The Logistics of Microcampus

The Logistics of Microcampus

Blog Post IV

I'm going to be completely honest with you. I am actually very wary of everything that might go wrong in Microcampus. I honestly think that maybe these students are not really prepared to go alone to Yunnan.

Despite Microcampus' grand aims, the true value of Microcampus is still instilled in the everyday occurences that shape Microcampus, like how the EU is made up of many nations with many problems, and a supercomputers are made of logic gates that spit out patterns of 0s and 1s. Even though I have confidence in Mr. T and his ability to take leadership, I'm still aware that little things that can go wrong. Let's hope that nothing big goes wrong.

Not that little things going wrong makes a big deal. We could just laugh about it. In my opinion, it is the little things that go wrong that truly is etched in your memory.

Microcampus is suprisingly similar to summer camp, so I'll leave you with one final example of something gone wrong.

My friend Reese accidentally threw my Aerobie ring (Which is a ring-shaped frisbee), up a tree. To solve that, he picked up his shoe and chucked it at the frisbee, except the shoe also got caught in the tree. So he was forced to hobble around on one foot, and was lucky to have another pair of shoes.

Let this stand testament to all the little things that could go wrong. Good luck on not being the Reese!

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask." Over the course of Microcampus, I have experienced the individual freedom that I have been grappling with ever since I have left Shanghai. Who am I? Why am I here? My Microcampus-era posts and thoughts would go to reveal my struggle against who I am, a struggle you will soon face in Microcampus. And now that I am back, I may have but a fragment of my answer.
