Alex Kogstad ’13 is frequently asked the Blackberry question: Is that a Blackberry? Can I have your PIN?

However, Kogstad’s Go-Phone, fully equipped with unlimited 30-second trial runs of Tetris—a perk that he’s used to his fullest advantage—is the furthest thing south of a Blackberry. It, to him, is the revered “Cranberry.”

Despite his throwback of a phone, Kogstad is no old-fashioned kind of guy. In fact, his preference of the new-age style of writing is why he joined Inklings in the first place.

Kogstad is not a fan of conventional English and its methodical approach of handing out assignments in bulk as opposed to individualized to the student. In Inklings, Kogstad feels he will be able to find something he’s interested in and invest his time in that as opposed to spending time writing something he doesn’t care all that much about.

“I like to read, I like to write—but I like to do it at my own pace,” Kogstad said. “You put your feelings into words, and you can paint a beautiful picture.”

Kogstad looks forward to painting these pictures in the upcoming year, even if he can’t download them on the Cranberry.
