Why this college



Need to write a meaningful activity one about ratsoc, and can link in uofb and blah blah blah


What are the powerful moments here?

it is mostly the story of forming the tribe and ratsoc, then these other things pop up around them? Becuase that’s the most leadership thing

too much damn exposition.

and making book clubs.

Okay am spending way too much time on dunbar’s hideout and setup

I need a damn arc. Something to tie it all together, that’s what makes it interesting. Some big mistake I made.

Is it more of just not understanding what community is? And how it exists?

“I didn’t really understand communities until september 2021, but boy did I try” and then just all of me trying to not be lonely? I should still write a draft and then edit it. You’re finishing this draft.

Okay, the community essay has a very good core, because I have tried to be a leader a lot, but it needs a differnet hook, a different perspective. I need to think about this.

But good for one essay done right now.

I could do the communities one but focus it on the moment that I realised it was a failure and that I had done wrong

what did i learn from it? How to successfully run bookclubs and ratsocs

what’s the deeper lesson? To solicit feedback from people more frequently, to not be such an autist about trying to breakdown human things into just one thing

which moment does it focus on?

The school slavery one is fucking tight.

Okay, one about programming at least I think. But that was never hard or stressful. Maybe film stuff. Can relate it all if I can make it stressful. But first, go on a walk. Refresh. THen four and five that’s at least two essays which is enough. I guess I have to write “why this school” for brown and yale at least.
