2012 Winter Issue 2 (January 20, 2012)
It’s been a bit of an up and down week; things got cold, and grocery shopping got much more daunting for those of us lacking a car. On the other hand, on my first time eating in the LDC I noticed a very welcome change, in the form of display platters of such things as eggplant, potatoes, and onions. Maple syrup goes with everything.
Greetings Carleton! Let me begin by introducing myself: My name is Matthew Fitzgerald and I am a sophomore and tentative religion major. I hail from the great plains of Minnesota and ended up here by a twist of fate that has turned out to one of the sweetest surprises.
I’m currently sitting at my desk in my room in Evans. As I write this, I still have a page-long assignment to finish before 8:15 tomorrow morning and four pages left to write of a five-page paper. Ten minutes ago I finished a 700-word op-ed for another campus publication; before that I sent in an internship application that I had worked on for a few hours.
