Today was exciting because…

1 Sep

today the Online News Association announced that the the Forward and the St. Louis Beacon are finalists for Online Journalism Awards!!! This is exciting because I’ve worked at these two places. But even more exciting: I was with my boss at the Forward on my last day there when he heard the news. And less than a minute later, my phone buzzed with an e-mail from my boss from last summer at the Beacon, breaking the news of the nomination. Although I am unqualified to judge—and I am obviously biased—based on what I know, these two publications deserve the recognition and much more.

In other news: spent the morning working on Spec’s orientation issue, wrote a blog post for Spec, bumped into several administrators, and finished up work at the Forward. I’m going to miss the people there, and I already miss my job at the Daily News. School is coming soooooon… senior year. Oh boy.
