It's a new year. Doesn't matter how much you've
screwed things up in the past. That's the great
thing about September. There io no past.
But what's better-and you're definitely going
to disagree with this-is that no matter how much
you screw up, at this point it's OK. Expected even.
If you don't experiment now, with classes, re-
lationships, partying, lifestyles, etc., then when
are you going to? When you're out in the real world
and have responsibilities not only to yourself but
to others too? No way.
Let me put it this way. There are three ways to
look at life:
1) The future is right around the corner, and if
you don't get completely prepared, then when
reality hits, you're screwed.
2) You've gotta fight for your right to
3) Life is like a jar of pickles, some sweet and
-some sour, The only way to get to the ones
you like is by trying them all.
I personally like the third choice. The problem
here is that it may lead to a few flops. But that's
OK. They say success only feels good when it follows
failure-I never really agreed with that, Who the
hell is "they" anyway? But what about this one?
Failure builds character, and helps you to discover
who you really are. After all, we are the Pepsi
Generation. If life was really like the commercials,

we'd be having so much fun that there would never
be a need for introspection. Maybe a "C" here, a
broken romance there, and a fiat tire once in a
while are necessary to remind us that life is not a
Anyway, forget all that. What I'm really trying
to say is this: In the midst of the turmoil, or boredom
or insanity that you are experiencing, there are
some excellent events and people around you. They
are the things that can make you forget your own
anxieties and just make you happy to be in college.
We present a whole bunch of them in these pages.
A quick note about two words that are making
their way across the country:
1) hotel: (adj) excellent, exceptional, awesome. e.g.
I saw "Top Gun" on video last night. What a
hotel movie! Origin: Southern California. The
word was a late response to the famous Sugarhill
Gang record, "Rapper's .Delight." (i.e. ". .. hotel,
motel, Holiday Inn ..."
2) brilliant: (adj) has the same meaning as "hotel:'
Origin: England. The word is now widely used
on campuses in both England and New York
In conclusion, may you be blessed this next se-
