The first month of the spring semester always is a very exciting time for me. Combined with the New Year, I always make a resolution to live life to the fullest during the next semester.
This past summer, I worked as a historic interpreter at Fort Mackinac on Mackinac Island. Dressed up as a soldier who would have been stationed there in the 1880s, I spent the summer shooting rifles, muskets and cannons for visitors.
One of my roommates, Pat, isn’t someone who is very vocal about being disappointed too often. However, I vividly remember the beginning of our freshman year, when Pat was livid about losing a bumper sticker he had gotten for free. The bumper sticker, which Pat claims was stolen by one of our friends, was from the Green Party, and it read: “Make love, not war.”
Not much bothers me more than when people tell me: “A vote for anyone other than Romney is a vote for Obama” or that I am “wasting my vote voting third party.”
K-I-F, kif. With those three letters, weeks of trust were broken forever.
