Bye Bye Summer

So, here I am back at good ol' Cornell. Craziness. I have yet to fully grasp the fact that summer is really over. Being here has just been fun so far. Lots of friends to see, a big house to organize and decorate, lots of fun things to do. Even going to classes wasn't so bad! I'm only taking 15 credits this semester, so I'm hoping I'll be able to enjoy it... but let's be real, classes are classes, and mine are all engineering. But on the bright side, I'm in my last semester of engineering math!! I can't even express how excited I am to be done with that.

So the house is pretty cool. It's not as sketch as most... very clean and spacious. It acutally feels like a house :) And there's an empty room... so if you need a place to live, let me know!! And if you're here and haven't come over, you should! I love to have visitors!

So, summer ended nicely... here's a picture of me in my pink hard hat on the construction site:

Yeah, I know you're just about as jealous as all those construction workers.

So, the craziness of life is starting to pick up again. It's funny how busy we let ourselves get... no not let, insist. we crave busyness... we are obssessed with it. When we're not busy, we're bored and 'lazy'. I don't think it's very healthy. But hey, I'm probably the number one culprit, so who am I to talk!? I just chatted with Elizabeth (she says hi to all and she misses everyone here at school!) and she said she was going to work for a while and then travel in the spring. She said she considered going to Israel to live in a commune. Wow. Could you imagine? I kick myself for getting so caught up in the craziness of classes and clubs and all the other craziness... and I never even allow myself to entertain the possibility of doing something different. something unique. something not so in line with the American standard, but what I want. what i love. what i value. something that doesn't necessarily fit into the mold. something maybe not so busy and stressful, but meaningful nonetheless.

so, that's what i've been thinking about. take it or leave it. i'm glad that you at least read it :)
