This year had some rough parts for me. At work, we had a lot of changes and upheaval, and everything’s settled now, but it wasn’t for awhile. There also were some newsroom projects that took a lot of energy and resources, and enough of them in a row that it was hard to catch my […]

My freshman year at WSU, I’d walk home at night from the gym in the snow. If I’d swam, my hair would freeze. My toes, in my canvas skateboarder shoes, always froze. My iPod headphone-cords would freeze. I’d have to take off my mittens to text, to change the song. Walking back to me and […]
