Where are you going? As of now unclear. I’m trying to get my Toby Ziegler on and find a political PR job in D.C.
Three things you learned at Columbia:
1. Orientation week is awkward.
2. If you hit shift and highlight you can print more than one document at once. Magical!
3. Pillow-fights can be very dangerous, approach them with caution.
“Back in my day…”Columbiatch t-shirts were all the rage.
Justify your existence in 30 words or fewer: I currently hold the high score in mini basketball at the Harlem Chuck-E-Cheese. A bunch of kids tried to challenge me but I went out on top.
Is the War on Fun over? Who won? Any war stories? That’s actually a very timely question! CUIT just reprimanded me for “allegedly” downloading Beyonce’s “I am…Sasha Fierce Album.” First of all, their charges are totally, completely, 100% false. Second of all, making me take a quiz on copyright law is not going to help anything. Basically, Columbia, please stop fighting fun, and stop trying to get in between me and Beyonce.
Would you rather give up oral sex or cheese? Cheese rarely lets me down.
Advice for the class of 2015: I know, I know, you’re all super impressive. It was even harder for you to get in here than it was for me! Just try and leave a little bit of your obsessive-compulsiveness behind in high-school. Being stressed is usually a choice. If you try not to start every sentence with how much work you have, that alone can do wonders for your mental health.
Any regrets? Two words: Raw Elementz. Wish I’d had the guts to try out and not just learn their choreography all alone in my room.
