Anarchy and the Law

On Tuesday I attended the Student Leadership Collective dinner on campus. Six students gave short talks on a wide variety of topics, from the South Korean protests against US beef to voter suppression to how the adversarial system is destroying the social fabric. One student tried to reconcile being an anarchist with being a lawyer, […]


The snow has been coming down heavy since I woke up this morning.  Both my classes were canceled.  Don’t get too overexcited.  This just means they were rescheduled.  One is rescheduled for tomorrow so now I have four classes tomorrow.  Another was rescheduled so that I will have a back-to-back 2.5 hour class next Wednesday. […]


My body is exhausted.  If only I had all my work done, today would be the perfect lazy Sunday.  Yesterday, I went snowshoeing with some friends at Sugarbush.  It was our first time and it was amazing.  It took us a while to find the trails we were supposed to be on and we ended […]

Second Semester

Well, here we go again.  The vacation was nice, but I was bored out of my mind most of it because I got so used to being constantly busy that I forgot what free time was.  This semester started a lot like first semester, nervousness about meeting new professors, apprehension of how the professors would […]

Inauguration Day

I’ve been meaning to post since I got back from winter break, but I feel like I’m running to stand still the last few weeks. Part of this feeling stems from poor time management on my part – I spent last weekend cross-country skiing in northern New Hampshire, and the weekend before that in Montreal […]

Of Ice and Class

Well, we are back to the grind. I cannot hide the fact that I am not enthusiastic about the start of this semester. The winter break did not seem nearly long enough. It seems like just a few days ago that I stepped off the plane at home in Durango, Colorado, kissed the dirty, nasty […]


It’s the start of our first full week of the spring semester and I’m feeling pretty good.  I did pretty well in all of my classes although I’m the type of person that always wants all As.  I have to come to terms with the fact that that won’t happen most likely.  Two of my […]

First Week

The first week of classes or should I say a day of classes went by very quickly.  Even though I only had one class, I realized that I felt that I should be preparing more for my classes and looking further into the reasoning of the opinions I was reading.  I went out of town […]

Back in SoRo

So the ride back from Michigan wasn’t too bad.  It took me about 13 hours minus all the stopping.  I’m back in South Royalton just getting everything ready before the semester starts.  I am hoping to get my books today or tomorrow.  I will also be heading up to Stowe tomorrow to re-teach myself how […]
