I’m sitting at the Editor-in-Chief’s desk. It’s still weird to call it mine. This is honestly the first writing piece I’ve done for The Daily Gamecock and this is my sixth semester here. I've always been with photo. I’ve touched design and writing but never had a specific piece to call my own. I planned so much for this first night of production, but so far life has thrown my plans to the curb. Running a daily newspaper will never be the exact definition of smooth. I should have known.
But this goes to show that one can never fully plan out everything and expect it to go as planned to the dot. Life happens and we must be flexible.
So welcome back. To Columbia, to USC, to spring 2016. We’ve all made our New Year's resolutions. We’ve all made those promises to ourselves about how this year it’s going to be different and hopefully for the better. For some, this semester is going to be rough. Hang in there. For some, this semester is seemingly easy. Challenge yourself. And if you don’t, life will.
At The Daily Gamecock, changes are underway to keep up with the world around us. We can’t promise a smooth semester. We can’t promise it will be easy. We will keep doing it daily. We will keep you informed to the best of our knowledge. We will continue to challenge ourselves to bring our best to the table.
