So, like the majority of college students, I work my life away. I work in a virtual hobbit hole near the center of Cornell Campus that serves as the school’s department store. The store employs about forty full-time workers and a similar number of P-T, the vast majority of which are students of the university. The hobbit hole was built in 1969, and remodeled in 1989 and 2001. Under Cornell’s new master plan, the 33,000 sq. ft underground building that I work in will be demolished due to sight lines. I don’t find this to be a very comforting thought.

Anyways, I work store services and sales. I have worked there for two years, starting barely two weeks from when I first arrived in Ithaca. I like my job. I’d discuss it more thoroughly, but I think such discussions are best left behind closed doors. On a good note, my job enables me to work with people I otherwise would of never met. It’s almost a social circle within itself.

Oh, in case you haven’t noticed, one of my favorite pastimes is history. Of my school, or the area, of my interests and organizations…I just love looking into the past, especially because it leads to the present, and from there into the future. A good knowledge of the past can only benefit future endeavors.
