“‘Undertakers. Life at Cornell, one body at a time.’ Great blog heading, Lily!” my witty suite mate JChou* jested.
Thus, a disclaimer: this is not a blog about dead corpses. I repeat, this is not a tribute to the underground, the dark, and the end. In fact, this weblog strives to serve as just the opposite. These entries are supposed to be eye-opening chronicles of the sparks that drive us. To convey my ideas, I will use various mediums and formats, including lists, photos, videos, links, and quotes. Common themes and topics may emerge (such as the FREE series in which I list free resources available to Cornellians), but in general, the contents will be loosely linked. If you (the reader) ever find fault in or disagree with my writings, please feel free to discuss (politely) your views in the comment box below the related post. I welcome differences.
All in all, this blog is not just about me and my experiences, but also the other people that I come across on this 2300-acre, hilly campus. These memos are meant as snapshots of those shared moments — however fleeting or continuous — that inspire, startle, and humor us. They will recognize our triumphs, downfalls, aspirations, and trials as we search for and interpret what it means to be a Cornellian.
These are our stories. These are our undertakings.
