when FDR was a lawyer in NYC he noticed Jews made up one-third of the freshman class at Harvard. As a member of the Harvard board of overseers he explained, “that over a period of years the number of Jews should be reduced one or two percent a year until it was down to 15%.
The trees on Tiergarden, the five elms where rabbits played. The islands where cygnets hatched. They tried not to think of German politics. “Edgar and Lilian were informed that the German government could no longer guarantee their safety. They left for France. “nowhere have I had such lovely friends as in Germany,”..
Looking back on it all is like seeing someone you love go mad and do horrible things.”
- Edgar and Lilian Mowrer
and already fighting with my mother. its going to be a looonggggg break.
My first college finals season experience. It’s tough. I’ve calculated it, and for about every 4 hours of studying, I retain about two pages of notes. Partly because it’s studying and THIS very thing that I’m doing right now. Despite the fact that I’m being inefficient, Being at the library, for a good day is a lot better than promising to study in my room, because that’s a lie. and I know it from the second i suggest the idea to myself. Yesterday, I sat in my room and watched all of Glee season 2 and Forrest Gump with my French notes in my hand. So two pgs of notes retained is better than nothing.
But recently my main problem has been finding a cubicle in the lib. I’m easily distracted so I need one. It’s basically been my main priority everyday for the past week. Like when I wake up in the morning. I think about going to the library and finding the perfect cubicle. I’m not even kidding a little. I’m so damn serious.
I’m writing this because i took a shuttle bus to the second campus library bc its usually less crowded and I’ve been sitting at this miniature tea table with this girl. and ive been trying to scope out students who’ll call it a day and leave their damn cubicle. AND FINALLY this one kid left. so im in a cubicle, and will study.
