I was talking to some of the people in this house a few days ago about how I felt so awkward being at main campus over the weekend. But then, on the drive up North Broad Street, I told them that the first words that popped out of my mouth were: “We’re home.” Isn’t it funny how you feel more at home at a place you’ve been for 4 months compared to a place you’ve been for a year and a half?
Serious and sentimental tone aside, we MCPCers are having a fantastic last few weeks (no, don’t cry yet). Well, I guess with the exception of all the papers and exams and stress. But anyhow, we went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art last week thanks to the wonderful RA of the month AJ (the taller Asian girl with the bigger eyes than the other Asian girl). It was–to be honest–a little overwhelming. But we did some photoshoots, chilled, and all in all, had a wonderful time. Then last Wednesday we headed off to the Phillies vs. Pittsburgh Pirates game! Unfortunately, there was only one Pirates fan from MCPC and…the Pirates won. It was my first baseball game in the States; Philly has converted me into being more interested in sports! We had the heavenly Old Bay fries that might not have been so heavenly for our body, but oh well, YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE.
At the Phillies game. What a great night with great people and great food!
P.S. Celebration Weekend is coming up! *weeps and rejoices* Keep your heads up for exciting posts to come as we SPRINT through these last moments–together!
