Words from the Editor
Mark Boyer | Editor
Before I begin, I'd like to say that yes...I took this in a Panera Bread Bathroom.
Hello viewer! My name is Mark Boyer and I'm an LCCC student and Communications major by day, and Paw Print editor by night. I also am currently suffering from burnout and the stresses of everyday life.
A few things about me to know are that I am a Taurus, an iced coffee aficionado, a lover of all things the 90s and 00s, an artist, writer, best friend, and full-time uncle to two nieces.
How did I end up in the Paw Print? Believe me, I'm still guessing just as much as you are. With a little encouragement from the legend known as Jessie Heimann, I decided to open my horizons in writing and give it a shot.
Writing has always been something I've used for self-expression. I never thought of it as a way to cope but it does help in those times. Writing for me is a way to speak on matters and opinions that I could never verbally articulate but still with my own sense of humor and ideas.
From pages of paper stapled together with words and illustrations embodying a novel to blogs, essays, discussion posts, tweets, texts, short stories, etc. I let my creative mind flow one keystroke at a time.
A bit of advice that I would give to whom it may concern, is to just have fun and make whatever obstacle is thrown at you, yours. You matter you belong, and you are worth it.
