My instructor and almost my entire class is from Auburn University in Alabama. Most of them seem cool, but like WTF?! I’m in London!! I don’t want an American instructor and 19/20 American classmates. I want to meet some Brits, damnit!!
Anonymous asked: hi, sorry I was just wondering what you study at USC? I saw that that you were into creative writing and I was just wondering if you study that there cause I'm from the area was thinking about going to grad school for creative writing at USC? any thoughts?
I’m going to do my best to chronicle this adventure, but I suppose the less I write the busier I am enjoying myself. The only class I will be taking while I’m here though is creative writing so writing is good. I left Chicago on Friday evening around 5 p.m. and got to Regent’s College in London around 9 a.m. Saturday. The flight gave me about 2-3 hours of sleep, and when I...
I’m about to leave the country in 17 hours. What. I’ve never been out of the country before so I’m simultaneously ecstatic and NERVOUS AS FUCK. I’ll be going to Regent’s University in Regent’s Park in London and taking a creative writing class. Does it get any better than that? I’m really honestly actually just nervous about what to do once I get to...
Sophomore Slump Or Comeback Of The Year
My sophomore year of college has come to a close, so naturally it is time for some reflection. It has truly been an incredible year and the best way to break it down would be to, well, break it down.. School: This year I accepted the fact that I am not academically invincible and that as long as I keep my scholarships, it’s okay to get a B. I also learned that not every instructor is going...

Hey Kids, Grow a Pair: How Music Blogs Neutered... →
I’m so exhausted by this generation of watered-down, vaguely 60’s or vaguely folk, mid-tempo, non-offensive, cutesy indie music. When I was 16 or 22 I wanted to break shit. I was pissed off at an unjust world, at the indignities of high school, at my parents, at that ever-present dude who grabbed my ass at rock shows (I’m still pissed off at that dude, by the way). I don’t get it, these kids...
