It was... the academic part was easy, but living alone was not the best. Because of COVID everything was shut down and meeting people was not the easiest thing ever. The school was very strict on COVID guidelines, so us students did not have much freedom in that aspect.
How was the transition between high school and college after two years.
I picked the wrong school tough guy. The idea of the school was fun, I liked their programs and what not. The school was crazy about COVID, last year they suspended people for having more than two people in a room. So it was impossible to meet anyone. This year they TOOK AWAY THE DINING HALL, COMPLETELY GONE. Put me in a bunk bed with no safety rails was the icing on the cake.
What has been your biggest flop while at college
Everyone makes fun of the way I say “Long Island” . I was in class one time, talking about a toxic waste plant on Long Island. I raised my hand to talk about it. When I said Long Island the professor laughed at me because of how I said it. He asked if I was from New York, and I said yes. I asked him how he knew and he said because I said it in one word without a pause. Everyone is rich… they got money money. Which I think is a part of the reason why I do not like it because they have never had a job and their parents pay for everything.
How has your culture of being raised in New York and going to a school in Manhattan affected the switch to Vermont?
Well I wanna be either a civil rights attorney or a constitutional law attorney or a campaign manager or uhhhh political speech writer. It got started because I got a job working at the Vermont State House as a congressional staffer. That's pretty much it, I am curious on where I will go after.
What is your desired profession and has your professional career started?
Its soooo bad. I don't have a dining hall first of all, second this place is small so I do not have that much variety as I did in New York. Also everyone is white so no flavor. Ever walk into a Chinese place and the guy who takes your order is a white guy? And the people behind the counter are also white? Like its not good. When cook it's good but that's about it.
How does the food compare to back home?
Yes you can say that for sure, the next step for me is transferring colleges, I am not happy where I am now and want to see if I can expand my horizon before I fully committed to a job I will not like
So it is safe to say that you have had the college experience and now you are looking to forward your life in the next steps.
