The Alleyway

Welcome to the end, everyone. This is the final issue of the semester, if you couldn’t tell from the previous pages. It also means that this is my last issue as the Editor-in-Chief, and I have some stuff to say.

It’s been hard. This job is a constant battle of time management and personal life. Often, I would do my homework during the weekend, the only time I didn’t work. And there is no way on Earth I could have done this job without my awesome coworkers.

Kaitlin, thanks for not getting too angry when a story was changed or added, and thanks for sticking through this year. You are part of the backbone of the Ram Page’s success this year. You didn’t just do photos, you did editing, cutlines and all sorts of stuff a normal photo editor didn’t need to do. Honestly, you are an inspiration.

Mikera, you are one of only three current members that started with me. You may not be a writing major, but I think you could totally write. We are friends, and I’m sure we will be friends for years to come. In and out of the office, we had fun and did our jobs together.

Patrick, you are a madman. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed as much before I met you. Please, keep writing and drawing. You are crazy and fantastic, which is an awesome combination.

Rosanna, you are so calm and consistent in your work. Those times when you speak up shine with cleverness. I believe in you. Go do everything you set your mind to.

Hilario and Josh Horton, both of you guys were hired late in the game, but you do great work. I never worry about you doing your jobs. And, you are fun to talk to.

Brit, Zelenia, you were late hires too, but awesome additions to the team. Brit, you have so much talent. If I don’t see you taking over an art exhibition, I would be shocked. Zelenia, your way with words is art. Keep writing.

To the many staff members, who left early, thank you for your work. Even though you didn’t stay the whole year/semester, you still contributed to the Ram Page’s success.

I haven’t forgotten you, the readers, the entire reason we publish this. Thank you for reading us, and please keep doing so. Alina and her crew next semester are bound to do just as great, if not better, than we have this year.

Personally, I would like to thank Dr. Johnson for entrusting me with this job and believing in me. We may not have always seen eye to eye, but I know you had our backs.

Every person who took their time to talk to us, thank you for branching out and letting us use you for information/photos/quotes, etc. I hope we did well by you.

A huge thank you goes to the Ram Rugby team for always giving us quick responses and making us laugh. Please have more games next semester so I can come watch a game. Same goes for all the sports teams. I want ASU athletes, intramural and official, to continue being the best.

Finally, thank you to my family, boyfriend and friends for giving me ideas, cheering me up and being there for me.

This is my farewell to all of you Ram Page readers. My team and I did our best to bring you the best. Keep reading and keep winning at all you do.
