Microsoft came to campus some time ago for a recruiting drive. I knew that my odds were low but I wanted the experience, and no matter what the odds are, there is still a chance. Talking to the recruiter went very smoothly; I liked talking to him and he liked talking to me. He made […]
I will admit that this is the first time my ass has been sore. Still, going 8-2 against the other fencing students was worth it. Also, thankfully, rock climbing only seems to destroywork out my forearms and hands, leaving the glutes and lower free for fencing to mangle.
I went into this semester resolved to take a gym class of some sort. Not because there was some requirement, not to get extra credits, but just because the opportunity was there. I had always had an interest in fencing, but never joined the fencing club that started up the end of my last year […]
Unconsciously giving a Southern drawl to a West Indies plantation owner during a play reading in Writing 150 was totally unexpected but surprisingly fun once I realized what I was doing.

Getting out of school a month before your brother does and three weeks before your summer classes start leaves you with a lot of free time. I tried new games and tossed them away, tried old games and tossed them away, used Flash to make text glint, started reading military science fiction again, and visited […]
I’ve been an idiot for the past semester and a half, but I’m coming back to BU with a fresh batch of resolve. (Even though I spent a little too long dallying with the last bit of the title.)
From Always Excel: Campus Markers and the Purpose of Boston University As students at Boston University, we are expected to learn many things before we enter that right of passage called graduation… Mathematics may be used to rob a bank; chemistry used to kill; penmanship may be used to forge a check; psychology may be […]
