When I first joined The Daily Pennsylvanian in the fall of my first year, I despised speaking on the phone.

He eventually told my club leader that he couldn’t understand me in the voicemail. After the incident, I begged my parents to make all doctor and dentist appointments for me. I stopped calling anyone important.
