Sickness and War

Jon-derek Castagno on Thursday, 05 April 2007. Posted in Campus Safety, Student Life

So I was deathly ill all of last week and part of this week. It has made my life suck. I cant believe how sick I was. I got sick from my roommate. My whole room has smelled like death for two weeks because the three of us were sick at different times for that time period. On that note I would like to make special note that being sick at RIT is deadly missing class is horrible. I got lucky that I only had one day of classes before my 4 day weekend. If I did not I definitely would have not gone to class. I was sleeping a lot. So the moral of the story is to not miss class and always not get sick.

The rest of mine time has been nothing to special just relaxing and staying in. I have a few quotes from my War and The State professor. Here are some good ones

<!--[if !supportLists]-->1. <!--[endif]-->"Killing babies is a great example for hyperbole because we know as a society that it is wrong, therefore using it to illustrate madness works well, and its funny".

<!--[if !supportLists]-->2. <!--[endif]-->"I thought to my self when is the next time I am going to be driving a cab especially in NYC, so I turned on the vacancy light and proceed to pick up fares"

<!--[if !supportLists]-->3. <!--[endif]-->"Are you morally exculpated from putting your roommate in a wood chipper if someone has a gun to your head?"

Some of these my seem morbid but they are really not. I love the class, I think about so many new ideas and make connections from old to new that are astounding. Thucydides is a pretty smart dude and I am very impressed with his analysis of the Polynesian wars and why it is so important. Pick up his book read it, learn.
