The people in Kicking and Screaming may indeed be satirized and heavily romanticized versions of people you'd encounter on a liberal arts campus on any given day - and for me, currently attending a liberal arts school, this one hit a bit too close to home - but their commonalities with their real life counterparts that you can't deny the satirical dial isn't turned up all the way past human recognition. The people in Kicking and Screaming are the type of people to put a sign on a pile of broken glass in their apartment identifying it as such rather than sweeping it up. They are the type of people who fear that their whole schedule will be thrown off irreparably when they move to Milwaukee, which poses a one hour time difference from their current location. They are the type of people to play impromptu games involving how many films involving monkeys they can name on the dime, as well as being the person to name all the Friday the 13th films the fastest with no assistance. We focus on four college pals: Grover Josh Hamiltonwho breaks up with his girlfriend in the opening scene of the film when she reveals that she'll be bound for Prague in a few days, Max Chris Eigemanwho often insights the ridiculous, aforementioned games, Otis Carlos Jacottwho proclaims to only have two emotions, antsy and testy, and Skippy Jason Wileswho finds himself in that awkward stage with Miami Parker Posey between hooking up and going steady. After graduating, instead of moving on to bigger and better things, as many college graduates do, the four comrades remain on campus, happily indulging in the same food they condemned having to eat for the past four years and slumming around campus through endless nights of drinking and conversing about everything and nothing. The rapid-fire wit in Kicking and Screaming is probably the film's most laudable feature.

Things have changed since I started teaching. The vibe is different. I wish there were a less blunt way to deposit this, but my students sometimes alarm me — particularly the liberal ones. Not, like, in a person-by-person awareness, but students in general. What it was like before In early , I was an adjunct, teaching a freshman-level writing course at a area college.

Around were two prominent things that helped me cope with my disaster week — one of them being my upperclassman house, Mather! Spanish Table gives students a chance to have a meal over Spanish conversation. All levels are welcomed and encouraged. The air is really chill and not daunting at all!

Harvard offers a plethora of opportunities I never thought existed and a moment ago, its international opportunities have really caught my eye.
