College Life Part 18: I Write, Therefore I Am…
(C)..a college student
My answer could be any of these but since I haven’t been writing any articles as of late the response is C. I write so much at school about so many interesting topics but it’s not doing it for me. I miss writing stories. I want to write about what I want to write about and as long as I am in school I can’t. As I write this blog entry I am in the midst of trying to finish yet another paper. This one is on homosexuality and analyzing the amount of agency one has in regard to sexuality and gender. It’s sort of a summation of the semester’s work while simultaneously analyzing a film we watched. The film was quite disturbing. It referred to homosexuality as sexual brokenness. Words are so powerful. The words we choose to use when speaking, when writing, when thinking, truly reveal our perspectives and ideologies whether we are aware of it or not.
It’s finals week, so you won’t be hearing from me for a while…but I shall return better than ever, re-invigorated once I reach the city that recharges me.
I have a tip to leave you with if you are trying to stay positive during the last tolling weeks of the semester. Listen to MUSIC. And, not just any music. During finals week I listen to a combination of Gospel songs and Old School classics. And when I say old school I do not mean 90′s hip hop, I mean the classics of your grandparent’s era: Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Fontella Bass and The Jackson 5. I do not know what it is but it’s something about that music that just keeps me positive and keeps me going! Oh yea, and you might want to listen to Brooklyn Go Hard once in a while, maybe when you are walking to class to put that battery in your back!

Remember they are called finals for a reason. They are the final assignments you need in order to reach the END.
