Entering college has taught me one thing. Perhaps I knew it already and in some ways I've always known it, but college has really made it clear that there is a vast gulf between myself and the people of my community. I can make friends with these people, be polite, even genuinely care about them and take an interest in their lives. We have nothing in common however.

I could wallow in self pity but instead, I think I will take ownership of my outlier status. When my colleagues are being sexist, homophobic, racist or generally dull-witted I will allow my inner voice the freedom to speak "That is bullshit and here is why..." I have already spoken out in some capacity. However I think I might take it that one step further and begin giving people both barrels, so to speak.
