Today was another nasty day of quasi-rain and lots of work. Whereas yesterday I was able to sit outside and finish up a few worksheets on a bench outside of the library, inside was the only option today. A friend and I ventured upstairs and through some daunting book stacks until we happened upon this lovely spot in the back of the library. I love the huge windows and all of the natural light they provide, even on the gloomiest of days. In fact, many of the buildings on the Union College campus sport similarly impressive windows. They always remind me of the Athenaeum on the Caltech campus — somewhere I had the pleasure of eating at twice when I visited my sister back in March (some Caltech students are never invited to eat there during their four grueling years!).
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
