In the last week at Purchase, there have been unexpected opportunities that have swept me off my feet, having a calm hold over me which is an odd feeling because I’ve never quite liked college. I enjoyed the concept but never cared for the practice but for once, I can honestly say that I’m enjoying being a student. I joined the Arts Management club in which I’ve met some wonderful people who have welcomed me in with open arms and I’ve met teachers who’ve helped me in the right direction towards curatorial studies and I’ve been to a gallery that I’ve fallen in love with and I’m now double majoring in Art History and Arts Management and working towards a minor in Literature and I’ve been asked if I wanted to become a teacher’s assistant for my creative writing class in the coming semester and I received a phone call to request permission for publishing an essay I wrote a few months ago. It seems as though for once in my life, the path I’m taking is no longer crooked or lingering but rather, it’s a path that makes sense and at the end of it I see a happier man - more so than I’ve ever been and perhaps, most importantly, someone my mom can be proud of because for once, I am proud of who I am and I am proud to be a student here at Purchase.
