Done with first college class

what an exciting class :D

we learned all about war. (but of course not everything)

-culture, media, strategy, insurgency, counterinsurgency, alternatives to war.

now I have even more to rant about!

My first college experience wasn't as challenging as I expected academically. It was sometimes difficult because I'm kind of directly connected to these issues through.

I wonder how I will change b/c of Iraq? (it'll probably make me even more wimpy than basic training has made me)

(gah)

But I met some really cool people here and I would have liked to stay longer and have an actual 4 year college experience...but thats not possible (tear). I am kind of attracted to the idea of going to school in the city (Chicago) for the rest of my college years (and beat up gangstas...yennow...>.>) but chances are I'll get really annoyed at the standard style of classes and return to Evergreen crying for shelter from the letter grades and political conservatives.

I hope you all have a great summer! I won't be seeing you guys next year also so have a great year too and I hope it will be better than this year has been for some of you. And I might not be seeing you the year after that either, and for people that are graduating in one or two years maybe never again. But I'm glad we've met.

Wow! Your life has definitely changed a lot since the last time we talked/onlined. XD;; You joined the army? That's really cool-- had you been thinking about it for a while? Are you only taking classes for the summer?

War and international law and blowing things up have generally been the focuses of what I've been studying recently, too. Do you know at all when or where you'll be going?

Either way, take care. Regardless of the political situation there are always ways you can make the lives of the people around you better.

My life has been far less dramatic. I'm working in Washington DC this summer with Senator Kerry's office, which has been really cool thus far, and graduating in the winter.
