Alas, I didn’t actually have spring break in Malibu Beach, nothing like the week of drunken revelry that sometimes happens in college. That’s not what this blog post is about. My sister and her boyfriend came to visit me and Ethan in Boston.
reflecting on the last year, and then imagining the possibilities of the new year.
One of the only things I have always been absolutely certain about in my life was that I wanted to have a dog. I begged my parents for one as a kid, always promising to take care of it, but my parents were never on board. This summer, my dreams came true.
what’s been going on? where have I been? read me to find out.
There’s nothing quite as bittersweet as the last day of a trip. We wandered around the city of Sofia, browsing the shops and the sights, trying not to think about the fact that the hours were running out.
After just one night in Sofia, the four of us (me, Yana, my mom, and my grandma) set off for a few days in Cyprus. The flight is about two hours from Sofia to Larnaca, made all the more enjoyable by the fact that we got seats with extra legroom.
Thursday morning found us sleepy-eyed at the bus station, continuing the hunt for iced coffee, but otherwise ready for the journey to the coastal city of Varna. The six-hour bus ride was a lovely way to see the countryside.
I was 14 the last time I visited the country in which I was born. I had some understanding and appreciation of the culture and the history I encountered, but this time around I’m even more appreciative.
I have been waiting for this day almost since I started MIT. When I was a freshman, it was just a day I looked forward to. When I wondered if MIT was the place I was meant to be, I didn’t know if this day would ever come. When I came back, with renewed commitment to MIT, this day meant even more.
What prompted me to start this blog, my hopes and dreams for this year, and a bit of background.
