This weekend my ski trip to Okemo was a major success! I spent almost the entire day skiing and really felt myself making a lot of progress. The conditions were definitely not ideal for a beginner skier (read: brutal sheets of ice down hill into trenches of fluffy, killer powder), but I only fell a handful of times and always got back up! Learning anything new is always a challenge, but I really enjoy putting my mind to something and then achieving it. Learning how to ski is the perfect challenge for me this winter; I love being active and any reason to love a cold, previously miserable season sounds good to me! I’m looking forward to some more Thursday and Saturday trips this week. See you on the slopes!
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!
