I have learned a lot from 299. Namely, research skills, how to be dedicated to a topic, proper writing and citation style, how to blog, what a lit review is, etc. I’ve also improved my writing quality, editing skills and speech delivery. This class has definitely prepared me for 485, and (somewhat) helped me narrow […]

This xc thing was much more than I bargained for. I was a little surprised at the format; in some ways I think that having people read quotes added, and in some ways it detracted from the presentation. Same goes for the interspersion of music, although I really wanted to sing all the verses of […]

Because I’m using this newspaper as my primary source, I have to read through each edition, which is quite painstaking. But without having gone […]
The first paragraph is 100% true. I did go to the Colts game, but I didn’t get upgraded seats, unfortunately.
This summer in Montana I hiked the Highline Trail and climbed Mt. Gould with some friends. Once we had gone the six miles to Mt. Gould and begun climbing, Molly and I got separated from the three others. They were way ahead of us, and the last time we saw them, they were tiny specks […]

Gordon’s essay is a mix of her own ideas, backed by the scholarship of […]
