“What were you laughing about just now?”
“I’m on Tumblr. There was a little bird running on an escalator and it just kept running. I’m easily amused.”

“So what are you doing on the ground?”
“I love sitting on the ground, I actually sleep on the ground sometimes. See, when I’m on the ground I feel like I can’t fall. That’s one of my biggest fears, falling. I remember when my little sister went to the edge of a bridge and that scared me to death. I guess on a deeper level, I don’t like falling in the same way I don’t like failing. I like to spend my life on level ground where I can’t hurt myself, where I have an understanding of where I am.”

    I wish I had started this when I was on staff. It’s a great way to capture the little moments on campus. LOVE the idea!
