It's the Little Things

Most of the time, I miss the obvious things about MIT: my friends, challenging classes, La Verde's infinite selection of drinks, Boston's awesomeness. Every now and then, though, something little catches me off guard and I spend the rest of the day pining for the T and Sebastians sandwiches.

Today: chirping at a crosswalk.

I was biking to class, and as I was stopped at an intersection, I heard that familiar chirping noise. I was oddly disappointed when it seemed to stop short, and then I realized I wasn't standing at 77 Mass Ave, waiting to rush across four lanes to get to a class or meeting. And then I really realized I wasn't standing at 77 Mass Ave and wouldn't get to for a while (at least not as a legit MIT student).

:/ What term are you applying to come back?

That photo is absolutely gorgeous, by the way.

I'm probably going to apply to come back next spring, but there are a lot of factors that are going to come into play, not all of which are remotely stable at the moment. :(

And thanks! It's one of my favorite photos I have of MIT. :)
