Lyndsey Lewis

I was elected editor of the Alligator in August, but I've held multiple jobs at the paper since coming on board in late 2004. Fresh out of high school, I nervously applied for a copy-editing position on my 18th birthday, and I've been editing and writing for the paper almost every semester since then. I've also completed reporting internships in Tallahassee and Washington, where I covered government at the state and national levels.

Now that I'm back at the Alligator, I spend five nights a week at our office building, which has become something of a second home for me. I compensate for the void in my social life by reminding myself how much I love my job and the newspaper, which, in my entirely unbiased opinion, produces some of the best student journalism around. When I find myself with some spare time - an increasingly rare luxury - I typically spend it catching up with my roommate, wasting away cell-phone minutes, or frantically refreshing news Web pages (a daily activity). Eventually, I'd like this blog to become something Alligator readers check daily as well.
