The Completely Average Life

Posted by on Monday, August 8, 2011 in College Life, Summer.

It’s been a while, reader. You’ve had three months to sit and reflect and continuously re-read my last post, refreshing every few hours for the entirety of the summer in hopes that you’ll be rewarded with a new one… and here it is.

Unlike TC, I lack the ability to remember even highly important facts from earlier in my lifetime, so my summer narrative is going to be lacking in comparison. With that in mind, just don’t read his articles until after you read mine, please? I knew I could count on you.

The entire month of May is missing from my memory, and I suspect this is due to the fact that after leaving Vanderbilt and finals (I wrote my last blog entry at 2 am-ish before my Differential Equations final), I went home and proceeded to be lazy and do nothing noteworthy! Lots of reading, catching up on sleep, hiking, and general summer-y activities. Regrettably, I was unable to seek out a legitimate internship this summer because of the amount of time I’d be spending out of town. Oak Ridge National Laboratory (only a few minutes from my house) offers some excellent science, engineering, and math internships, as well as opportunities in fields like public policy or economics. Strong likelihood I’ll be applying there next summer!

June crept around, and with it came a trip to see my cousin graduate high school in Michigan, and a trip to visit a friend in Florida, fulfilling my annual beach quota. The latter half of the month was then spent preparing for Air Assault School, which will be addressed in a separate article.

Thanks for showing such interest, reader. I can always count on you.

Me at the beach.
See you soon!
