A Real Hero

(05/08/98 9:00am)

After almost four years of getting annoyed at every editorial I read in The Dartmouth, either for their lack of content or because the content was extremely offensive or irritating, I have decided that instead of complaining, I'm going to write about something that is important to me. Hopefully, it will make at least one person in our community think.

Musings on Mother's Day

(05/08/98 9:00am)

With Mother's Day fast approaching, I was just thinking about how my relationship with my mother has changed since I arrived at the College. Before college, my mother and I were very close -- like sisters even. I was never raised with a great fear of rules or consequences, but to hear my grandmother tell it, I often "Got away with murder." I never had to rebel really, because anything I wanted to do, I was basically allowed to do. My mother trusted me, and whenever I wanted to stay out late with friends, there were never any admonishments about curfew, she would simply reply, "Well, what time do you think you will be home?"

My Independent Study

(05/08/98 9:00am)

I don't know about you, but I'm not someone who coughs very often. I only cough when I'm choking on a french fry (which happens often given my "Zone" diet) or when I'm deathly ill. Other than that, I just don't do it. I don't get sick very often. Maybe I live a phlegm-deprived life. But today I'm in a room full of people who continuously feel the need to violently expel air from their lungs.

Print in Black Ink Only

(05/07/98 9:00am)

So recently I applied for a job where I was required to send in a set of my fingerprints. Let me clarify: new fingerprints. Not the ones the hospital took of me when I was just a few days young. Not the prints my mother has lying on a shelf in our basement in a baby book. The FBI needs to run a check on my almost 22-year-old soon-to-be Dartmouth graduate finger prints.

The Bricks vs. the Green

(05/07/98 9:00am)

As a part of the construction of Berry Library, the big elm tree that stood at the northeast corner of Baker was recently cut down. It was an American elm much older than Baker itself, a grand old tree that we've all walked by many times whether or not we ever noticed its existence. There was a small amount of protest from Hanover residents over the taking of the tree, but the final decision to cut was made since the tree probably would not have survived construction without library blueprints being altered. The fact that Berry was essentially designed on top of this tree got me to thinking about how we value living things in general.
