I will be a rising senior, and I see before you and I an opportunity though in recent times original, in the larger Reed community undoubtedly not (read: Olde Reed).
I ask for a patch of earth, sizeable such that I may pitch a backpacking tent thereon, and therein I will sleep for my last 2 semesters at Reed.
Apart from that, I ask for nothing further. The college provides food (scrounge), showers (sport’s center), connectivity (wifi), intellectual endeavours (ubiquitous). I needn’t even have access to nearby dwellings, only the patch of earth upon which the tent stands. I can financially compensate you for said patch, and I have lived out of a tent before.
I am very flexible. That is, if you wish for another member of the household, that can be. If you would like the tent to be highly temporary, that is, only erected when I sleep therein, that can be. If you find me quickly distasteful and wish me gone, that too can be.
I seek here to test the limits of material necessity, to invoke the ghost of Olde Reed, to thesis out of a tent. Help enable this journey?”
