This time I'm rooming with another LGO. Without grand plans that we HAD to pick something by the end of LGO recruiting week in November, we managed to tour a few apartments and make a final decision. Having that all set for when I came back was SO handy and made the housing process much less stressful. First years - I would recommend doing something like this - do not wait until you're almost back at MIT to find housing! We'll be living just north of Central square in a 2-bed, 2-bath and I'm excited to see how things go.
Before Christmas, but to get in the spirit, I went to see the Trans Siberian Orchestra play at the TD Garden in Boston. They were performing a new Christmas album and so the story that flowed through the first half of the concert was different than the one I had heard before. As always their playing, as well as their lights and stage set-up, was fantastic!
|Two of the players ran out along the audience in the floor seats and then were raised directly up, while two others were on these crane type pieces of the mainstage and were raised out over the audience!|
Now that the holidays are over, besides enjoying the time off and the fact that I bid correctly to get all the classes I wanted this spring, it's time to get back to (or start) things again. Things like thesis writing and preparing for knowledge review (when all the LGO 2nd years, now done with their internships, talk about what they've done and learned in that six month period). All in all, January's schedule is more flexible than last year, though Domestic Plant Trek, was certainly a good time.
Finally, when visiting a friend in PA, I managed to make it onto a local TV station's report. Check it out!
