State Press News One Red Paperclip

When I was in college at Arizona State University from 2006 to 2008, I wrote for the school news paper; called State Press News.

At this point, I had already run my own Magazine called S.L.A.M. (Support Local Arts & Music,) and written for College Affair Magazine. In addition, I was doing an internship at the East Valley Tribune.

However, I took regular assignments with the ASU newspaper in addition to my other work. This was because I paid my way through my education mostly by winning scholarships. The more activities I did, the better it looked an my scholarship applications.

The school newspaper assigned me the things everyone else was too nervous to write about. For awhile I did a sex column for them, and I always ended up with the stories about “scary people” like the Goth subculture or the metal music scene.

However, I took whatever assignments they gave me because I am an easy-going person and I am comfortable researching anything. I didn’t save many of my clips because I was often too busy to pick up the paper, but some of them are scattered throughout this post.
