War Whoop Online

Dusty Barron
It’s only the second week of school and I’m already dead! It's very hard to concentrate because my stomach is rumbling, so apologies in advance when this thing makes absolutely no sense.

Me in a nutshell? That neighborhood grandma, the one everyone knows they can come to if they need anything. I’ve always got candy, and I probably have some money to loan you-- although, maybe advertising that on the Internet isn’t the best idea... Anyway, I also crochet (it's relaxing!) and I have really creaky joints; I qualify for grandmotherhood as a mere 18 year old. Imagine how great a grandma I’ll be when I actually have grandkids.

Being a band kid, my music is a big part of my life. I listen to pretty much anything, as long as I can understand the words (if there are any. Instrumentals are good, too).

This year, I have a lot of fairly daunting responsibility on my shoulders. As a fourth-year journalism student, I am the editor-in-chief of the newspaper, the director of The BEAT, as well as editor of the Student Life section of the yearbook. I’m also a student leader at my church. All of this has compiled to tackle me in one big show of “welcome to adulting, kid. Have fun, but only a little. There’s too much stress and stuff to want more.”

My mom accidentally drank 3 Cokes while pregnant with me, creating a very caffeine-dependant daughter who was born three months early. I mean, otherwise, I’m fine! It’s just that I become insufferable if I don’t have some form of caffeine at least once a day. I feel like that’s some sort of unspoken requirement to be one of the journalists here, though. Or is it part of being a journalist, period? These are the questions we need to be answering.
