Let Your Mind Wander: Intro to Adrienne Wander’s Column
My name is Adrienne, and this is my column. I got a lot of wonderful suggestions for names, so first off I’d like to say thank you to those who contributed, and to encourage you all to keep these articles feeling interactive. There is no specific theme, except that hopefully I’ll publish two a month and they will be on things that are interesting to me and hopefully to you as well.
A little about me: I am a senior (!!!) and I have played a lot of sports here at Prep. Specifically (at one time or another) basketball, swimming, cross country, softball, and volleyball. I am also involved with PHIRE, JuCo, (not to be confused with JewCrew, of which I am also a leader) and Darts Club. You may know me from my myriad of hilarious and lengthy assembly announcements, or perhaps because you have a particular affinity for shirts with astronauts on them and have noticed that I wear one almost every day.
I asked our wonderful editors here at the Radar to let me do this for a few reasons. One, my mom says it’s good experience to write with deadlines, or to be expected to produce a certain amount of work in a given time. Two, because I have been really, really happy here at CPS. This won’t be a “how-to” guide for high school, or hopefully too much advice, but just my personal musings on stuff I care about and why my experience was the way that it was.
Why should you care? Uh. Good question! I’ll have to think on that. In the meantime, please read my work and then come up to me and talk to me about it! If you’ve got any topics you think I should write on please let me know, I am always open to (and will probably eventually need) suggestions.
