stacks of papers at my office

I have spent a good portion of the last seven years of my life of my life trying to fill the pages of newspapers. What started as a job to get pizza money at $12 an article at the Western Illinois University Western Courier in late Sept. 200 (ish), has turned into an obsession. 

I’ve moved to galesburg, il; springfield, il; davenport, iowa; pierre, s.d.; oshkosh, wis.; and now woodstock, il to pursue this crazy passion. 

in case you were wondering i still love it. 

i just hope the industry doesn’t die before i do.

  1. The last sentence makes me a little sad. Maybe you could write a sitcom about a newspaper that would make print cooler than the ‘nets. It worked with American Idol; just look how popular Karaoke is now.
