Aaron Skinner! Hello fellow classmates and Professor Delwiche. My name is Aaron and I am a freshman here at Trinity. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first week here, and cannot wait to really get adjusted and find my niche on the Trinity campus. I was born in Buffalo, New York more than eighteen years ago, but I consider Columbia, Missouri to be my hometown. My family (two parents and an older sister) and I moved there when I was three years old, and over the following fifteen years I grew to call it home.
Although tennis is probably my greatest passion, I have many other interests, some athletic and others that are less sweaty. I will begin with the athletic ones since these have always been my biggest extra curricular. I have played tennis nearly my whole life; since I was old enough to walk I have had a racket in my hand. I played competitively throughout high school and am currently on the Trinity Tennis Squad. In addition to tennis, I’ve played basketball, baseball and soccer competitively at different times in my life; as well as martial arts, and swimming, at a more recreational level. I also love to watch sports, possibly even more than playing them. My favorites are basketball and football, and both seasons are just around the corner! Other than athletics, I enjoy relaxing, listening to music, watching television, or just hanging out with my friends or girlfriend. I have a terrific girlfriend who is from Fairbanks, Alaska, which is where Chuck Klosterman sold ice machines to Eskimos! As far as music goes, I enjoy primarily rap. As for television, Family Guy and South Park are always classics.I am excited for my college experience and am interested to see what my academic passions will turn out to be. As of now, I am completely undecided as far as my major goes. The only course I found intriguing through high school was a psychology course; but, both my parents are psychologists and I am not sure if I want to follow in their footsteps. Hopefully, I will try a broad spectrum of classes here at Trinity and find something that absolutely fascinates me, and most importantly, makes that moolah! I have high expectations for this course, and if nothing else I hope to wise up to all the darn subliminal messaging out in the media today. Thanks for taking the time to learn a little about me!
