Oh and thank you everyone for your support! I really appreciate it.  

How would you describe yourself? 

- Marching Band. 

What about marching band? 

- It takes a lot of dedication. We have to be there 6 hours early at game days to practice. So if it’s a noon game; we have to be there at 6 am.  

What’s the craziest thing you have done at Ohio State? 

- I synthesized DMT once. 

What’s that? 

- DMT is an hallucinogenic drug. 

How does it feel? 

- It feels like you are breaking through to another dimension. It only lasts for about 5 mins; but it feel like several years has passed. 

How did you go about synthesizing it? 

- I experimented heavily with drugs in high school. Also, I am senior studying chemistry. Having access to a chem lab definitely helps with the process. 

PS: I am not sure of your exact situation and the troubles you are going through; but please don’t cut yourself again. 

How has you college experience been so far?

- I was a Political Science major, but I realized I din’t want to spend my life in a cut-throat world. 

Also, I was a depressed for a while; and I took the past fall off.

Can I ask why you were depressed? and how you got yourself out?

- Most of my friends went to other schools, and I didn’t know a lot of people here. I thought I would become better friends with the acquaintances from high school; but didn’t because they developed their own group. I was lonely at the time.

But taking time off helped. People think if they take any time off they won’t come back; but taking the time off really helped me.

I also started to realize what’s around me and stopped pitying myself. 

What was the most memorable thing you have done at OSU? 

- This was at OSU, but I applied on a whim to spend 2 months in Oman and Dubai. 

What’s the craziest thing you have done there? 

- I crossed a 12 lane highway on foot. Also, I got kicked out of Oman. I went about my business in Oman, completely unaccounted for. 

What’s the weirdest thing you have done in campus?

- Once a few friends of mine and I dressed up in full snow and ski gear and went skiing around campus. There was no snow in the ground. Than a friend of mine jumped in to Mirror Lake. 

What’s the most fun thing you have done while attending Ohio State? 

- Took a road trip to a small town Fredonia and Timbuk farm while being high. There were a lot of racist people there.

How did you end up there? 

- I have this policy, when in doubt, take a left.   

What’s the weirdest thing you have done at OSU? 

- I ran around campus in a clown costume for a photographer friend. 

How do you like Ohio State?
- It’s crazy here but after 2 years living here; it became a second home town. Also, oval beach was surprising, watching everyone with little clothes on.

What’s something you didn’t expect at OSU? 

- There aren’t as many cornfields as I thought there would be; and the people here are friendly, people is Boston aren’t as friendly. 

What’s something quirky or weird about you/ you experienced here?  

- People in my floor in Smith Hall toss around a butt-plug as a joke. 

How has OSU changed you?

- OSU helped you become more independent.  I have learned to always keep an open mind.
