Intro lede

I think it takes a certain kind of person to start a blog—a certain personality that I'm not entirely sure I possess. But, being a journalism major in a time when newspapers are going bankrupt and staffs are cut in half, I suppose it's time for me to create one. So here it goes:

Lately, I've been really into pop culture, mostly because it's award season and I just happen to love the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards (nominations to be announced here on Jan. 22). I've also really gotten into Vanity Fair lately, and the interesting musings that the VF editors post like this one about what news on iTunes might look like—iNews if you will. As a subscriber of the magazine, I thoroughly enjoy the articles as well.

I've always been a fan of the university news (working for a college newspaper somehow does that to you), so I'll be posting stories from the higher education scene every now and again.

I will likely use this blog as an interpretation of news and infotainment that is produced daily throughout the country, posting things of interest that have too quickly flooded my Facebook wall. 

Be sure to keep up as some days will have more posts than others. But for today I'll start with the basics—thanks for following along.
