Life Update

Oh my gosh. One full year at Yale is over. You know it's amazing how much can change in a year. All four years of high school weren't as eventful as the past year has been for me. I'm shocked when I think of the Juniors (Year behind me always), who are just getting ready to graduate high school, and consider that I walked across that stage under one year ago. As you might have guessed, the fact that I'm writing again means that finals are over! I think I did well on the ones I had.

After Finals, I took a much needed breather and threw myself a James Bond Party! Mainly because James Bond is awesome. The party was a huge success and a great way for me to close out the year with all my Yale friends (Who, since they are reading this, should come visit me in Michigan this summer...PLEASSSEEE!!). Unlike some of my friends who have departed for Hong Kong, Europe or other exotic locales, I only made it to Old Campus after finals. I'm spending a week working on the Commencement Issue of the YDN and helping out with lights for the commencement musical. So far, it's been a great time. It's nice to bum around campus without considering which classes I have work due in. In addition, we just hacked out a great cover/theme idea for the paper today, so things are coming along well!

Before I moved in to old campus, I had a few days off to get certain things in order. For example, I got to take a day trip to New York. It's amazing how much you can fit in a day! I managed to finally get Rush tickets to Wicked (3rd try is a charm) and also packed in some shopping and good food. There's a great italian pasta place on 50th and 9th if anyone is in the area. Try the Gnocchi!

So that's been my past couple weeks. Unfortunately, all this fun means I jammed the start date of my internship right up against my return flight. So i get home Tuesday night and go right to work on Wednesday. Oh well! There's lots of little side things I hope to accomplish this summer, so I'll keep you posted on those.

For now, I'm swamped again with work somehow...I guess it's good to stay busy! But it's good to be done with classes in any case. Thanks for sticking with the blog and check back over the summer for more random meanderings!
