This page was started in the 2018/19 school year, and has since become one of my favorite parts of my everyday life. I was a little skeptical about writing about food and wellness, two things that I don’t consider myself an expert on by any means. I thought that it meant that I needed to know about “easy dorm recipes” and “working out 101”, but it turned into so much more than that.
My first issue, there was an article about yoga and one about working out when you have no idea how to, which pretty much met my expectations. And then I realized that “wellness” also means mental health and body image, and “food” means sometimes people need recommendations for other places in the area to eat. This page became a little bit of every other page, and just a little piece of me too.
I’m honored to have been a part of this paper and I’ll miss it when I’m gone. This entire Brackety-Ack experience has meant so much to me, and knowing that I might have helped someone out of a hard time makes me feel like all the late nights and punch-drunk shenanigans of layout are worth it.
