Anonymous asked: How can you possibly miss LC???
I’m actually still at LC, and I have another year left. But every time I leave, yes, I do miss it.
Here’s why: I focus all of my time here on my work, my relationships, and my sorority - the three things that I love more than anything I have ever loved in my entire life.
A lot of people complain that the work is too hard (or simply that they don’t want to do it because it’s college and they want to have a good time), but what I do is what I want to do, so how could I possibly hate that? I found what I like and it happened to also be what I’m good at, so I went with it. I pride myself on high academic standards, and LC promotes that as well.
My friendships (in and apart from my sorority) are the closest, most meaningful relationships I’ve ever had with other human beings. Without having met some of these people I now call my closest friends, I would not be the person I am today. I made a huge personal leap, introduced myself to groups of people I didn’t know, and met some of the smartest, brightest, funniest, kindest, craziest people I’ve ever known. Some of them graduated today, and it was simultaneously one of the happiest and saddest days of my life because they had such a huge influence on my life that it’s terrible to think I can’t keep them as close anymore.
I found a family here who shared my values, learn from faculty who genuinely seek to inspire their students, and have become a leading, charitable, intelligent, funny (arguable), easy-going woman because of it.
So when I leave LC and miss it, it’s because I made my own way here. I didn’t expect LC to just give me anything. I worked for all of it and was rewarded beyond my dreams.
I’m sorry if you didn’t have a good time at LC, but don’t condescend to tell me that my experience isn’t worthy of my love.
Anonymous asked: Which courses/electives did you take in your first year of university/college? In your English major :)
I actually was an International Relations Major my first year in college and switched later in my second year. BUT, the courses you typically take are introductory courses (which seems a little silly at times, but if you got decent scores on AP or IB tests in high school, you can skip a few). At my school there are a few core courses we have to take despite AP/IB, which was basically Introduction to Literary Theory, Literary Criticism, and our final Capstone. The other requirements are taking Period classes as well as classes based on your emphasis (literature or writing), so far I’ve taken Golden Age Literature (which was a lot of Ben Johnson type people), Gender and Literature, Shakespeare, Creative Writing, Victorian Literature, and am taking more next year. But that’s the basics - don’t wanna bore anyone.
P.S. I love talking about English (and myself), so don’t be anon!!! <3
Thank you for the live Facebook updates of your illness today.

My, isn’t it awkward that you just fuckin recycled a nearly 40 year old article to shit on this latest generation?
But I do want to say:
Of all the images you could have picked, you chose one of a teenage girl taking a selfie.
Because of course, girls who have been taught nothing else by their elders except that their appearance is what matters are the reason we are all lazy and narcissistic.
Fuck off. You fucking made us. You raised me and my sister and my female cousin and millions and millions of girls to be self-conscious and obsessed with making ourselves look pleasing to men. You taught us that that was our only worth. And now you shit on us for it.
FUCK OFF, TIME.
