Where's Nate?

living large in the four-oh-eight. wicked large.


they're all gonna laugh at you. again.

One of the thing that I enjoy most about Ross is the sense of humor of the student body. We have weekly humor columns in the student newspaper, party by a large school bus painted like a football helmet, and are routinely laughing our asses off in class (especially with our first year sections). It's hard to describe, but it's a quirk, almost self-deprecating humor. People seem to revel in the irony of our pretending like we're 18 years old again. And, because we Rossers are a relatively humble folk, you'd better be able to laugh at yourself.

The pinnacle of said funniness is the annual Ross Follies. It's equal parts video spoofs and live on-stage antics. And it's hilarious. Take this year's theme: "Paradise Ross". As a English minor in undergrad, I read a fair amount of John Milton. I can hardly think of a more appropriate literary example to explain what it feels like to be in the middle of a construction zone, with an administration showing shiny pictures of a new paradise...errrr, building.

Back to Follies. I was in it last year and will be doing something very similar this year. Here's a hint: I'll be playing bass. I've also been involved on the video side, too, and am anxious to see how those turn out. Fingers (and funny bones) are crossed.
