David Lynch thinks he has something to say…

Howdy, folks!  Do you remember “The Wedding Singer,” that romantic comedy from the late 90s?  Adam Sandler’s character has a line where he says: “Well, I have a microphone, and you don’t, so you will listen to every damn word I have to say!”

While I don’t often draw on silly rom-coms for quotes and inspiration, I use it today as a way of saying, “Hello, and welcome to my blog.”  Well, it’s not MY blog.  But I have been asked by the Adventure Education staff to write a few words about the program from a student’s perspective.  And while the range of my microphone is limited to whoever stumbles across this little slice of cyberspace, I hope you – especially perspective students – will glean a tidbit or two from my experience at Fort Lewis.

So, who is this clown, you ask?  I am David Lynch, not the eccentric movie director (although I do like his work), but a guy from Longmont on Colorado’s Front Range.  Other random facts: this is my third semester at the Fort; I am 35, so I suppose that makes me a non-traditional student; and I love the theories, philosophy and application of adventure education.  And since I plan on holding on to this microphone, I’ll tell you more in future blogs which I will be posting on a very random and irregular basis, but hopefully weekly(-ish).

Here’s the disclaimer mumbo-jumbo (in plain English): most blogs aren’t peer-reviewed, scholarly or even spell-checked, and this one is no exception.  The opinions expressed in these posts will be mine and mine alone, based on my experiences, past baggage, current workload and mood.  And while I love the AE program here at Fort Lewis, my words do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the AE program, its employees, other students, or Fort Lewis College.  Feel free to comment.  Got it?  Good.
