A favor for a family friend
Do you (or anyone you know) want to tutor a high-school student (ninth grader, I believe) in the Fullerton, CA area? Preferably, you'd be able to tutor English, math, and Spanish, but any two of those three subjects would be sufficient.

You would have to drive yourself (about once or twice a week), but the pay would be pretty good (negotiable, probably between $30-$50/hr).

Let me know!

petty question:

we just got our "applications to graduate," where you have to approve the spelling of your name and so on. question is, when they ask you to pick which pomona seal you want--the fancy-old-style founders' seal, or the normal rainbow-book--is that going to be printed on the diploma itself?
because, see, the rainbow book is so dumb. it kind of has always screamed "elementary school" to me. but the fancy seal says "tribute to christian civilization," and i'm a heathen jew. so where's this seal going? and how awful does the rainbow book really look on the real thing?

man, it would be so easy to throw away that little paper slip and then somehow not end up being eligible to graduate. i bet that's totally happened.

sexual harassment in higher education
http://www.cnn.com/2006/EDUCATION/01/24/life.harassment.reut/index.html
I wonder how Pomona's administration is handling these kinds of issues these days? I don't want to get into it for a number of reasons, but I was pretty disappointed in how I saw them handle a few incidents.

so, i have a "gig" at The Press this thursday night, DJ-ing from 11-1.

what the fuck should i play for that mix of college kids and grad students and random townies? i mean, i have ideas, but i've never paid that much attention to the music there except when it was the awesome guy who played all 80s new wave and dance and stuff--the guy i'll be replacing, if i get the job.

how do i please this crowd? i wish i'd paid more attention to who actually goes there other than us!

So the mysterious power outages all over Los Angeles today reminded me of my fond memories of rolling blackouts circa Fall 2000. Even if it was 2 in the afternoon, we all somehow lost the ability to be productive as soon as the power went out (because somehow it was impossible to read a book with no overhead fluorescents to augment the bright California sunlight streaming in the window) and we'd sit in the hallway and play Scrabble and drink beers.

Am I the only one who semi-secretly wishes we had power outages during the day more often?

blogging like it's my job
I am now officially blogging my term as student body president, though I feel a little silly about it. It's more of an experiment, more related to me being a media studies major than a politician, and I'm afraid it's going to come out positively BORING. Certainly Senate is a far less gripping topic than my Troubled Times in Tokyo or my International Glory in Cannes blogs, but I'm doing this for very different reasons than those.

Anyways, for those of you who care about student government at Pomona (which at this point is none of you, which is partially the point, yeah?) here it is:

So I didn't hear this year's speech, but...
I got ahold of this commencement speech at Kenyon College, given by Pomona's own David Foster Wallace. I can't say for certain if you'll like it as much as I did, but after reading it I think of it as Chicken Soup for the liberal-elite-college-grad soul. Enjoy.

It would seem that the new general education system has let me off the hook from two PACs, and so now I'm looking at the possibility of two more electives during my senior year and I have NO idea what to fill them with. Does anybody have any suggestions for awesome classes that they've taken in the past? Great professors you want to recommend? Anything and everything would be helpful. Thaaanks.

Speaking of things that would have been sweet...
A movie theater?! In the Village!?! And it's a five screen Laemmle?!?!?!
They couldn't have done this a few years earlier?

a question i haven't even asked myself
So Pomona has never had a woman of color president. Or an AAMP mentor president. Or a woman president with a pierced tongue. Or...the list probably goes on forever, depending on how specific you get. But what have we really never had? A president who is also a blogger.

I've been thinking a lot about the creation of a way cooler, more interactive website for Pomona students (someone sent me the link to www.tuftslife.com, that's a good start), and then I started thinking about how much I personally would like to contribute. So here's the real question -- should I start a presidential blog?

The pros are obvious. We complain all the time about how we don't know what Senate really does, it would add an element of interaction and communication of relevant information, it would revitalize what is otherwise a dead aspc page.

But then again, is too much of what a president does going on behind closed doors? Will I really be able to communicate as freely as I like to? Will I run into more conflicts of interest than it is really worth?

I pose this question to you, pomona community bloggers, because only bloggers understand bloggers. Only you understand the delicate balance of inner depths and accessibility, the motivation behind spilling yourself to an anonymous audience. Am I crazy or would this be a good idea?

please please please any and all advice/comments on proceeding courses/profs
because I´m stuck in Spain and I don´t even have the course catalog with all the pretty descriptions and I would give my right arm for a little advice from the pros. fuck, I can´t believe I´ll be a senior. OK...

"Life Course of Women" with Jill Grigsby?
"Sociology of Everyday Life" with Yep (PZ)?
"Qualitative Research Methods" with Ochoa or with Jennings?

PHIL003 with Erickson? "Existentialism" with Sontag?
Advice on PHIL profs in general?
"Altered States of Consciousness" with Perry?

Linguistics advice (I´ve never taken a class, but should)...Prof. Vaysman? or Fought at PZ?

last of all, Intro French advice? Regular Intro or Accelerated? (Profs are Suriam at PZ, Boucquey at SC, Rolland at PO).

Muchas gracias. Seriously. I´ll owe you cookies in the fall. and sorry for x-post. i´m lame.
