Campus Life

Writing, or the thing that I do between long spurts of procrastination, is a unique process. It's so unique that everyone does it a little differently, but it's basics reign universal. We all write. We all put the pencil down and eat a sandwich. We all hit the wall. We all get too drunk and pass out before writing down that great idea. 

Personally, I write for class, money, experience, and most of all for the love of the game. I've written billions of characters over the years. Everything from movie reviews to poems (mostly awful poems) to award-winning sports columns. Let's hold it right there before this gets too pretentious, as I already am writing in public like a terrible aspiring screenplay writer living off his parents after college paying $4.68 for a cup of coffee at Starbucks. Well, not totally in public as the blogging in the Student Center is done in a back room to get the mother's basement feel that all us bloggers need. 

Anywhoo, that's it for me. And remember, writers, it's alright to go outside. Well, every now and then.
