Institute Part 3: Moving On…

On Institute… So as everyone has surely noticed, Institute is long past. My whole “write a lot about Institute” plan has clearly failed. As has my “blog a lot about everything” plan. We should not be surprised by this as my “blog during Institute!” plan failed and my “blog during Induction” plan failed. Basically, I…

Institute: P2 Story of Instiself…

Well, anyone who has read this blog knows how I feel about the more touchy-feely side of TFA. (For those who don’t, I’ll sum it up very quickly by saying: It’s not for me. I would have liked my time spent in different ways). Therefore, it might come as a shock that I’ve decided to…

Institute: Part 1 of ???

So, I realized that where I last left off, I was an angry sounding bitter CM writing in the heat of severe fury, tiredness, and frustration. I am a bit calmer (and a lot happier) now and I figured I should update this blog a little bit so my abundance of faithful readers (aka… my…

Induction Revisited (Institute W2)

Back after Induction ended (2 weeks ago now…), I wrote a post about how I thought Induction was a lot of bonding and thinking about feelings. At the time when I wrote the post, I was mildly annoyed by the Induction “Let’s all Bond” model and thought my time could have been better spent learning…

The Good of Induction

As promised, this is my post about what I thought TFA did right with Induction. Or, at least, the aspects of Induction that I personally enjoyed the most and found the most useful. At this point in my life, I want things to be useful rather than merely interesting (ideally, they’d be both). Right now,…

What Do You Think? (Induction)

So, originally to make this blog accurate I was going to try to write a little something every day as Induction unfolded. Therefore, the first night of Induction I wrote this rambling, unorganized post about the difference between interesting and useful (and how I thought after only a day, you could see a trend toward…

Weird, right?

So before we begin this post, I have to introduce another character to the blog who will doubtless be an important player in this story. This person is my best friend from high school and my future roommate in Miami. To sum up very, very quickly (maybe this will be a longer post at some…

pre-institute work and inspiration

Before I begin, a short disclaimer (that should be applied to this entire blog but, in particular,  should be kept in mind with this post): I am not an expert. In fact, I am the complete opposite. Something below novice or beginner. So if you ever find yourself thinking “Gee, that bottlecap really knows all…

the kick-off

Alright then, let’s do this. Here we go: blog time. Basically, along with the other multitude of 2012 people who have started to pop up here, I have decided to start my very own TFA blog. Obviously. This decision was made for a wide variety of reasons, but primarily I just like writing. I’ve also…
