Plus, Sanaa’s here this weekend! It’s been a lot of fun showing her some of my favorite places at Vandy (that a few of you all now know as well ;), and I’m glad for a weekend just of relaxing and hanging out. I’m going to miss Hanna being my summer roommate, but I’ll see her during the school year too. I’m glad that I’ve gotten to get closer to her: the circumstances were completely unexpected for us being roommates, but I wouldn’t dream it differently. It was awesome!!! =D
Kind of on the same note, I was sad to say goodbye to my fellow interns. We’ve become quite the group at 2525, and I am hoping to stay in touch with a few of them… and already have future lunch plans with one lol. It was also hard to leave my work group Friday because I’ve become kind of a fifth group member rather than just an intern, if that makes any sense. To commemorate my last day, they took me out to lunch at PF Changs, which was delightful, and I tried a Chinese dumpling for the first time! Yum! =D
It’s been a good 10 weeks there, and I’m very thankful for the experience I had. I’m hoping to carry what I’ve learned into my future career, and the challenges I faced with the program really helped me to apply my knowledge beyond just the basic coursework and programs I’ve done… plus supplement it with some areas of Computer Science with which I had no previous experience. I kind of took this as a test run of what I could be doing with my future career, and I think I would enjoy it. I also have some ideas in my head of how I can specialize in graduate school, so we’ll see how those turn out.
In separate news, I finished The Fault in Our Stars this week! I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading John Green’s other novels very soon. Of course, that unfortunately meant that I haven’t finished editing the 50 Facts video I owe you all yet. It shall be completed very soon though :) Plus, I finally scheduled my GRE! I’m taking it August 17th… the same day that I’m going back down to Vandy. I go down in the morning with a few more things for the apartment, then take the GRE just after noon. After I’m done, Mark will pick me up (we’re going to see each other again for the first time since July! *squeals*), and we’ll go to the Move Crew (where upperclassmen move in freshman! It’s an awesome Vandy tradition!) meeting about an hour after he picks me up. YAY!
Also: I have the last Host Club volume!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m almost through reading it………… SO HAPPY. SO HAPPY. =D
The song for this week is a bit of a surprise. I actually heard it because of my dedicated watching of the Olympics every night on NBC: They’ve been doing a good job of advertising for their new series Chicago Fire, and the song track for the promo is this song. I really like the beat and mix of it, so I’m planning on looking up more by Imagine Dragons soon :) Have a great week guys!
