"Lacrosse has been the biggest challenge for me in college because it is so different than academics. If I study, I can get an A, but lacrosse and athletics in general is different… I have had to put a lot of time and work into and I think it made me a much stronger person both mentally and physically." - Women’s lacrosse captain Phoebe Hammer ‘14 (via Oberlin College & Conservatory)

The Man Who Died In His Boat

boizandgirlz:

This is something I’m working on for the fiction 320 workshop at Oberlin College. I’m not totally sure where I want to go with it, the basic story is: boy runs away in small town, people try to find him from different perspectives, they can’t. Someone is a suspect. Maybe it’s the wrong guy, but that doesn’t really matter. It’s whatever you want it to be.

It’s really heavily influenced by named after the new Grouper album. You should definitely take a listen to it.

I’d love some criticisms, I have a lot of problem w/ coherence. I’ve had professors in workshops use the word “opaque” before, and I just realized like a month ago that that isn’t a compliment.

Anyways. Click read more if you want to see the first six or so pages.
