One sophomore fall afternoon I was walking with a group of friends to the dining hall. I asked why we didn't have more contra dances on campus and someone said "that would just be more work for the people that do everything". Which made me think: why don't I organize things? If there are things I want to happen that aren't happening, I can make them happened. I recategorized myself from 'participant' to 'organizer', and started instigating singing parties, group trips to dances, and dances on campus.

Seven years in retrospect, this has turned out well.
