As I graduated UWM, I looked back on all the experiences and opportunities I've had there over the years, and am truly fortunate to have worked with the organizations that I have, met the people I've met, and made the friends that I've made. It was a wild ride, from overnight shifts in the office planning for initiatives or policy objectives to dealing with the protesters....there's always protesters, it seems. I have had the wonderful opportunity of serving the students of UWM for 4 years, keeping segregated fees under control while under the purview of our group, of which I am quite proud. A special thank you to my favorite journalism instructors, Jessice McBride, for having blogging as part of her curriculum, which ended up spawning this blog, and Mark Zoromski, who guided budding students interested in journalism through the murky waters, and mentored those of us who formed, ran, and participated in the Broadcasting Club.
Graduation marks the beginning of a new chapter in life, and I look forward to embarking on it.
Thank you all to my loyal readers, who generated 449,000 hits to my blog over the years. Who knew a conservative college kid's opinion and perspective about life and current events would generate that much interest? I certainly didn't when I began, but am humbled by the ensuing reality.
Thank you all so very much.
That's all for now!
