things, I was made an assistant managing editor after just one semester as a staff writer for the Arts desk where I wrote – you guessed it – opinionated CD reviews. It's a position I'm very excited to fill, and an opportunity I'm really glad to have.
When not writing opinionated CD reviews, I spend my free time reading postmodern novels, watching European art films, listening to progressive rock music, writing things that will never see the light of day, and generally not contributing to society in any meaningful way. I've also been known to impersonate a sports writer from time to time via facebook notes, but only when the NFL Draft, fantasy football, or any other form of pigskin prognostication is involved. Sarcasm and self-deprecation aside, I'm really looking forward to this coming year at The Spectrum, working with all of our great staff, and writing things bigger and better than the opinionated, 1600 character CD reviews to which I have grown accustomed.
