Senior Year

Senior Year was by far my best year of college. My grades were superb, I had a room all to myself, the football team under the new tutelage of Tyrone Willingham, was 10-2, and to crown it all off, the fencing team won the national championship, and I get a ring out of it! It […]

Juggler

so… i’m – aahh – i had a poem in the student literary magazine, The Juggler. does that make me a published poet? or does it have to count elsewhere? can i call myself a poet now or is that still premature? i was also inducted into the lambda alpha beta chapter of the Anthropology […]

Sophomore Year 2001-2002

this year was my second best in college, mostly due to being on the fencing team, which let me expel my – excess – energies. i also declared my majors, Anthropology and Film & Television, and got firmly into the swing of my classes. First semester I got a pity D in my Classical Greek […]

Freshman Year 1999-2001

This is supposed to be the toughest year of college, and in terms of intellectual growth that rings true. Although personal/social growth would also top this list if not for my Junior year. That comes later however. I suppose I was a bit scared about going to college and living in an 8? x 14? […]

Papers

with four relatively decent sized papers looming over me this easter weekend i am staying on campus for the duration. the papers are due as follows April 24th – Film Theory – 8-10 pages. I’m writing on how class structures are assumed into racial identities and how that plays into film spectatorship in Spike Lee’s […]

Hit the Fan

it hit the fan today in poetry class, but i do not feel vilified. what i wanted was discussion and by gum i got it. some few were offended, most discussed what exactly i was going for, ranging from satire to prima nocta rights. some wanted me to make the ending different to acknowledge my […]

HORK!

i’ve been getting emails from the class i dropped lately. apparently, the group i had signed up to do a presentation with at the beginning of the year had not realized i dropped the class over a month ago. i’ve been reveling in their email struggles to set up a time to meet with my […]

Debt

i received a notice in the mail the other day explaining to me just how much money i owe the federal government for my Stafford loans. now i feel like a true adult, because i have something resembling adult size debt. discussing this with real adults has led me to conclude that debt only grows, […]

Round and Round We Go

round and round we go. i’m dropping my Fictions of Insanity class. but if i drop it i’ll be two credits short for graduationg. so i’m picking up a 2cred Sociology class that starts in april. in order to do this i had to call the institute for latino studies who had an open spot […]

Film Theory Grade

my Film Theory midterm was returned to me yesterday. i didn’t miss a damn point. 25/25=A. in celebration test your vocabulary. i got 161 correct. apparently that only puts me in the lower 25th percentile. i guess i’m stupid after all.
