I enjoy eating my mother’s potato salad …. it is a gift from the Gods, even though it is the nutritional equivalent of injecting pure cholesterol into your arteries. Ohhh yesss … *drools*
The Postal Service sounds ten times better with headphones. And speaking of The Postal Service, their song “Such Great Heights” is being used in so many freaking commercials now. Watch out guys, they are breaking out into pop culture … *tear runs down cheek*
So I guess you guys are dying to find out how my first days of school went …. No you say? Are you sure? Okay then. I won’t bore you. I’ll talk about my weekend instead … I suppose that will have to suffice.
I went to Boston over the weekend to check out some colleges – mainly just to check out Boston College and Boston University …. but having asian parents, it was NECESSARY to check out Harvard and MIT even though I really have no interest in applying to those colleges (or chance in getting into those colleges I should say). I guess it was their own little way of coping with the fact that none of their children were smart enough to go there.
Harvard proves to be one of the most depressing campuses I’ve ever seen. There was just an air of evilness and darkness that overwhelmed the campus despite the beautiful weather that Boston had been experiencing that day. The campus was so barren and so boring … I imagine all of the students studying away in their rooms for a multiple-choice test the following morning on The True Meaning of Human Existence. Perhaps an excerpt from Conan O’Brien’s commencement speech to the graduating Harvard class of 2000 will better explain what Harvard is like.
Students of the Harvard class of 2000, 15 years ago I sat where you sit now. And I thought exactly what you are now thinking. What’s going to happen to me? Will I find my place in the world? Am I really graduating a virgin? Still have 24 hours. Roommate’s mom very hot. Swear she’s checking me out. There was that Rob Lowe movie.
You see, in those days, I was 6 feet 4 inches tall and I weighed 150 pounds. True. Recently, I had some structural engineers run those numbers into a computer model, and according to the computer, I collapsed in 1987, killing hundreds in Taiwan.
After freshman year, I moved to Mather House. Mather House, incidentally, was designed by the same firm that built Hitler’s bunker. In fact, if Hitler had conducted the war from Mather House, he would have shot himself a year earlier. Saved us a lot of trouble.
And you thought the Garden State soundtrack was the must have for this summer …
