Insanity to the Max

Tuesday, August 28th, 2007 @ 1:44 | MIT & Boston, Stuff

In the past 72 hours, I’ve probably ran around and done more random things than I have in the past two or more years, easily. Orientation is absolutely nuts here. The school year is nuts too, but in a different direction.

  • Finally taken Snuffles to full throttle on a smooth stretch of sidewalk.
  • Glow-in-the-dark-light-up Ultimate Frisbee
  • Liquid Nitrogen ice cream. ’nuff said.
  • Helped build a giant… dual hamster wheel doohickey with a shopping cart in the middle. Check the Facebook album. It’s too weird to describe.
  • Swam through a giant pit of packing peanuts. I’m still finding bits of foam falling off me in random spots.
  • Pushed a semi-destroyed paper-mache elephant through the streets of Cambridge
  • And the beat goes on.
  • Way too much free food.

Things are winding down a bit, but events continue throughout the week. Classes are poised to start next Wednesday – we’ll see how that goes.
