Life’s Irony

Filed under:Blogging,It's My Life — posted by Anwyn on October 30, 2006 @ 8:46 pm

In college, I had a politically aware roommate who enthusiastically took advantage of our school’s cultural offerings. While we were at school, she heard speak, among others, P.J. O’Rourke, Dr. Ruth, Patrick Stewart, and Spike Lee, whilst I preferred to either moulder in our room, reading or watching TV; moulder in a computer lab, hopelessly addicted to what were then the very new-fangled interwebs; or moulder at another school about an hour distant, macking it up with my boyfriend.

The irony comes in here: the very interwebs that once kept me from broadening my horizons are now my primary connection to politics, culture (at least the pop kind), and information generally. Good thing I’m still addicted.

  1. …but it sure would have been awesome to hear Patrick Stewart speak. This is the sort of thing I miss out on being at IUK. I’ve never heard of any of the guest speakers they get to come there, much less seen them on TV.

    But that’s why it’s nice to have a big sister who buys me tickets to things like this for my birthday. :-)
