Another Perspective on Race

(11/23/98 11:00am)

As long as I can remember, exceptionalism has been the rule in my family. My parents struggled, against much resistance, to inculcate in me a strong sense of difference. At 10 years of age, the subject of contention was sleepovers. At 15, curfews. And still now, at 21 years of age, the sense of filial obligation is a constant in my life and in the conversations I have with my parents, particularly when we disagree. Faced with the difficult task of sustaining a close relationship with my parents from thousands of miles away, I've had to confront the schizophrenia (no, I'm not nuts) and sense of loss resulting from dislocation. Above all, what never ceases to amaze me is the increasing cognizance I have of difference.

The Carefree Life of an FSPer

(11/20/98 11:00am)

I love my FSP. I've been in Scotland for more than six weeks, so when I add the two weeks I spent travelling before I got here, I get a total of eight weeks in Europe. Wow, how the weeks fly past when you're having the time of your life. The entire two months seem like a highlight film, but I'll try to pick out some of my favorite moments. Building a snowman in the Swiss Alps, cooking a campfire lunch on a hill overlooking LochNess, gazing at the statue of David and eating a nutella-filled crepe on the way to the Eiffel Tower are probably at the top of my very long list.
