I knew the day would come, I just knew it. I am officially famous. I have my picture and part of my life story in a magazine with a circulation of thousands. I was waiting for the story to be available online, but I just can't hold it in any more.
I am featured in the Humanities at BYU magazine, Spring 2008 edition, pages 6 and 7. During graduation there was a small piece of paper at the sign in desk where the graduates were asked if they were interested in participating in a survey of graduates to be featured in the magazine. If so, we were to email the editor of the mag. I emailed him, told him why my story might be semi-interesting to the public, and he in turn sent back numerous questions for me to answer, with instructions to be real and funny, if possible. No problem, right? I answered the questions and sent it back. A few days later he emailed me and asked for pictures, saying that he wasn't sure if they would use me or not, but they might use ONLY me. Okay, no prob. I sent the best pics of graduation that I had. The one was me in my ALUM shirt that I posted on this blog, the other was the four of us on graduation night with me in my cap and gown.
Late last week the editor emails me and says the magazine is out and would I like a few extra copies? Sure I say and give him my address.
Then on Sunday a lady in our ward says, "Jeanna, I saw you in the magazine today." Really? I was so excited. I hadn't received my copies yet so she had her daughter run her copy over to me. I am pretty happy about the way it all turned out. I felt like I was pretty eloquent, I mean, when am I NOT eloquent, right? :)
As soon as the mag is published online, I will provide you all with a link. In the meantime I will just bask in my glory, alone, with the thousands of other humanities majors at BYU who receive the mag. I see this as my one final Hurrah! after graduation.
