Editor adopts second family

After only a year on Cardinal Points, I’ve grown so close to this special group of people. In just my second semester on the paper, I got the call to be the graphics editor. I had to spend countless hours in the CP office on a weekly basis. If it was for anything else, I probably would’ve gone insane, but it was with a great group of my fellow editors who made it worth it at the end of each week.

I’ve been a part of my fraternity since the spring of 2013, and I didn’t think I’d find another family at Plattsburgh. I was mistaken.

It was so easy to get close to this group because nearly everyone is a journalism major. Being in an office with any group of people until 2 a.m. can really develop a bond with everyone quickly. If someone told me I’d be in an office for 10 to 12 hours one night, just to wake up a few hours later to be back in that office, I would’ve laughed.

But, here I am at the end of a full semester having done just that.

For someone who can talk for hours about anything, I’m really at a loss for words when it comes to talking about my CP family. I’ve grown a special bond with everyone on this editorial board, and I’m not really sure what I’ll do without these people once the semester is over.

It’s different this time around because come August, I won’t be getting ready for another haul back to Plattsburgh. I won’t be giddy with excitement to see everyone for another round. Come May 14, it’s over. For good. That’s the one thing that makes it so hard for me to say goodbye to everyone on this staff.
