You’re walking in the halls. There’s no one around and your phone is dead. Out of the corner of your eye, you spot it:

Senior Year.

Entering her third and final year in newspaper, Jordan kind of feels like her leg is caught in a bear trap. High school has flown by and now that it’s her final year, she...feels exactly like she did all the other three years. It’s really not a big deal. She just wants to leave.

Aside from using an excessive amount of actual cannibal Shia Labeouf references, Jordan also enjoys binge eating excessive amounts of chocolate, watching way too many YouTube videos, and taking naps in odd places (Ex: On top of bar stools). Jordan thinks she’s probably the best person who’s ever lived, and though several people have tried to convince her otherwise, she remains confident in this fact. If she could marry anyone in the whole world it would be Whataburger. Jordan is looking forward to doing more opinion pieces this year, because although she excels at and love news writing, she has a lot of thoughts that she would like to share. If you’re ever sad, talk to her, because she gives a lot of good advice. On the other hand she’s very blunt about it, so approach with caution. She is way too sarcastic for her own good and sometimes crosses several fine lines, but the good news is this - she doesn’t care.

In closure, this bio is all over the place but that’s okay, because it’s just a normal Tuesday night for Shia Labeouf.
