Quick update….

Hey there all! A quick update from Stanford! Things are really really fun here. A little ummm,m planned, but fun! I’ll tell you all in detail about the funness on Sunday, but right now, I have a date with a waffle machine…. ~m

The Muppets and Who?

I turned on our local PBS station, which, during the day at least, is all-Sesame all the time. The Sesame street monsters were fighting over who got to sing the alphabet song, when suddenly a tall, dignified black man walked in. “Surely that’s not…I mean, doesn’t he have better things to do?” But then he [...]

My Pretty…

Oh man it is so pretty I can hardly stand it. And it’s MINE! I just got back from “babysitting” for NHS hours at CDO. We were the childcare for a parenting class in the MPR. There were 15 of us and 5 kids. Mostly I worked on my problem set with Kevin, the other [...]

I have now made a really kick-ass outline of everything you’d ever want to know about Federalism in the context of the American system of [...]

AAAAA!

Check this out! Can we go? Please?

Run and hide.

Phun in Philly

Dad and I had an awesome time in Philly. I was hoping I’d hate it so that this whole decision would be easier, but no such luck. It was actually pretty cool, although I must say that the Stanford ProFro I’ve met were friendlier than the Penn ones. Also, the Stanford crowd seems much less [...]
