Commentary: Journalism is still alive

<i>Commentary</i>: Journalism is still alive

And you know what I have to say to that? Well, most of the time it involves a lot of yelling, perhaps some crying and a few curse words strung in for added effect. Which brings me to last weekend, when I added another weapon to my arsenal...

Commentary: Unexpected overreaction to celebrities

<i>Commentary</i>: Unexpected overreaction to celebrities
Carly Hill, Arts Editor I am not one to get star struck. One of the first things you learn as a reporter is that everyone is equal, some people have different expertise. I have learned to treat everyone as a normal, average person on the street. Some people just have more bodyguards that you have to cross to get to them. Which has helped in a lot of situations, whether it was interviewing ULV President...

Now at 21 years old, I got lonely. However, there is one surprising thing I actually enjoy doing alone. I get the biggest rush from going to concerts by myself. After getting a freelance gig at a music magazine, requiring me to venture...
