Enjoying my last couple of days as an undergrad…

The beginning of the end (…of this chapter)

April 23, 2013 § Leave a comment

Today was the last day of classes. Soon it will be the last paper. Then the last exam. Then the last  dinner with  friends. Then the last night of revelry and the last night as an undergrad. And then I start again. The future awaits and I’m not sure if I’m ready for it. My mind is a storm of thoughts but here is an article that eloquently expresses the feelings that I am having trouble processing.

In the meantime, forever go blue.

A spring day.

March 31, 2013 § Leave a comment

A perfect spring day is just what the doctor ordered. A sunny walk to the farmer’s market, lunch at the delicious Zingerman’s Delicatessen, a bike ride to Trader Joe’s and a quick trip to Whole Foods all led up to a night in with friends, food, wine and basketball. Spring has finally visited MI and the birds are chirping away.

So, farmer’s markets at the end of winter in Michigan do not have any produce. I was expecting rows and rows of fresh asparagus, peas, artichokes, strawberries and kiwis. Instead, there were rows and rows of baked goods, and the occasional carton of eggs. It took every ounce of self-restaint to not buy every single scone, muffin, loaf of bread or croissant. One blueberry muffin with sugar sprinkled on top and a large English Breakfast tea kept me happy!

We planned on drinking sangria at one of our favorite seasonal bars to end the day, but basketball and an unexpected visitor kept us in our living room all night. Some of our freshman year crew came over and we spent the night being as silly and ridiculous as we did back then. Cheers to a fabulous spring day.

Shared anxieties.

March 25, 2013 § Leave a comment

This past weekend I spent time with my cousin, Julia, who was visiting University of Michigan as a potential student, and my uncle who came along for the excitement. Julia and I are four years apart. I remember as I was heading off to college, she was heading off to high school. Here we are, four years later, and I’m graduating college as she’s about to begin. Time plays tricks on you but I’m glad I have Julia as a reminder of what four years looks like. I remember exactly how she’s feeling right now: itching to be on her own and excited to start her independent life. Independence is invigorating, thrilling and addicting. But four years later, I can’t help but almost burst with joy every chance I can go home and have my parents take care of me. While we’re both at different stages in our lives, we found comfort in discussing our shared excitements and anxieties for new chapters in our lives over Sunday brunch.
