Every week, The Thrill features a member of a student-support organization to bring awareness about the various resources available to the student body on campus. This week, we’re featuring Sean Deryck’18. Stay safe this weekend, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help.
If you want to speak to a PC, they have Office Hours in the new Health and Counseling Center. Drop by and talk to a PC every Sunday-Thursday, 7-9 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays 5:30-7:30 p.m. Or call their 24/7 hotline at 740-398-3806.
Tell us about your hometown.
I’m from Honolulu, where it’s generally pretty warm, so I was completely unprepared for my first winter here. I didn’t really own a coat yet so I just layered sweatshirts and pretended that my raincoat was a warm outer layer. Generally it’s nice, though traffic is pretty bad. I almost never go to the beach, or when I do I don’t get in the water since I really don’t like salt water all that much.
What music have you been jamming to recently?
Kazoo Kid trap remix (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-sgw9bPV4A). My roommate (Eric Thornton) and I are considering covering the kazoo part. Anyone else with a kazoo may join in.
If you were a condiment, what would you be?
Salt because I’m always salty and I absorb a lot of water during the day if that counts as a condiment?
Describe your ideal meal.
Mac and cheese with a peanut butter milkshake it’s all the things I love in two foods.
If you were a rapper, what would your name be?
If I’m being totally honest it would be “Sticky Dicky” because of initials and all that, but I don’t know if that’s really what you guys want so I guess I’d also go with “Rappa S Seanny Cube”, generated by myrapname.com. Really hoping that name doesn’t catch on, though.
Why did you become a PC?
I’ve always found my peers to be a great resource to reach out to when I’ve needed it, and, because of how much help I’ve gotten from them in the past, I thought that joining the PC’s would be a wonderful way to give back, or pay forward all the support I’ve been shown. So far they’ve been a fantastic group, and I’m really glad to have been a part of it.
