major from North Middlesex Regional High School, Townsend, Mass.
memory from freshman year: My favorite memory was in the
fall semester. It had been raining for a couple of days, and I mean
nonstop. I was just getting back from classes to my dorm to find
everyone was pretty much just all out in the rain — as if
their life depended on it or something. We were all just horsing
around, and somehow, I can't explain it, we all decided, about 20
of us, to mud wrestle. It was hilarious seeing everyone covered
in mud from head to foot in a matter of seconds. I took some pictures.
We all cleaned up in the street, with the flowing water, because
they wouldn’t allow any of us in until we were clean. The
irony of it all.
thing about having a roommate: I swear I had the best roommate
in the world. She was a very chipper person who took joy in everything,
and her attitude actually rubbed off on me. It was nice knowing
that if my alarm didn’t work or wake me up that she was always
a dependable backup. We were always there for each other without
getting on each other’s nerves.
about home: I missed being able to boss my younger brothers
around and basically being the queen of my domain. I’m the
oldest and it’s kind of weird not having to take care of the
person I’m living with. I missed my mom’s cooking and
the occasional few dollars I could scrape up from my parents, but
I was going to be OK without that. I just wasn’t ready for
the reality check.
spot on campus: I loved the courtyards behind Bruce Hall
— the vines growing all over, the grass. It was so very relaxing
band: I’ve been in love with Led Zeppelin since I
can remember — probably because my dad loved their music so
much. There’s always a song they have that I can identify
with at any point in my life. They’re my security blanket
book: I would definitely have to go with The Giver
by Lois Lowry. I read it in sixth grade and have read it every year
since. It teaches me that I don’t have to conform to society
and that everyone has their own quirks — basically that not
everyone is the same and we all have to accept that instead of trying
to force some people to conform to make ourselves feel better.
