Although it isn't technically an Indian summer until the first frost, it has been unseasonably warm these past few days. So get out! Bike to the Rockaways or hike those Catskills you put off doing all summer long (you protagonist, you).
WAIT, DON'T GO BIKING OR HIKING YET. Finish up reading the rest of this week's Boylan Blog which is spectacular, I promise. Okay, I know. Try listening to this:
There, relax. Isn't that nice? So, now some clerical stuff. But clerical stuff that could very easily benefit you. Clerical stuff that could prove to be very profitable for you this semester--mentally, academically, even fiscally (Pay your cable bill! Buy an Unlimited Metrocard! Treat your dog to brand name kibble! etc.):
1) Cuny Ethics & Morality Essay Contest. Deadline is Friday, September 30th. For more information, visit www.aaari.info
2) Making Work Visible writing contest. Open to all CUNY undergrads. Deadline isn't until January 2012, but visit http://www.lehman.edu/academics/arts-humanities/AHlaboressay.php for more details.
As always, swing by 3416 Boylan Hall for even more related contests, information on literary journal submissions, and general counseling. It's going to be in the mid-eighties and humid all week. We have air conditioning. Just saying.
For those interested in finding where the video and picture at the top of the page come from, look no more.
Be excellent to one another, and do good work.
