My name is Jeremy Rodgers and I am a Stanford senior. My past three years at this illustrious institution of higher learning have been three of the best years of my life, and I began this last year with an unparalleled level of excitement. I have made amazing friends, I’m majoring in a subject I love, I’ve done everything on my Stanford bucket list, and I have a great job lined up for me after I graduate. Sounds perfect, right? WRONG.

My years here at Stanford have been TOO damn fulfilling! I’ve got my life on track, I’ve got confidence in myself, and I know who I am. And you know what? I’m PISSED OFF about it! Nearly everyone my age has already had an existential crisis by now, and damn it all, I want one too! I want to know what it feels like to need to find myself! I want to read Ayn Rand and Walt Whitman and cry myself to sleep. I want to know how it feels to be a humanities major with no job. I want to know how it feels to think my life has no purpose. I want to know how it feels to need to jack off every night alone because nobody wants to sleep with me!

I want to know the feeling of getting to late night at the Axe and Palm JUST after 2AM. I want to know the sadness that comes from being unassigned with a tier 3. Or being assigned to FroSoCo as a freshman. There’s so much the world hasn’t taken from me! I feel cheated and deprived, and I’m going to do something about it. I’m on a quest to find emptiness, and replace my full heart with a void. Life is too short, guys. You can follow my journey on my blog at Wish me luck, everyone!
