I’ve been institutionalized, and I’m quite happy to be that way. College has opened my eyes to so many things. Plate tectonics, John Stuart Mill, journalism, politics – I am constantly aware of what’s going on in the world. I have access to unconditional resources, friendly critical feedback, and a comfortable and supportive atmosphere in which I can express myself openly, after all, every opinion is welcomed. I am reluctant to leave, but I can no longer afford to stick around.

The daunting task of locating a job continues. I have sent out about 10 resumes in two weeks, and from what I hear, that’s not nearly enough. Whatever I find, mark my words, I will have weekends off.

I’m still expecting something to happen that will prevent me from graduating this May.
