if you build it, they will come.

i'm so pleased at how my ed2010 meeting turned out tonight. i really feel like kevin costner from field of dreams. 

james earl jones: "if you build it, they will come."

that's exactly how i feel tonight went. i've put in quite a little bit of work thinking and planning this magazine club and it totally paid off.

we had an amazing turnout (worst fear- 3 people showing up- totally didn't happen). after handing out newsletters, explaining what the club was all about, and getting through a nervous/awkward couple of seconds of silence after asking "are there any questions?", i was beyond thrilled when people started telling me which committees they wanted to join. the enthusiasm was just... wow.

we have an awesome group of people and i really can't wait to hang out with everyone who showed up. it's so cool getting a group of people together for a common purpose and a common love for something other than alcohol, chick flicks, and food (though the cookies ashley made for the meeting were delicious).

yay ed. yay journalism/grc nerds. yay magazines.
