As in, Keep Going! with all of your scholastic endeavors (but stay here, reading the Boylan Blog). If you are currently (as a good friend of mine put it) "boiling in the stew of life"--up to the eyes in papers, deadlines, and notes you did or did not take (curses!), this is a message of solidarity to the 99% of the student body who didn't record every lecture, attend every class, comment on each discussion point, and so on. Keep Going! Soon you will be rewarded with turkey, football, a couple days off, and possibly a cancelled flight leaving those weirdo relatives at home.
(Are we allowed to make 99% jokes and puns?)
Anyhow, take a minute out of your boiling-stew mid-November days and check out this week's blog. Since, as part of that 99%, you're probably procrastinating anyways. Here's some clerical reminders:
1) Making Work Visible writing contest. Open to all CUNY undergrads. The deadline isn't until January 2012, but be sure to visit http://www.lehman.edu/academics/arts-humanities/AHlaboressay.php for more details.
2) The Poetry Club meets every Tuesday during common hours in 2307 Boylan! Get your verse on.
3) Start sending in your submissions to the Junction! Send in your poetry and other creative writing to firstname.lastname@example.org and bring a hard copy to 3416 Boylan.
4) Creative writing classes will be offered (FOR THE FIRST TIME! WOW!) during the winter session. Come to the office for more details.
Last, we'd like to genuinely thank to all of those who came to the Open Mic last Thursday. You know who you are. Every year we're reminded that the true epicenter of youth poetry is Brooklyn College; this past event was no exception. Well done to everyone.
And double thanks if you laughed at my eye-roller of a banana joke.
Be excellent to one another, and do good work,
