It’s truly quite breathtaking, just how quickly time goes by here – it feels like every time I exhale it’s the weekend again… and I’m certainly not complaining
Last weekend was the Boston Novice Debate Tournament here at Harvard – 17 teams from Harvard and MIT, 4 preliminary rounds, 1 semifinals, 1 finals round. I was randomly paired up with Siddhartha Sinha from Culcutta, and we made it to the final round, only to face Shiming and his roommate who pulled an all-American history/politics case on us. Oh well.
Last weekend was also Parents’ Visiting Weekend, so the whole campus had it’s “happy face” on. I took the opportunity to visit the Peabody Museum with its famed “glass flowers” display with Ryan and his grandmother. And Saturday night, Xinwei and I had dinner with the families of both my roommates at the North End (yummy Italian food!).
Dinner at a fantastic Italian restaurant located in the North End of Boston. Ryan and his grandmother are seated to my left, followed by Doug’s aunt (mother’s sister) on the near end of my side of the table. Opposite me are Doug’s aunt and uncle (she’s the fraternal twin of Doug’s father) from NY, Doug, and nearest to the camera is Doug’s mother.

And this weekend? I’m planning a long-overdue trip to the MFA, and also a daytrip with the AAA to the outlet mall about an hour away. Plus we musn’t forget – it’s Halloween today! Lots of candy, and fun costume parties await…
