It has been a crazy four-ish years. I would like to thank Lane Kiffin for quitting, because that threw me into photography here at The Daily Beacon. From wine bottles and boots, to bus trips to NYC, to onesies with the girls and lastly a welcoming office that I could go and never be upset, I have loved every minute with the staff here. After trying to tag everyone on Facebook I realized the list is too long to even attempt again, but thank you, every one of you. I am the person I am today because of y'all.
