The following post may be a bit over-exaggerated.
Yesterday I almost slept through my first class. 9am has been seeming really early lately, and “Humans and the Biosphere” aka how we are screwing everything up is a bit of a downer, not to mention the topic of an entire course I took Junior year of college. In other words, its a bit repetitive, and resultantly boring, but I made myself attend anyway and was super excited a did because we were discussing Agriculture and Food Policy. I actually managed to pay attention for the whole class, take notes, even comment. Super nerdy exciting. It was like my WHOLE LIFE made sense. Oh thats why you interned on a farm this summer, to foster your interest in agriculture. I could even imagine writing my thesis on food policy (yeah people already expect me to have that figured out). I worked on the farm as a gateway to solving world hunger (and peace?). Dramatization, sure. But still it was a good lecture.
