I Have A Story For YouOnce upon a time there was a shy little girl. Over the years, she grew wings. The wings would take her places. Over mountains, through treetops and down deep in valleys. But they would always, always return her home, safe and unharmed. As the little girl grew up into a teenager, she stopped believing in herself and never told her friends of her adventures. She kept quiet for so long that eventually, the travels and fun she had just became myths and fairy tales. She stumbled into a park on a whispy autumn day and saw another little girl, about the same age she was many years ago, sprout wings and fly up to the slide. "Now why did I let myself not believe?" she asked, silently. The child flew all the way around the playground until she stopped right at the woman's feet. The woman and child spread their wings and soared away into the chill autumn air.
Kiss My AssSometimesI think of youAt nightWhen the moon's just right and twinkles with the stars.Yeah, sometimesI think of howWe wereAnd whisper what you are in a voiceless verse.But most nights,I lie awakeIn bedWith my pillow and my head dreaming dreams bizarre.Yeah, most nightsI don't think anythingAt allBecause of how much I hurt.
"Why Reed?" essayAs a student hailing from a rural town in Alaska, I feel my leash pulled tight when it comes to opportunities for things I'm interested in pursuing. Diversity and open-mindedness simply cease to exist in my small community. What I'm looking for in a college is a place I can call home, a place that welcomes my creativity with open arms. I had searched for a place that thrives with intellectuals and individuals from all spectrums of life. I yearn for a college whose sole purpose is to help me find myself through my learning experience, to encourage me to "inquire within," guiding me toward the brightest future possible. I could not find any of these traits at a community college, I was, however, lucky enough to find them at Reed.Reed is everything I could ever dream up, in the physical form of an institution dedicated to higher education. The first thing I noticed during my visit at Reed was that I, and my family, were inevitably lost. In no time, a faculty member passed by.
