The Night Before

August 30, 2010

Twas the night before Senior year and all through the dorm

My residents were chatting and burning popcorn.

My books were spread on my futon with care

In hopes that  for class I would best be prepared.

I laid out my clothing all ready for bed

While visions of syllabi danced in my head.

And as I switched off the light and turned on the fan

I thought back three years to how it all had begun.

An acceptance letter, a flurry of forms,

A plane ticket northwest and off to the dorm.

Far and away and all on my own

Who’d’ve thought Granville soon would be home?

As a first year I certainly had much to learn

Of street signs and vacuums and income returns

By round  two I was finally finding the way

Rugby and history were  my double forte

And last year, of course, things just kept getting better

My anatomy cat could not have been deader (okay, fine. you try rhyming with “better”)

But in all seriousness it’s been quite a ride

It’s hard to believe I’m near the far side

And now on this eve as I ready my gear

Happy studying to all and to all a good year


Oh the People You’ll See

I saw this family the other day and could not resist taking a picture!

This is one of the reasons I love DC in the summer 🙂
