Richmond's Own (but unowned) Website

 
 
To post or not to post? For class, we’re reading Sherry Turkle’s  Alone Together, about how we interact with technology, especially communications networks. Many people post their jobs/internships on Facebook.   I’m conflicted; I’m usually against it – but I suppose I have more social/psychological perspective now.  Yes, prospective employers may see it. But am I using a post to replace live synchronous conversation? Do I feel less accomplished than people who post? Do I need to feel the emotional response when others like my activity? Questions to answer later as I turn and seek shelter in the safety of blogging instead... 

 
 
So I’ve neglected this blog for a few months now (at least I remember the password) – but I’ve had some free time to reflect a bit on what’s been going on.  Tonight I sat in for an hour and a half listening to history about Collegetown and Cornell student organizations. Last weekend I went to a jazz concert.  Two weekends ago I sat at a table eating with Kenan Thompson (and 30 other students, but still!). So maybe my prelim schedule sucked.  And it snowed in late April. But I wouldn’t have traded my experience this semester for anything else.
