the business

I almost forgot that we had a blog for a second. So what's been going on? We've been taking in a lot of letters to the editor. Keep them coming; there's no better way to have your opinion reach the widest range of people.

As for the bitches who complain about Dan Stanczyk's "He said" column, JUST GROW UP ALREADY. I'm not saying what he's saying isn't offensive, I'm not even saying it's good writing. What I am saying is for the same reason I can write about Public Safety and FUSA, he can write about whores, Jersey and just overall college experience.

He's making gross generalizations about Fairfield, abstract observations that apply to situations most have been in. Is every girl really a whore at Fairfield? Well, it depends on who you ask. No, seriously they're not. Seriously. Is he a misoginist? Possibilities are boundless, but I highly doubt it.

Stanczyk has won if anyone hasn't realized. He's still writing with the same formula that gets a rise out of people. But while their mouths move as they whine and complain about the column, just like most at Fairfield, they're all talk. They bash The Mirror, they bash Dan; some Fairfield crazy even said that she was advising her tour groups from picking up The Mirror. Nobody is willing to make a difference.

If people really cared that much about "He said" they would come to The Mirror office to discuss it with the editors. Until then, I've got two words for ya...

it's been a long time

well i pretty much forgot about the blog probably just as you did.

now it's time to get back on track. we're revamping the print section, trying new layouts, diversifying stories and just having a tighter package. it's a fine read if you're on the toilet, in the living room or the classroom.

and the blog will get better. if not, tell me it sucks at and we'll work it.

great section this week, come to the meetings if you want to write, especially for commentary.

Enjoy the weekend

this week and ramblings

has this week not been the most work filled, least amount of fun you've ever had at fairfield?

maybe that's a stretch, but it definitely has been one of those weeks where friday can't come soon enough.

the time around here goes rather fast. it's like you walk into fairfield and the years start going by so quick that you can finally understand why everyone says enjoy it while it lasts.

and we do enjoy. excessively.

but isn't that what college is all about?

it really isn't at all but hey, it's absolutely a great excuse to get cocked.

be as irresponsibly safe as possible.

we have another solid issue this week with some commentary writers making solid observations in the section.

check out andrew chapin giving himself emphysema in the campus life section.

enjoy the long weekend because fairfield's the kind of place where three day weekend means three days somewhere else but fairfield. and that is whack.

beach houses

they definitely are the best - finding one, however, can prove to be an absolute pain in the sack.


i'm about to go look right now for what feels like the millionth time - except i never have actually looked - we just talk and talk and talk and do nothing. and that's great now while we're enjoying other people's beach houses but at the rate i'm going, i'll be lucky if i even get a couch to sleep on.

i think i have bronchitis. sick.

my feet smell like wet shoe leather.

be real, my roommates yelling to go.

a new day

it's a new gorgeous day - enjoy
