It's a Friday night, I'm all dressed up, and...

There are times when I just feel at home at Columbia--things that tell me that I belong. These aren't the times when I am overwhelmed by coursework or feeling idiotic about something that I have said in discussion section, but times like right now, when I'm sitting in the student center at 11 p.m. on a Friday night reading Machiavelli for the fun of it. Sure, it's an assignment and I need to fill up some time before I go out, but the point is that I'm enjoying myself.

The best part? I'm not the only one here...

Today's other event which made me reflect deeply on my life at Columbia and it's meaning: Today I saw Hawkmadinejad perched regally atop Alexander Hamilton's head. It just made me smile.
