Random Kanji Knowledge: Sotsugyou

Random Kanji Knowledge: Sotsugyou

Random Kanji Knowledge time! This past weekend, I went down to a wonderful place called Pullman to attend my younger brother’s college graduation at Washington State University, which is my alma mater as well (if it is not obvious already, the cougar is my favorite animal in the world). It is thus fitting that today’s kanji is 卒業 (sotsugyou — pronounced sow-tsu-gee-yoh), the Japanese word for graduation. 卒 can refer to stuff like “soldier” or “graduate,” whereas the 業 can refer to aspects like “vocation” or…

山猫

山猫

So below is a quick haiku I wrote about my favorite cat in the world: the cougar. This haiku follows the traditional 5-7-5 syllable format. Perhaps I am a poet and didn’t even know it. Or not. >^..^<

College Newsroom Nostalgia

College Newsroom Nostalgia

So my alma mater, Washington State University, is having its annual elections for the school’s student government. By default, I am going to be rooting for the above candidates to win because Kyle Erdman is a fellow alumnus from my old high school, John R. Rogers. (Go Pirates!) So this particular event holds a lot of memories for me from back when I was a copy chief at my university’s paper, The Daily Evergreen. The copy chief is responsible for…

I like to think that I am a kindhearted soul who wants to help others, but there are definitely moments where this kind of mentality is not as prevalent as others. Some pretty wicked thoughts occupy my mind at times, and it certainly scares me. I do not want to…

Clashing Dragons Part 3

Clashing Dragons Part 3

So we must have this duel again, father. Oh yeah, don’t forget about the last one, either. For long time, I thought you were moderately content with the progress I’ve made throughout this past year and a half, the personal struggles I had to endure, the days where you thought I was sitting around and “doing nothing” as you ignorantly put it. Well, now you have gone and done it. You managed to reopen wounds I thought could finally get…

Cry Wulff

Cry Wulff

Paul Wulff has been officially fired as head coach of the Washington State University football team. (Special thanks to Jessica Cope for the link.) It was expected that Wulff would not continue as head coach based on the football program’s performance. There were some genuine bright spots in these past years, but all the positive aspects were easily outweighed by the multiple blunders and embarrassing defeats. It was time for Wulff to go. Good luck, Wulff. You will always be a…

End of the Wulff Pack?

End of the Wulff Pack?

Paul Wulff, it’s time for you to go. When Wulff replaced Bill Doba a few years back as head coach of the Washington State University football program, everyone was excited for the changing of the guard, the reunion of a former WSU alumnus and player to coach the biggest sport for American colleges. Needless to say, I was one of these individuals who looked forward to a new face for the football program. Wulff, you certainly looked the part. To…
