Over my many years as a student and writer, I’ve come to realize that generic introductions are the bane of most people’s existences, so I’ll spare you. I’ve been graciously handed the keyboard keys to the gates of Vox Populi. I’ve reported before for this blog, as well as done the occasional thing for the print edition, but the future we have together is steeped in dark mystery.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, that as the editor of the blog of a student newspaper, I am burdened with glorious purpose. Along with me on this quest are my brave assistant editors Ryan, Izzy, Laura, and Minali.
In this terrifying time of transition, in which I hopefully learn how to use WordPress, I understand that some questions and doubts will arise—how has this blog been able to cover serious, hard-hitting issues with such grace and aplomb? Will you continue to use aggressive blingees to tempt me away from schoolwork? What’s it like to be the first openly Japanese-American female to edit Vox?
I’ll be sure to keep you posted. At this point, I actually have no other option. In the meantime, if you’d like to join us, give us a tip, or just check in, please do so! Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and grab a copy of the print edition at various locations on campus, including your dorms, the ICC, Leavey, or at your local barbecue.
