Welcome to Notes from a Far-Flung Correspondent, which features the weekly interests and musings of Bossy’s Son, who is currently enjoying his sophomore year at Columbia University in the City of New York.
This week: Random Occurrences.
el infierno interminable Midterms Week! After a week and a half of being buried by midterms and essays, I’m just about as fried as a person can get. So, in exchange for a well-woven tale — and yes, I understand that my posts thus far may not necessarily have been tales nor well-woven — I present to Bossy’s Council four random thoughts from the vaults of my camera phone.
Thought #1 -– Spring has sprung! A few days of warm weather have brought the huddled Columbia masses yearning to break free from the libraries out onto The Steps. Sure, daytime class attendance may be down, but at least spirits are up!
Thought #2 -– Towards the end of last semester, I hit the lottery! Sort of. More specifically, my name was selected at random along with some fellow students and one professor to attend a New York Knicks basketball game at the Garden, free of charge. Granted, the Knicks are just about as good as my fifth grade team, but it was still a blast to go.
Thought #3 -– Sure, midterms may be stressful, but as long as I have this picture on my phone, a hearty chuckle is never far away. (Thanks, Pop.)
Aaaaaaand Random Thought #4 -– For those of you concerned with my culinary escapades, fear not -– Thursday night potlucks are alive and well.
