It’s hard to believe that I now have my master’s degree. I graduated from the University of Oregon last Monday and the next day I left for SF to start my internships at 7×7 magazine and Barc SF (a small advertising agency). I did manage to wear my hat backwards and my hood inside out so I had that going for me. I can’t thank my professors enough for supporting me throughout the year and providing me with new vital skills that I know I can take into the job market. Being up in Eugene was great, even though it felt strange at first having moved from New York City. I won’t miss the rain but I will miss all the green trees, hiking Spencer Butte, and paying $2 for a beer. My small cohort of 8 have all gone on to do different things and it’s crazy to think that just a year ago we were all sitting in the library conference room introducing ourselves. Thank you SOJC and everyone up in Eugene who made the last year so rewarding. Onto the next adventure!
