How have you changed? Posted on 08-09-2006
starsuga82

This question is for the upper classman if there are any of you left on here. I know personally I changed so much since I got down to the AUC three years ago. I'm that that I had enough boldness to leave home, so far and stay! I've met plenty great people and have grown so much. In my confidence (taking on leadership) to my style(even in my speech). I don't know what's next for me; only God Knows; what I do know is good and bad experiences (like my first spring break trip! ) have shaped me. What about ya'll?

^do tell more about sping break. hmm... i can defintely say i had less confidence as a freshman. i looked up to people...kinda the same dumbass way you do it in high school...think about it: a high school senior as a role model? that's how i looked up to upperclassmen instead of being my own man... now that i know where i'm going and am clearly on my way there, i'd say i feel alot better and more accomplished. i've become a person who's obsessed with being independant and getting mine on my own...although honestly i'm living with my uncle right now, but i'm saving so that i can put down on a piece of property. learned to love myself and to accept who i am....developed a "me vs. the world" mentality that gives me fuel for my fire... mostly, i'm obsessed with finding success after dropping out...i won't be satisfied until i'm living in the most expensive nieghborhood in carefree, Arizona...a suburb of scottsdale. and i won't pass up any oppotunity (sic) to say that i did it without a degree. yeah so that's pretty much me... oh yeah this has absolutely nothing to do with this thread, but i'm becoming obsessed with willy wonka. since i moved to AZ, i've been bying alot of purple and green...and i've been going around quoting this cat and singing. i have no idea where the hell this is coming from. i just think it's daffy. I think i truely enjoy the madness of this man...so mad, but yet the wisest character in the entire bunch....i truely dig this cat. He and Julian Casablancas are my heroes...

What. The. Hell. LOL!! glad you've finally got a pic, so people don't think you're Phil Hendrie... I've grown, yet I haven't. I'm more confident, but never when it counts. I'm in the same place academically and socially... worse even. It's worse than looking up to bad role models, I'm cowering before people who are supposed to be on my level, and then just staying in the same spot until I'm even looking up to guys who should be looking up to me!! F**k this shyt. Make that cheese, Nick. I hope you're successful, cuz if not, I'm rather screwed.

I definitely changed and its not as depressing star lol... (speaking of which... you are antoher one on here who i don't think i've ever met). Similar to the post in the yard I wouldn't trade my experience here at the house for anything in the world. Its been great. Now great doesn't mean everything was peachy. I've been on top of the world and rock bottom throughout my matriculation but its all been a shaping molding process. Still have a ways to go but i definitely think I've left the house a better man. Not too many people can say they've been in the same rooms as Oprah, Spike Lee, Ossie Davis, Russell Simmons, Calvin Butts, Cornell West, Samuel Jackson, Harry Belafonte, and countless others who have made a contribution to our people in their own little way. It kinda inspires you to want to be on their level (if not surpass them in terms of the things they have done). I've definitely become more extroverted since i've been here. I've also learned my strengths as a leader. I've gained the respect of a lot of people for how i handle certain things (particularly when it comes to frat). I'm no where near the vicinity of perfect but I have come a long way from the lil ragamuffin from Bridgeport, CT to the man I am now. I'm definitely a better/stronger man than i was before. Just a man period... cus now i'm standing on my own two feet supporting myself where i wasn't (couldn't... not like this at least) before.
