    This will be more autobiographical than anything...I enjoy music, the outdoors, people, Magic the Gathering, skateboarding, video games, independent movies, Twizzlers, NutRageous, languages (romantic languages, Germanic, Asiatic, Nordic) and general relaxation techniques such as yoga, breathing and sleeping. I'm pretty into meeting new people too sooooo lets play some video games sometime.

state of the onion

Well hello! I thought you all might like to learn about how I stay sane during the school year! Well. 35 cent wing nights at burrito union really helps, but more so than that I like to garden, be active, and hang out in the forest. Now its gettin colder and colder so I go to the forest less and less, but it’ll be there in spring. The couple acres of forest on campus is called the valley of Silence, allegedly named in honor of a prospector, John Silence who died in an accident when the stone for Tower hall was quarried. It is a place that speaks of awe and inspiration without saying a word. I love it.
My garden just happens to be indoors, we moved in long after spring so we haven’t got much outside save for what was here already, which aint bad. Buuut we have a sweet garlic plant growing, we have 2 bushels of rosemary, a dying baby sumac, a vine from Maine I believe, that one belongs to Carl in addition, we have several types of moss cultivated in our greenroom-area. One of which we harvested from the rooftop of a building downtown, the others are from an area of the Superior hiking trail known as Chester park. I don’t think that’s illegal to take moss… But if it is and you are a law enforcement official Ill put it back where I found it, I promise. Oh yeah and Carl has an aloe plant, but I think that was here when we moved in perhaps…
Staying active! I usually walk to school every day, which takes about 45-60 minutes depending on the route. Its beautiful to walk along the Superior hiking trail at 9am when no one else is around. Other than walking, I used to play a lot of socccer, but my intermural team was DQd for having a non CSS (more like ex-CSS) student play for us. In one game. 🙁 oh well, we’ll get them next year.
