“That guy that we think is still at the Texan?” is officially leaving

Michael Conway

Editor’s note: A 30 column is a chance for departing permanent staff to say farewell and reflect on their time spent in The Daily Texan’s basement office. The term comes from the old typesetting mark (-30-) to denote the end of a line. 

Through my whole time here at UT, I have also been an employee of The Daily Texan. I want to keep it short and sweet.

To the people I met here at the Texan that sculpted and showed me the ropes, I can never thank you enough. Experiencing and learning how to both collaborate with others — and knowing when to just shut up and do it as a one-man-band is something I will always thank the Texan for.

Cheers to Alec, Dan, Bryce, Lauren and Carlo for teaching me, learning with me and being the ones I think of first when “Daily Texan” comes into my mind.

Cheers to the Texan for giving me the experiences of going to and learning about countless events, groups, festivals and people that I normally would not have taken a second look at.

So long to the late nights of pushing a story out, sleeping on the couch, actually considering the mysterious Texan shower and, of course, always coming in hot to the scene.
