published! kind of...

What a busy week it has been! The semester is only a week old, but I feel like I've been doing this forever. My biggest adventure is my Comms 321 class, writing for the Daily Universe. I was assigned the police beat, among other things, which has been my goal since before I even started at BYU. Today was my first experience in print, and even though my name wasn't attached to it the beat in the print version, it was quite exciting. Here is a link to the story on BYU NewsNet, which actually gives me credit for compiling and writing the blurbs.

Also, I will have another story printed on Monday, probably on the front page!!

Christmas at home!

I had a wonderful few weeks at home for Christmas, and experienced my first white Christmas ever. The snow was lots of fun, but a little cabin-fever inducing. I loved being with tons of family and taking a break from school. Here are some highlights from my time at home: Riding the ferry

Opening cousin Christmas presents
visiting Grandma and Grandpa Treasure
