    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.

If only, if only, the woodpecker sighs

the wood on the trees was as soft as the skies.

The wolf waits below, hungry and lonely

and cries to the sky if only if only


Lets talk about homework (yay!). Last night I had to complete 4 pages of a Spanish homework packet, and read 3 short stories and journal 1/2 page about them for my intro to English literature course. Not bad for an average night. Two nights ago I was up reading 40 pages of a chapter for my US Foreign Policy class, my favorite The night before that I was up until 12:30 reading documents from Qing Dynasty China, and woke up early to read even more about it so I could write my 3 page single space QQTP’s (question, quote, and talking points), in addition to more English and Spanish work than you can shake a stick at. In a hilarious turn of events, even though I was up doing English work all day and night, my wonderful teacher emailed the class to cancel our session. Isn’t life grand? Its things like this that get me up out of bed in the morning, ready to shuck the worlds oyster.
The semester is in full swing now, and life is back to some semblance of normal. Its been a rainy past few days, and my roommate is sick. So last night we watched James Bond – For Your Eyes Only on netflix, because all he cares to watch is old James Bond movies. The new ones for some reason, their cinematography is just too much for a Bond movie in my humble opinion. But what do I know. I also don’t like that newest Bond, Daniel Radcliffe or whatever.
The first issue of our school newspaper came out last week, yours truly made the cover. Nothing serious. And the activities fair was last week as well, I had to table for 2 groups, Amnesty Int’l and History and Politics club. Ive been part of Amnesty since I was a freshman, and H&P just got me this year since its a brand new club. Amnesty probably the coolest club on campus, because we put on the BIGGEST events at CSS. For example, my freshman year they put on a life sized refugee camp on school grounds for an education campaign, and every year we go to the Amnesty General meeting, which switches locations every year; we’ve gone to Chicago, New Orleans, and San Francisco among others. Among other awesome things. History and politics is brand new, so when we have our first meeting we will decide how awesome our club is going to be. Im genuinely excited. Call me a dork. Its true.
