01:16 am - Riva // Apologies for joining the community but then not getting around to this sooner!
So, here's my newbie post...

Name: Riva
Hometown: Baltimore, MD
High School: McDonogh School
Intended (or possible) Concentration: Physics/Philosophy
AIM/MSN/etc: I'm never really on, but email me to talk--rnathans at fas dot harvard dot edu
Favorite Hobbies: dance, art, creative writing, music, activism
Favorite Books: The Plays of Anton Chekhov, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Consciousness Explained, On Bullshit, Calvin and Hobbes
Favorite TV Shows/Movies: An Inconvenient Truth, Brokeback Mountain, The Seventh Seal
Favorite Music: The Smiths, The Decemberists, Tarkio, Belle & Sebastian, The Mountain Goats, Chopin, Bach, Edvard Grieg, Philip Glass, Yo-Yo Ma, basically indie and classical
Something Fun About You: Yoshitomo Nara is my 21st Century Japanese Superflat art muse, though he doesn't know it yet. Generally, I enjoy my life and the lives I borrow through fiction. By the nature of the form, I think I was supposed to put a witticism or odd skill here. Apologies again.
Does It Upset You That You Can't Actually Park The Car In Harvard Yard: I wasn't so good at parallel parking anyway...
Anything Else: I'm dying to get to know some more members of our future Harvard class...I'd like to friend all in this community, but I think it would be more polite to say, if you don't mind me friending you then drop me a comment, so I'll do that.
Any CTYers? dancers? artists? people signed up to do dorm crew? philosphers? poets? fans of any items in my aforementioned favorites? vegetarians?

Feel free to friend me :)

I actually just heard Belle and Sebastian for the first time the other day. Very cool music. I also write (totally mediocre) poetry.

Also, wtf is dorm crew? Everyone talks about it, and I'd love to do something to meet people before school actually starts (I was indecisive and missed the app deadline for FAP) but I haven't heard anything official about it.

Dorm crew is a week of cleaning out the dorms in preparation for the real move-in day. I signed up to make some spending money and for the chance to meet people.

Belle & Sebastian are great! I bought their most recent album, The Life Pursuit today at the bookstore...haven't gotten a chance to listen to it yet. The others that I currently own are The Boy with the Arab Strap, If You're Feeling Sinister, and Books.

I'm friending you, by the way.
