life & changes

I was listening to the this song tonight and it really resonated with me. Fun fact: I had never listened to this song before today.

Black Keys - Things Ain't Like They Used To Be

The mood of the song is a lot more angsty than I feel right now, but change is something that I have thought about lately. Life is built for change. If we always stayed exactly the same we would not fulfill the purpose of this life - to progress.

If I think back to myself even last summer, I see an almost completely different person - and I like that. I like that I have now lived on my own, worked on my own, and traveled on my own. I have driven more this summer than I ever had in my life, I have even better taste in music (truthfully), and I am getting to know myself and my personality in a deeper way.

I am still impulsive, impatient, and actually crazy, but I like to think that I have become a more thoughtful, grateful, and positive person somewhere along the way.

I will still never lose in a sass battle, but I have learned to listen and respect in new and more meaningful ways.

COTUS - Cats of The United States

I am not necessarily fond of cats, but I thought this was intriguing.


Cats that resemble presidents? Pretty cool.

summah lovin'

Why do I never blog? It's a problem.

Here are some things that I have done over the summer!

Saw the U.S.S. Constitution and Bunker Hill :

Visited the Mansions in Providence, Rhode Island:

Sent 600 new-student mailings to Wellesley College's Class of 2016 (that's my co-coordinater, Gissell!)

Went home to and saw Jackie Waldron graduate from high school and Sophie Jane was baptized by RJ!

On the 4th of July I went sailing, ate at Quincy market with friends, and watched fireworks from the Boston Harbor:

Helped plan the University Ward's first IndepenDANCE:

10 of us drove through MA and NH to visit our friend Liza in Camden, Maine. We went boating we ate some quality Maine Lobstah.

This past Thursday, Gissell and I were able to meet the President of Wellesley College, Kim Bottomly. 

And in case you are wondering, this is what I look like: 
I feel like I never see so many of you!


Up next: Many meetings for work, a trip to Palmyra, NY, roadtrip to CT and NYC (for the first time!), and then bracing myself for New-Student Orientation -- only 35 days until Student Leaders move-in and 43 until the first-years arrive! Game on. 

Summer state count: 5
2 to go!
