I'm getting suspended for the protests last semester, but honestly, I wasn't able to afford the fee increases anyway. I was suspended the moment the fee increase was passed, not when the Office of Student Conduct issued their verdict.

No wonder I acted so desperately.

If you couldn't afford it, then you could get aid/loans.

Long distance

(Link)
The fact that it's easier to contact a lover hundreds of miles away than it is to contact you, someone who LIVES in Berkeley, is ridiculous. In practice, YOU are my long-distance relationship; THEY are the one who seems to live nearby.

If you don't pick up the phone the next time I call you, it's over.

My standards are way too high

(Link)
-I stop myself from dating people (or even asking them out) as soon as I find one flaw in their character. I hook up with people instead, although my standards there are pretty low.

-There are only 3-5 grad schools I consider "worth my time"

-This craziness applies school-wise too. I'm accustomed to getting very good grades, and hate turning something in when I know I could have done better. I'm considering withdrawing instead of graduating simply because I know that after a project I turned in yesterday, departmental honors will be impossible. That's how badly I don't want a C or a D on my transcript.


Probably a bad move to post this so early on in anoncon, people will figure me out.

Oh, Berkeley. You're a bitch, and I love you, but I've no idea how I'm going to survive 5+ more years of you. Well, fuck it. Grad school, here I come. I'm going to kick your ass. Somehow.

I just wish I could have gotten in somewhere else so I could somehow justify and fulfill this urge to run away.

Get help. Seriously. Tang Center. And figure out ways of coping. Distract yourself, go out, develop new hobbies and new friends. Have a set time at which you talk with your bf but otherwise take care of yourself and cultivate your own private life.

I don't even like you that much

(Link)
We don’t talk anymore but I still read everything you write. I analyze your sentences hoping to find myself in your punctuation. If you ever sought to find it, you would find yourself in mine. It is not intentional. I read what you write and whatever it is that organizes the significant from the insignificant labels significant your use of the semicolon. Suddenly that piece of punctuation and those two independent clauses you felt, despite being perfectly capable of standing alone, could not bear the separation of a period and its impenetrable wall enters my consciousness as perfectly significant. So there it sits, intermingled with my most embarrassing and honest thoughts. There I forget where you end and I begin. In reality, your beginning follows my end but that is what has been labeled ‘insignificant.’

There, in that chaotic non-world far from what is lofty or beautiful, is where it becomes my thoughts, my punctuations. When I think, I think like you. When I write, I write like you. Sometimes I utter words that are not foreign to my lexicon and yet I know that you’ve influenced me, that particular words were placed in my mouth by your tongue, and anytime I speak I give away a little bit of you. Sometimes I seek to stop them before anyone could extract meaning from my desperate sounds. I don’t want these nothing words to escape my lips and enter an auditory world that never crosses your auditory world. I grasp at them, hoping to push them back down, to keep them inside me, and keep you there too.

Nobody notices. I wish you did.

It took four months, but I finally got a decent post-college job.

Sometimes it only matters that you have a college degree; don't kill yourself over having an "unmarketable" major

Four months is super fast and therefore should not be paired with the qualifier "finally". Congratulations.

The Bain Report

(Link)
So the campus paid a cool 3 Mill to have Bain & Company do a report on how the campus could save money. As part of their research they sent out a survey to 8000 undergrads in which they asked about various campus services. They also asked "What are the 2-3 areas where the student service experience can be most improved?" They received only 2300 responses to their survey and since they apparently didn't ask whether anything was good about student services, their power point consists of characterizations of advising such as "extremely impersonal" and "extremely frustrating". So, what do y'all think? Are you in fact completely unhappy with your college and departmental advisors? I’m afraid that UCB might dismantle everything and go for an economy-of-scale type student services structure. They’d probably do it over a summer when most of the students are gone. The transition period would be tumultuous and the good advisors would get frustrated and leave.

What would advising over an economy of scale look like? Just gutting advising?

We need hand-holding more available.

I was going to come into here and post about how though it's my last semester here I wasn't even going to bother with the drivel that is anoncon, but I read the lackluster piece of shit comments on this page and I was drawn back into the fold. So hello, everyone. Welcome to another beautiful clusterfuck.
