#Longpostalert: Four months ago today, my best friend and I spent one of my finals days in Georgia getting a tattoo together. It wasn't totally planned out, but we went with our gut feeling and the advice of a seasoned tattoo artist.
Quotation marks: because communication is my career, yes, but it's also just critical to society as a whole.
Speech bubble: a reminder of the weight of what we do. People let journalists into their lives and allow us to be a vessel for their voices. We must use that responsibly.
But the outline, that speech bubble, is also the logo for @ksu_sentinel, the student newspaper that started it all for me. It was important to memorialize that start.
I look at this tattoo every day with pride. I miss my partner in journalism, but I'm glad we have this together. ✊💬
