Bwog Pre-frosh profiles: Arianna

Written by

 

Sure pre-frosh can be a little irritating, but their idealism and eagerness can be charming… right? For 2012, Arianna was courageous enough to jump-start the pre-frosh profiles.


Hometown: Paukakalo, Maui, Hawaii

Prospective Major: Sustainable Development, International Relations, Political Science, History

Prospective Dorm: John Jay or Carman (I am still torn, but recently I have wanted a single)

How long do you think it’ll take you to lose your…

Dignity? This is a bit tricky, because I generally don’t care what anyone thinks of me. So as far as my dignity is concerned, I may have already lost it or I will never lose it or possibly I have never had it.

Moral compass? I have a pretty strong hold on my moral compass, so hopefully never.

Sanity? I am already ridiculously crazy.

2010 had the myspace, 2011 dominated on facebook, but 2012 went above and beyond, ED on facebook. Does this milestone make you proud?

I would not say I am particularly proud, but with one of my friends’ encouragement, I joined the facebook group 45 minutes after I found out, so I am definitely a part of the group’s enormous success. To be honest, joining the group oddly made my going to Columbia next year a reality. I am completely addicted to procrastinating on the internet, so seeing the growth and activeness of the CC ’12 group made me feel comforted that my future classmates have my same vice. The group has actually made me slightly pessimistic about next year because people’s comments seem sort of lame. I hate it when people abbreviate excessively such as “how r u?” and “lmao” and I want to vomit whenever someone writes “;)”.  At first I found it humorous that a bunch of 2011 kids were sarcastically giving advice, but then it sort of made me sad that the current freshman at Columbia have nothing better to do than haze younglings.

How many of the Lit Hum books have you already read? Or are planning to read?

In my world history and literature courses I have already read excepts from The Iliad, The Odyssey, Oresteia, Oedipus Rex, Genesis, Aeneid, Confessions, Inferno, Decameron and two summers ago I read Pride and Prejudice. I was not intending on prereading any books, but from this question I guess I probably should . . .   Maybe I will read Crime and Punishment.  A few yeas back my ex boyfriend read that book for his senior novel and to complement his reading we also rented it.  The version that we rented was terrible, it would switch from subtitles to dubbing frequently and at the oddest times.  Now I am looking forward to renting that dreadful film again and sharing it with my new peers.  I will probably also read Don Quixote, Hamlet, and To The Lighthouse.


What are you doing with the rest of your senior year?

My first thought was “drinking liquor, drunk, smoking weed”, but I guess because I am not a member of Three 6 Mafia, those will not exclusively be my only activities.  My second thought was “sex on the beaches . . .” even continuing to all of Peaches raunchy lyrics, but that too is probably not what I am only going to do. In reality I will probably not change my daily habits very much, but my mentality might relax.  I hate being cliché, but I have the urge to scream out “Carpe diem!” I truly want to live my life to the fullest, appreciating Maui and my current friendships as much as I can.  Also instead of only doing homework on Sundays, I am going to devote the first half of every Sunday to going to the beach or on a hike.

You’re from Hawaii, have you ever heard of Anton Glamb (myspace.com/antonglamb)?

No, I have never heard of him. I am not madly in love with the tunes, but they are ok. I would be more impressed if he was from Maui. Oahu sucks, I only feel pride for Maui specifically, and even on Maui I feel prejudice against super touristy places such as Lahaina and Kihei.

    Sum quid eris.

  3. cu 2008  

    so many jewish girls...so little time.

  4. what does

    Arianna say after eating lunch at Tom's?

    That was a Fein berger!

  5. Dear Bwog,

    Who the fuck cares?

  6. as a...

    as a current Columbia student suffering from terminal cancer, let me just give Arianna one piece of advice: you will get cancer.

  7. no wonder...

    wow, a hot, smart jewish girl from hawaii, columbia admissions really hit the jackpot with her

  8. um...

    "those will not exclusively be my only activities?" tell me her parents are big donors...

  9. EAL

    She's a stickler for good grammar. That already makes her better than, say, 80% of the Internet. I like her!

    Congratulations Arianna and welcome to Columbia!

  10. anton fan  

    Glamb is the man

  11. positive comments

    clearly her or her friends. get real.

  12. Sorry but..

    that was kind of boring.

  13. alexw  

    "I am completely addicted to procrastinating on the internet"

    Welcome to Columbia. You will fit in well.

  14. Was there

    Any point to this post, other than allowing her an outlet to show off her tan?

  15. yawm

    Since when was sustainable development a major??

  16. these posts

    about 2012 aren't bad...but there're so many...why is bwog so interested in them?

  17. can we

    maybe have a post about a seas prefrosh? I'm really tired from hearing about sustainable development and underwater basketweaving. I think it'd be hilarious to have a stereotypical SEAS interview.

  18. current students

    I'm more interested in reading profiles of actual Columbia students on campus than people that aren't here yet.

    And 2011 had ED on facebook. Duh! Sorry 2012, nothing new.

  19. anton glamb

    take the subway!

  20. hey

    hey post #28, do you "only true become a columbian" when you have the grammar of a preschooler?

  21. ehhh

    not that hot, considering these are probably her hottest pictures.

  22. ED facebook

    All these ED 11s and 12s...get some viagara...that'll solve your problem

  23. Hahahaha

    Way to talk about drinking and smoking weed you stupid prefrosh. That's going to follow you around for the rest of your life thanks to the GOOGLE.

  24. Also

    Renting a movie to complement a reading? Jesus Christ.

  25. but

    she is hot. and she is from hawaii. and she's jewish. i think i may have just found a way to make myself and my mother happy!

  26. I didn't

    even know there were Jews in Hawaii.

  27. major major  

    sustainable development is a major, but she's as bad as barack -- "international relations" isn't!

  28. surprise!  

    People are shallow.

  29. Anonymous

    kinda hot but sounds really boring. but jewish is a plus.

  30. mmm

    wow. Check her out on Facebook- you're right about these being her hottest pictures. And she seems pretty shallow to me.

    Maybe big donor parents is right.

  31. she's shallow?

    did you read what you just wrote?

  32. ummmm

    i don't think it would matter if she was boring or not because BWOG asked her the most boring questions imaginable. "how many of the lit hum books have you read?" how is she supposed to come up with an interesting answer to that?

  33. man

    most people here are basically good people, even all ya'll, except you're on the internet anonymously

  34. can we...

    get some engineers, bwog??

  35. Albert

    She's really not that hot, and she's obviously not very intelligent. Can we get a refund?

  36. hmm

    are we talking hot by jewish standards or in general? because i don't think she's hot at all in general but if you're just talking about jewish girls i wouldn't know i have no idea.

  37. call me

    ignorant but what is Facebook ED?

  38. Ocho

    A hot Jewish girl from Hawaii is not so inconceivable. Kim Davidson CC09, just as hot, Hawaiian and Jewish

  39. ...

    this is pathetic. who cares if she's hot? she stepped up to the plate as the first pre-frosh profile, give the girl a break!

  40. askjdhakjfh

    she looks like maebe from arrested development
