On Sunday I touched the Pacific Ocean for the first time! It was certainly a chilly experience, but hey, I was standing on a beach in the ocean in late November, so I couldn’t complain. My sister and her good friend joined me for a lovely study break to the Santa Monica Beach, which included a delicious lunch, lots of pictures, amazing gelato, and some great boutique shopping. With one final week of classes ahead of the Caltech girlies, a trip to the beach was the perfect way to de-stress and be reminded that there is life beyond textbooks and problem sets.
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!
