“Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great.” -Mark Twain

Justin Oberg, Editor in Chief
Justin Oberg is attending his second year at SCF and will be attending USF in Tampa in the Fall of 2012. He plans to become either a creative writing teacher holding a PHD, or a lawyer. (Opposite ends of the payscale, right?) He has no major goals as of this time and just plans to go in the direction of the universal pull, although, as previously mentioned, his major will likely be in something involving writing and the English language with a minor in Philosophy. A self-described “renaissance man,” “pacifist,” “poet,” and “extrovert,” Justin can usually be found somewhere on campus laughing about something. If you see him, don’t be afraid to walk up and say “Hello!”

“A poet looks at the world the way a man looks at a woman.” ~Wallace Stevens, Opus Posthumous, 1957
