In graduate school, I am pursuing a hybrid course, currently taking remote-subjects. Among my peers, there is a diverse mix, including young individuals who have earned degrees from institutions like Carnegie Mellon University, and unique backgrounds like a graduate of Hunter College working at the Brooklyn Museum. Furthermore, there are seasoned and knowledgeable individuals not necessarily enrolled for career-related reasons, which is quite astonishing. There’s a wide range of backgrounds among my classmates, most of whom are from New York, with some from places like New Jersey probably. I happen to be the sole Japanese student in my class. With robust reading materials, I am determined to actively participate in the course.
It’s interesting to note that similar faculty members at Columbia, NYU, and certain CUNY institutions appear to teach in a manner that takes them around Manhattan in a similar way.
On an unrelated note, I experienced a peculiar situation earlier where a speed detector activated despite driving behind a slow-moving truck. It truly felt like something out of an E.T.A. Hoffmann’s world. Just kidding.
