In the November 13 issue of TechNews, our editor-in-chief wrote an article titled “Let’s stop and assume for a moment” where he mentions that TechNews has a whole team of writers, photographers, and editors responsible for this paper’s success “but that is a point to be covered in another article.” I thought I would take it upon myself to write that article.

I’m a mediocre flute player; I’ve been playing for quite a while, but I’ve never prioritized practicing and due to this have never had the kind of skill that dedicated musicians earn. Making music was something I enjoyed but didn’t move my life around. I stopped taking band after my freshman year of high school in order to make room for the STEM classes I wanted to take, something I now regret.
