Be Drunk and Passionate

Hi, I guess I should introduce myself.

My name is Kali Vuki, I'm in your Humanities 1010 MW at 3-4:15. I'm a typical college student when I admit that I really don't know a lot about the study of humanities. But that's what this class is for right? I really did not have anything interesting about me to say on the first day of school so here are a few things:

I am the only girl of 6 boys
When I grow up I want to figure out what I want to do with my life
I've had a fish hook stuck in my eyelid.

Alright, that last one made it awkward. So let's get down to what this blog post really is about. 

It took me awhile to figure out which article could I relate to but I would have to say that I relate to more to Be Drunk by Charles Baudelaire and I would have to argue against Mark Edmundson. I think it's great to be drunk, not alcoholic drunk, but knowledge drunk. I would advise any one to be under the influence of their surroundings and open to knowledge. I would have to say that in order to be drunk on life people need to have an  uninhibited open mind.

I would like to argue against Mark Edmundson saying that students are passionless. I know there may be some students that are a passionless. But most students, like myself, have passion. I know what passion is, I've seen passion, I have felt passion. Some people may not see others when they are passionate but that does not mean that they have none. 

Rather than speculating, one must observe an individual to know what it would be like to be drunk on knowledge and/or passionate about life. It all depends on the person.
