My brother

See? I'm back! Totally!

...sorta.

The school year is starting to wind down, and my sleep schedule should be returning to semi-normal in a month or two. As such, I will once again need an outlet for writing stuff (as well as something to throw on a resume eventually, pending some potential deleting of some of the posts on here) and will be restarting the blog in earnest.

Obviously, there is a lot to update everyone on in my life (being editor-in-chief, graduating, jobs, maybe living in South Korea for a year, you know, no big). But a couple of weeks ago, something took a little extra precedence - my brother, Ryan, committed suicide.

It's been an up-and-down last couple of weeks, but I and my family are generally doing okay. I'm sure I'll write more about it on here, but I figured for starters I would just post the column I wrote this week on my newspaper for you all to read. Many of my followers on this blog know an embarrassing amount of personal information about me, and I weirdly thought many of you almost deserved to read it. I'm actually immensely proud of it (which is probably another reason I'm posting it), and I hope that some of you or some people you know can get something from it.

More to come soon, promise.
