Too Many Threads

April 15th, 2011 · No Comments · Honors Program, Julia Vasinda '11

We have come to our final essay in Poetry, Place, and Advocacy, and for some reason I have hit writer’s block.  I cannot find the thread I want to take for this scientific essay.  Needless to say, I am not a huge science person to begin with…it would probably help if I had a little […]

Final Projects

April 13th, 2011 · No Comments · Honors Program, Julia Vasinda '11

It is about that time.  The weather is starting to warm up (sometimes), you’ve turned in the majority of your major assignments, and you feel like school is just about over.  But it isn’t!  There is still the one daunting task…the final project!! We recently discussed our final project for Womyn & Men.  There are […]

Finally Getting It

April 3rd, 2011 · 1 Comment · Honors Program, Julia Vasinda '11

In my Womyn & Men class I have been struggling to figure out exactly how they are grading.  But I’ve realized it is more of a way of thinking they are trying to cultivate.  And I think I am getting there.  Compared to my older journals, which are posted here, this is much more focused, […]

From Walkabouts to Cultural Conflicts

March 31st, 2011 · 2 Comments · Honors Program, Julia Vasinda '11

So, I’ve posted my sketch and drafts for my walkabout essay, but it actually ended up as something completely different.  I had so many threads going through it, but through careful workshopping and editing, I managed to get it down to an essay that I am quite satisfied with.  What do you think?? — Sacred […]

Group Projects

March 28th, 2011 · No Comments · Honors Program, Julia Vasinda '11

Group projects in honors classes are often an interesting thing.  Everyone is from a different major and brings something completely different to the table.  It is also nice because it is finally a place where I am not doing all the work. Today when I was working on a project for Womyn & Men with […]

A Different Kind of Walkabout

March 26th, 2011 · No Comments · Honors Program, Julia Vasinda '11

I began writing my draft for my walkabout essay for Poetry, Place, and Advocacy and I already knew I had way too many threads.  But I couldn’t decide which ones to use and which ones to throw out.  So here is the first version of my draft, it is extremely rough.  Maybe you can help […]

Rescuing Taylor Swift

March 25th, 2011 · No Comments · Honors Program, Julia Vasinda '11

For Womyn & Men, we had to write critical reviews.  Last time I wrote about How I Met Your Mother, and got some feedback that I was a little too broad.  I think I am finally figuring out my professors way of thinking, so we will see what you think about my newest critical review. […]

Walkabout

March 23rd, 2011 · No Comments · Honors Program, Julia Vasinda '11

Sorry for the absence guys, thesis and spring break are killing me!  I had a fantastic break spent in Las Vegas, at the Grand Canyon, and finally at Villanova!  Vegas was a blast, although it involved working (and making contacts to maybe get me a job!), but I actually really enjoyed the work.  Maybe I […]

Readings, readings, readings

March 6th, 2011 · No Comments · Honors Program, Julia Vasinda '11

Sometimes there are just so many readings! Hundreds of pages!!  But one reading for Poetry, Place, and Advocacy was so wonderful!! It was an essay about walking by Henry Thoreau. You don’t think an essay about walking could be that interesting.  But amazingly it is!!! For our next assignment we have to write a historical/mythical […]

Inspirations Out of Nowhere

March 2nd, 2011 · No Comments · Honors Program, Julia Vasinda '11

As you can probably tell, most of the Honor’s classes you take have little or nothing to do with your major.  Which, trust me, is a good thing.  It is nice to take a break from that one subject you are always studying, even if your major is the one thing you are most passionate […]
