We’re Not THAT Creepy.

When you tell your friends that you are a writer for your college newspaper, some of them may think that you are a shut-in whose dream is to become a world-famous author. Well, the friends who are of the sane-minded part of society will think this, at least. The only problem with their mindset is that the latter of the two situations, is only partially true.

Yes, you are looked upon by fellow students as a psychopath who’s desperately trying to be discovered somehow by a college newspaper, but there are perks. Last week, some of us were promoted. That’s right, folks, we’re getting higher on the psycho-writer totem pole.

It’s not that my dream is to become the next John Green or J. K. Rowling, but I do think I’m pretty funny and witty.

Yep, that’s it. Just trying to show off my humor.

In all honesty, I too did not want to start my freshman year labeled as one of “the writers.” But as luck would have it, all the English Department professors ganged up on me in a hallway talking about deadlines until I caved. I knew I should have gone for a B in Composition I…

Anyways, the point I’m having difficulty proving is that we’re not all that bad. Yes, I’m considering myself one of them now.

We’re normal… sort of. I’d like to think that I’m now better at English but in reality I think I’ve stayed the same and the other members of the TCT make my articles look nice. What you’re reading now may be the first or fourth time I’ve written this; you’ll never know.

My dream right now is that you’re actually reading this. Sometimes I’ll get a polite, pitying “No thanks” as I try to hand out my team’s newspaper. Next time I’ll hand out hot coffee.
