Note from the Editor:
Homework, group projects, social outings, club meetings and finding time to eat. Sounds like a lot, huh? Try comparing these tasks to a couple of steep hills with spots of quicksand, which our shoes get sucked into. We pull them back on and keep walking, sweating, waiting for the next casualty that hides behind each bend.
Veteran hikers of this metaphorical mountain told us that eventually, we’d be at the top. Supposedly, the mountain overlooks a lake and several other peaks that are submerged in thick, fluffy clouds. I guess the beautiful scenery is where we like to stop and pull our phones out to take pictures for you to see. Eventually, we become the veterans. We are the ones who forward the advice to those who truly need it.
The APN staff’s experiences, as well as the experiences of those around us, are important to us. Although our staff is submerged in the college antics — homework, group projects, social outings, club meetings and finding time to eat — I’d like to think that we get through it.
With that being said, I’m proud to say, that our fall 2017 staff will provide you with all things pertaining to health and fitness, style, food and drink, arts and culture, and love and relationships. Although our staff is working hard in all aspects of life, I commend them. Giving our readers real, valuable information and advice that they can carry into their own lives is crucial for us as journalists. Each story is handpicked and crafted by us. With our own life experiences, we give our stories a raw, truthful twist.
We are the veterans.
Angela Lince, EIC
