A colleague shared this blog of ultimate win with me:http://www.stuffjournalistslike.com

There is quite seriously nothing in there that hasn't made a meaningful impact on my career thus far, except for perhaps the "throwing shoes" thing, which is fairly journalist-specific.This
is basically the desk of everyone in the newsroom except for me. I found a yellowed copy of a paper from 1999 on one of my coworker's desks there once, slipping out from under a pile.
sadly, accurately summarizes my feelings on the situation at our paper and others.
