My journalism career at Central Michigan University has been atypical compared to other students in the program. Picking a major was difficult because I wanted to learn about everything and never stop learning. I switched my major six or seven times before deciding to be a science writer. I had to go far beyond the limits of my comfort zone to find out what I wanted to do with my career.Before I knew much about journalism or how to report news, I had one specific interest — research.
When I was younger, and people around me would complain about stress and anxiety, I would assume they were overreacting.
Cancer never sleeps.This is why more than 300 participants will walk around the Indoor Athletic Complex's track for 12 hours on Saturday for the 21st annual Relay For Life fundraiser at Central Michigan University.First hosted at CMU in 1996, it is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

TO THE EDITOR:My name is Justin Gawronski and I am writing in support of the formation of a Gender and Sexuality Center at Central Michigan University. As the Student Government Association President during the 2012-2013 academic year, I signed legislation in support of a Gender and Sexuality Center. Almost five years later, it is now past-time that CMU stops preaching values of inclusivity and tolerance, and starts doing something about it.Beyond having the honor to serve as the SGA President, I also served as a resident assistant, orientation leader, volunteer with the Office of LGBTQ Services, campus ambassador, and Leadership Institute intern.
If Friday is your first St. Patrick’s Day in Mount Pleasant, here’s some advice: Things can get wild.
My biggest gripe about my job is I'm expected to be constantly wired in.As a journalist, I'm expected to know the most recent headlines, monitor social media for tips, engage on social media with audience members, call, text and email sources, write stories, be 100 percent accurate all the time and then listen to people complain when they're not happy about what I report.

TO THE EDITOR: I read with interest Monday’s editorial concerning the decision to turn down a request to rezone the former SBX building from its current C-1 (commercial) zone to M-2 (multiple family). While I disagree with the editorial’s position that it would have been better if we had approved the request, I do agree with some of the key points made in the editorial. I completely agree the decision does not in any way assure Kaya Coffee House will be able to continue operating in its current location.
Water is not a commodity. It should be a right.
When I first started to cover the Central Michigan women’s basketball team, I had no idea that I would be getting involved with one of the best coaches in CMU Athletics history. That’s how I feel about Sue Guevara, and I know I’m not alone.After the Chippewas' first game of the season when they were throttled by Notre Dame 107-47, I honestly didn't expect Guevara to talk to the media, but that’s because I didn't know anything about her.When I did get the chance to talk to her and ask about how this team would respond, what she said has stuck with me throughout the season. “It was our first game of the season and that was the number one team in the country,” Guevara said.
For now, Kaya Coffee House will remain in its current location in the SBX Bookstore building.That's good news. The future of the business, however, is still undecided.
