For me, winter break wasn't just a welcome relief from daily 9 AM classes and late nights studying the proper conjugation of French verbs--it was also an opportunity to make some extra money. Outside of writing for this blog and the Coyote, all the other stuff I'm involved in on campus has been strictly on a non-paying, volunteer basis. And as fun as it is taking pictures at Campus Ministries events, I couldn't pay for Christmas gifts with happy feelings and nifty portraits.
So, my summer is a little different compared to the last two years. My mom just finished moving from Boise out to Caldwell. Aside from school, I've lived in Boise since I was 2 years old. I'm currently paying rent at my Fraternity house, and now more than ever, I really feel that Caldwell is my home.
Many opportunities come across the life of our College students,it’s just a question of how and why should an opportunity be seized.Winter and Spring semesters of my junior year helped provide an answer.
During those two semesters I interned at a Department of Defense affiliated strategic studies center focusing on the Near East and South Asia. How, might you ask, did I come across such an outstanding opportunity? Initiative, commitment, and The Washington Center (TWC) sum-up the answer.
Last night I had the worst dream ever. In it, I could not perform normally. It took place in my job, Pizza Hut. A table ordered drinks, and as I went to the back to fulfill their request, I found it impossible to serve a simple Mountain Dew and water.
How do I start off this magical nexus of thought issued solely by yours truly? How should I begin to construct the fountain of brilliance and intrigue that will captivate the minds and hearts of prospective students, current students, alumni, parents and professors?
