I was yelling at the TV for a lot of election night. I was at the Pio's election night liveblog headquarters (read: Managing Editor Libby Arnosti's house), watching a live feed of election coverage, as well as compulsively refreshing multiple tabs in my browser. As anyone who knows me will tell you, ...

3:30 p.m. I arrive to a deserted office, with the exception of Opinion P.A. Maddie Coons. In the process of snacking, I manage to get honey stuck all over my hands.

It all began on a Wednesday. Wednesdays are the busiest days, even though I was not expecting that to be the case. I have one class on Wednesday, so I thought they would generally be relaxing––that is until I got caught up in the tidal wave that is Wednesday Production Night. I usually start...
