IRL: I Survived!

Technically I still have one more exam to go, but I’m declaring victory now. I will gladly accept the 1.3.3 patch as my welcome-back-to-WAR present. Thank you, Mythic.

Curious as to what exactly kept me away from WAR and led to me becoming a zombie journalism student?

ProjectThat beast right there. That my dear Waaaghers is a research project on one of my state legislators filled with public records.

Lots of goodies, such as property records, Form 6 Financial Disclosures, campaign contributions and expenditures dating back to 1998, one traffic ticket, and even a copy of his income tax return.

I stopped counting after page 80.

I also had another big project that I finished today. At 4 p.m. on the dot.

I remember the exact time because that’s when my multimedia reporting class was due to present our Web site package, which I was coding right up until the last minute.

Over the course of that project I broke the Internet (whoops) and learned an entirely new way to design a site.

While I still need to fix errors with the structure (don’t view in IE please), it’s live and it’s wonderful. My department chair even stopped by to check it out.
