When I first began undergrad poly sci classes, haikus used to be my escape from within the brainwash system aka University classrooms. I guess they were sort of my only alternative outlet to opening my mind to the world when I was stuck in such an environment. Anyways, until I was comfortable enough arguing back with the mindless kids and faculty, All that I am today and what I have been able to overcome in life thus far is def. somewhat accredited to writings and arguments I jotted down during and in between classwork and my extracurricular activities. Organizational management and activism starts and ends with free thinkers and original ideas. Highly recommend this to any college students in this field today, simple thoughts grow if you water them regularly. That is, a whole lot of activism + self taught reading + research outside of the college classrooms should give you momentum to continue breaking grounds in a narrow minded world of today’s academic institutions.
