Hello, and welcome to Reed Void. We’re here to serve as that friend from elementary school who’d ask your crush if they liked you back, except we’re a lot less sketch. Basically, you send us a list of people you’re attracted to/want to date/want to sleep with, which we will keep entirely anonymous unless/until someone from that list lists you in a similar fashion. That is, if we, in our omniscient glory, discover a mutual attraction between two of our disciples, we shall contact both parties and inform them of such. We’re like Reed Speed Dating, but quicker, and with less social interaction! So please, feel free to shout into the void, so to speak—at worst, nothing will happen, and at best, you’ll receive some happy news. CURRENT REED STUDENTS ONLY, PLEASE.
If there is one trend we’ve seen— between Switchboard, the Reed Yenta, Reed Emissions, Missed Connections and now this— it is that Reedies, and perhaps everyone, really long to connect with other real humans.
Reddit Q&A: >Q: I’m a freshman in college right now & journalism is a career that interests me. Is there any advice you can share on being successful in journalism? > >A: You have to make stuff. The tools of journalism are in your hands and no one is going to give a damn about what is on your resume, they want to see what you have made with your own little fingies. Can you use Final Cut Pro? Have you created an Instagram that is about something besides a picture of your cat every time she rolls over? Is HTML 5 a foreign language to you? Is your social media presence dominated by a picture of your beer bong, or is it an RSS of interesting stuff that you add insight to? People who are doing hires will have great visibility into what you can actually do, what you care about and how you can express on any number of platforms. (via explore-blog)
Anyway! I hope everybody had a great non-denomination-specific nebulously-lengthed period of celebration surrounding the yearly increment of the Gregorian calendar
From Wick’s latest update. Wick, you are awesome.
