I find the world endlessly fascinating, and as such, it requires obligatory investigation. There are also still only 24 hours in a day. Quite the quandary.
[insert inspirational quote here. carpe diem, and such]
The title of this blog comes from the philosophy of Tom Fiedler, comm school dean at Boston University. I find his words (from a 2009 NYT article) extremely relevant to the atmosphere today’s blooming journalists face.
“It’s the soup and not the bowl that provides the nourishment we need….We want to teach our students to make a great soup. What they serve it in matters little.”
I graduated with my master’s in journalism from the University of Missouri, where I also captained the triathlon club team.
I spent the previous four years loving (almost) every minute at St. Ambrose University. I consider the entire campus community to be an integral part of my life, but a special nod goes to the men and women of the Fighting Bee track and field team.
In other news, I made every header photo you see on the home page.
