DONE. I am done. With my first semester of the masters program. One year ago, I wouldn\’t think I would be here. I wouldn\’t have thought that I would have made friends with the people I have.
But in sum, this semester I:
went to more bars than I can count on my two hands
but I never took a sip
am still a non-drinker
yet I have dealed with too many whyaren\’tyoudrinking questions
went to more parties than I ever did in undergrad
used Verizon for the first time and never worried about my minutes
because EVERYONE uses it and there\’s unlimited mobile to mobile
took the bus every day, something I had sworn against doing in Berkeley…
went to free food events every week, developed a nose for free food, and shamelessness when walking into anything even though I know I don\’t belong
developed some anti-undergrad feeling
AM one of the youngest in my program!
became good friends with one CHRIS and dropped the other one
I still know too many Chrises
lost my id once
experienced my first snowfall
saw Jimmy Eat World for the second time!
and Taking Back Sunday!
all while I had a 100 degree fever!
got a locker which I just used to stash all my food supplies
ate too much pizza – free, of course
experienced a chocolate fountain
talked too much, gossiped too much, smiled too much, laughed too much
learned how to pack my first snowball
attended a Kerry rally and actually voted for the first time in a presidential election
flew to San Diego for Thanksgiving
started to dislike flying
had 10+ hour meetings for group homeworks
started to use the word awesome
maxed out my AIM buddy list every week
become very pro-Apple
lived in a world where (almost) everyone had a Mac and learned to look down on PC users
got along with people 4 years older than me!
