The Owl

Madelyn Barnes

Madelyn Barnes, Arts & Entertainment Editor, Business Manager

Madelyn Barnes is finally a senior and is now faced with the real responsibilities that being an adult comes with. She is fearfully ignoring the ever-impending doom that is college applications and, instead, is choosing to learn how to crochet like the geezer she wants to be. Madelyn is excited to be a part of The Owl again and now is an Arts and Entertainment editor and Business Manager (hit me up if you want to make a sketchy transaction). She loves the hot weather—but is not a fan of global warming—and enjoys mucking about with her friends. Swimming in the rain is a newfound addiction Madelyn has (un)fortunately developed and will be moving to someplace with a beach as soon as possible. Her guilty pleasures include reading old magazines, eating ONLY green grapes, watching random niche documentaries, and encouraging her dog to take a leak in the annoying neighbor's yard.
