College Twilight Zone

By:

I’m a believer in equilibrium: Nature abhors a vacuum. People never change. The pendulum swings back and forth. My faith in stasis, however, doesn’t prevent me from having an existential crisis every time I have to make a decision. Four years ago, choosing a college satisfied my need to debate inconsequential “pluses” and “minuses” of…

Downhill disaster

People assume that because I’m from northern Illinois I love snow. They fail to realize, though, that a baffling affection for flecks of frozen water is not genetically inherent just because a person happened to be born in a certain area of the country. I hate snow.

Everyone, and I mean everyone, hates the people who come back from studying abroad convinced that they have “become” Spanish or have “discovered” that they were born with a French soul. They’re the people you see at Uncommon Grounds saying things like, “Well, of course, Italian coffee is just superior to anything you can get…

I think it’s exciting when I come into a room and see a bunch of crap up on the board?stuff I know has nothing to do with the class I’m in but is just up there. It’s funny. I mean, I have to assume that there is some coherence involved, that these words actually have…
