Late-Night Chats

When I think back on this past year, one of the first things that comes to mind are my many late-night chats with Joe. Sometimes we talk about noble things: God, justice, the meaning of life. Other times, we just talk about shit.

Blurry, poorly lit and red-tinted as they are, I'm pretty happy that I got photos of one of our sessions. (How I'll miss these chats next year when he's no longer around to confide in and laugh with at all hours of the night!) Put simply, our talks have, in many ways, encapsulated the essence of college. Formal dorm programs and on-campus events are great for socializing and mingling, but 3 a.m. conversations with close friends are where the real magic of college life lies.

Gonna Get Married!

Joe (my housemate) and I escaped the rainy North this weekend to attend the wedding of our ex-housemate in...Mississippi! Unfortunately, I didn't get to take as many pictures as I would have liked but, man, was MS gorgeous! Ninety degrees? Sunny weather? This is my kind of town!

The best part, of course, was getting to see our precious Clare and meeting all of her wonderful family. Our time with all of them was incredible, and we wish we were back chilling out with them on their deck right now!

A Bronx Day

Nothing helps me love college more than visits from friends. This past Wednesday, my best friend from home visited and we had a "Bronx day." What might that entail, you ask? Well, start with mofongo for dinner (that's the fried plantain ball of deliciousness above) then follow it with a day at the New York Botanical Garden orchid show, and finish off with an afternoon of fresh meats, cheeses and bread from Arthur Ave.

Yes, we're foodies. The Bronx loves us that way.
