Well it's been almost a month since graduation and I think I'm starting to get accustomed to this whole "post-college real world thing." A few minor adjustments to my living style have changed and I'm learning as I go. For example, I've learned that my parents aren't as cool as my roommates were with me waking up passed out next to the fire pit with a empty fifth of Jack Honey in my hand, but other than that the past month as "The Living in my Parent's Basement-ite" has gone swimmingly. Literally. They were none to pleased when I fell out of my kayak either. According to them, no, the fishies do not want a sip of my gin and tonic.
Anyways, this blog is not dead... yet. I have one more final post in the works, but until then, I give you some of my personal favorite posts/moments in the history of the University of Nonsensical Happenings. Picking these was a lot harder than I expected and I'm sure I missed some, but it was nice looking back over the last few years. In no particular order, let's take a gander, shall we?
The events last fall surrounding the Gables and Woodsides quiet hours being restored. I had a handful of posts on this and, not to toot my own horn, I think it's safe to say my column in TNH, which caught the attention of housing and my subsequent meeting with them got the ball rolling. Soon after my meeting housing reissued a new survey and quickly restored the original quite hours.
My post on the hazing incident with CommUNHiversity. What I loved about this was how a reader/tipster stepped up and helped me get the PDF of the file report and it led to some intersting comments.This also showed how hazing (no matter the level of it) isn't just restricted to Greek Life.
My Surviving UNH tab. I spent some time one summer to put this together by combining past posts and columns and well as original content. I think it was around 14 pages in word when I first posted it. I've revised parts of it several times and I think it is my most useful work on this blog.
Remember when that Womyn's group wanted to hold a porn burning? That was amazing and so were the comments that it led too...
I don't think I have ever written something this great, but finding it on Craigslist was amazing.
UNH Media Relations Carlos Mencia-ing me with the "Paul Thompson for Hobey Baker" video.
Because forts are awesome. Not so much about the post, but the epic times that we had in this. Kinda more of an insider for my roommates and close friends.
And who can forget all my encounters with dining, the interesting Stephenson Billings and also my recent Q&As with some hockey players were also quite interesting.
Until next time - one last time-
Stay Classy, not UMassy.
(I will have one more post eventually!)
