Stacey May Fowles, the circ and marketing director at The Walrus and publisher of Shameless magazine, was wondering how Walrus interns thought about the scary, pessimistic and generally uncertain tone these days; so she asked them and posted their comments on her blog on Masthead. For instance when they were asked if they were optimistic about the future:
Ashton Osmak: Oddly, yes. There was a poster in a gallery on West Queen West about a month ago that effectively articulated my new mantra: "Good things happen to those who hustle". Amen.
Alina Seagal: Yes, very much so. But maybe I am just a young, naive intern, full of romantic misconceptions about the nature of journalism.
Katie Addleman: Hell yes! Obama is president, I have somewhere to live and it's almost spring. Everything's gonna be fiiiiine.
Kasey Coholan: Obviously. The challenge is getting everyone else to be optimistic.
