Thoughts while waiting for students.

Sophomore consultant Dara Ricketts composed the following poem reflecting on her first hours as a writing consultant.


By Dara Ricketts


My first day at work

Filled with many emotions

Alone and hungry


My only session

But how could she blow me off

Come back Amanda


Hope is a walk-in

She will make an appointment

Only one day more


Silence fills the room

Only my growling stomach

As my company


My roommate is here

She helps heal all of my pain

But not the hunger


New fish in the pond

The Fishbowl is my home now

It needs a snack bar
