One student’s trials

Since my return from Washington D.C., where I went to see the inauguration of Barack Obama as our 44th president, I have had to deal with a dead cat, a dead car and a computer that died the night before my inauguration article was due.

After a rugged, all-night struggle rewriting the entire piece by hand, I was able to finish it on time. That left me with my recently deceased cat and my stubborn car to deal with. Someone had callously ran over my little cat Midget sometime in the night while I was gone and not even stopped to take responsibility for it. She was buried in the garbage can, something almost as callous as nailing a tiny kitten with your car and not stopping, and something I have not and will not forgive the person responsible for.

My car battery had met an equally gruesome fate while I was away, when I went to start it I got nothing but that horrible clicking sound. Three hours and $120 later I was able to get it started, thanks to some help from AAA. However, starting the semester with no car, no computer and a hole in my heart the shape of my dead cat was not very promising.

I haven’t been the only one facing challenges returning to school for this new semester. For philosophy professor Jesse Womack, the hardest part of returning to class is “the reading.”

“Staying up on the reading for class is definitely tough,” he said “I have to stop working on my own writing projects and come back to reading someone else’s work. It’s usually been about a year since I have read it so I have to feel it out and get a good sense again of what the author is really saying.”

I’m sure many people, faculty and students alike, would agree with that statement. I know, for me, juggling all the reading and writing from all my various classes is always a challenge. Not to mention adjusting to a new routine and balancing your new schedule between friends and work. It’s something a lot of students can relate to.

Whether it’s homework, waking up early, reading, new schedules, trying to find a middle ground between school and work or dead cats, we have all faced challenges in preparation for this new semester. One thing is certain, we all hope that this semester will be our best one yet at City College. I know that’s what I’m hoping for.
