the UCSD FEELS
These are miniature confessions, doodles, thoughts, and information produced by a first year UCSD student. Not necessarily trying to shed UCSD in a bad light but it is what it is when it comes to direct quotes. The work is almost themed like something you'd hide away in a personal journal, where your language knows no limits because it's pure and usually meant to be shared with the author's reflective mind only. Some things are seen, some things heard, while others are thought.
This is for all the freshies and students who don't seem to fit in, all the minority students, and for myself. I can't promise you'll ever fit in (if that's what you're into), completely assimilate, or even love it here (UCSD). But, if you come across these words and partial doodles, I hope it gives you courage to continue, be proactive, call your family, or drop out, whatever makes a change in the person that lays their eyes on this work-- even if just for a quick glance.
