(mental note to self:  do not eat all your meals before wednesday.  a small breakfast on friday is not worth going hungry on wednesday)

On a related note, if any apartment xangacholics are reading this, and realise they are sitting near a full fridge that needs to be emptied before the end of the year; invitie me over for lunch (or dinner).  Have mercy on the underclassman who are slaves to ARA and a meal plan, share out of your bounty.

Even if you don’t know me well, i will eat your food.  Have you always wanted a date with Andy Meyer, but were afraid to ask? This is the perfect excuse to spend some quality one-on-one time with the one of the most available sophomores attending north park.  Think this whole post is a joke?  Invite me over and find out.

Hungrily yours,

Andy

Who wants to go to a juggling festival?  (Besides me that is)

I am looking for a ride this weekend to a juggling festival up in the ‘burbs.  It promise that it will be an entertaining experience.  If you need more information, check out the website. Juggling festivals are an amazing way to spend a weekend, engrossed in a unique subculture.  I leave thee with this:

(technology is amazing!)

Here is the thing that some people do that I always thought was cool.  You answer all the questions with song titles from your favorite band.  My favorite band being U2, my answers are thus:

Are you Male or Female: Boy (not a song but an album)

Describe Yourself: In God’s country

Describe your ex boyfriend/girlfriend: The first time (?)

Describe the Person you Love: I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.

Describe How you feel about the Opposite Sex: Desire

Describe Where you Want to Be: Where the streets have no name

Describe What You Want To Be: Even better than the real thing.

Describe Your Biggest Mistake:  Pride (in the name of love)

Describe How You Feel: Running to stand still

Share a Few Words of Wisdom: Peace on Earth

the happenings of my life:

I have fallen in love (again) with hotdogs.  I mean, they are amazing!

I realise that the world has united in a plan to get me busy, occupied, and inside on the most beautiful days of the year.  I am currently working on plan that will counteract this and in the process will but some sun on my face.

In general, life is life, it carries on and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Care about diversity on the North Park campus?  I pass along this email:

Greetings,

I would like to invite you all to C 13 on Thursday night (April 15) @ 7:00 p.m. for a time of sharing and questioning and just getting out your feelings about diversity on this campus: the things you wish the administration would tell students, the questions you have for other students, anything you think that student leaders should know. Andrew Freeman (SA President) and myself will be present to listen to what you have to say. Because, after all, we can only work for what you want if you tell us what that is. You are all invited, but we would like to stress the need to hear from the minority students – Andrew & I are, after all, pretty much white and the majority on this campus. (This, of course, not to mean that we know exactly what our fellow majority-ers think and are dealing with. Hence – ALL of you.) This fairly informal forum will simply be Andrew & I listening to what you have to say, and answering the questions that we can, and will be the pre-cursor to two more similar events in the next couple weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for more info about those. The general run-down of what they will be, though:

Monday, April 19 @ 7:00 in C 13 – Dr. Rollo Dilworth (choir director and music professor) will speak to students about his journey with diversity, and offer some encouragement for those who wish to actively pursue working with the administration and board in seeing this campus become an integrated community. Also present will be a couple people from various cultural associations to offer some tangible facts and information on how to get and stay involved in this process on campus, and the importance of the process of reconciliation itself. Think of this, perhaps, as a “Teach In” – educating and equipping students to be active in seeing our campus community change for the better.

Thursday, April 29 @ 7:00 in C 13 – Meet with the Big Man Himself (President Horner, not God) to discuss diversity on our campus. Share with him concerns and questions; help to form a working relationship between the Administration and the student body, uniting our campus in a commitment to see reconciliation attempted and enacted at North Park.

Please pass this information on to your friends – we sincerely want to hear what YOU the STUDENT BODY think and are dealing with surrounding this hot topic of diversity. If you have any questions or concerns, PLEASE FEEL FREE to contact Andrew or myself by email or phone any time.

Peace and blessings to each one of you,

Megan Gilmore

Student Association Vice President
