David B. Cholewiak: I am a senior from Lawrenceville, New Jersey, and over the past four years I have managed to cultivate an intimate and at times co-dependent relationship with the past. A victim of time, I realize that all things must pass and have made it my life-long ambition to neglect the present and future, in hopes of continually living in the past. I find solace in the old Latin dictum "Hesternam Carpe Diem" ("seize yesterday"). My personal interests include group mediation, basic car mechanics, and consulting Dante and Samuel Adams for suggestions on the meaning of life.
