Transcript of Living and Learning at IWU

Hmm, it's difficult to summarize myself with such short notice; however, I do always say "My heart and mind are my own; they take in the world, but they decide what they think on their own. I am not a part of someone else - I am myself, and only myself: the thoughts, actions, subconscious, conscious, and potential that extends throughout time and that can never truely be defined. I love the world, and I love its people, but that does not mean that I do not fall into frustration over the lack of effort to fulfill one's potential within the world and inside themselves." Now a clusstered list: I can be detached as well as passionate, and I have been told that I am wise and intelligent, but I always claim that such terms are ambiguous and relative, and there is always someone better at something than I am--I'm just me, with my talents and difficulties. I confront everything with logic and heart, but I reveil very little. I am always honest, even harshly so, so my words weigh heavily. I'm always willing to talk about anything--the more serious the better--and present my opinion or advice. Yes, I'm willing to take others' hardships, but I'm less likely to place mine on others, since I know myself down to most impulses and believe that I may manage myself; however, if I feel the need, I may reach out. I'm eccentric and don't adhere to social convention, so finding me covered in paint or sleeping at 4pm shouldn't be surprising. Dark humor and irony amuse me. I have a large, yet unnusual, vocabulary, speak in contractions and poetic prose, and treat people as if they are capible of understanding me (here, I'm repressing my desire to speak in such a manner, purely because I don't know you and want you to get the most out of this). I abhor ignorance, but define it as the rejection of one's potential to seek out information, view things from alternative perpectives, and grow. If I am available, I am willing to help you study, look over your work, or just in general, but I will not do anything for you that I believe would benefit you. Besides all of that, be as to me as you wish for me to be unto you.

“Programming in a college environment serves primarily as a growth experience. Programming gives an opportunity to grow through pursuing outside interests, socializing, and the sharing of ideas. Programming brings people together through new friendships… From programming, a sense of community may be established, and from within this community, members may better reflect upon themselves.”
