Finals came and went: Econ was a DOOZIE, that pretty much sums up the most eventful part of Finals.
Sprints came and went: Got some silver hardware, the race was one of the best (and closest) I have ever coxed.
Boys came and went too: See following entry.
I’m back home in California. Still jobless, still internshipless. I’ve been searching since March; now a good two months and 15 phone interviews later, I am still looking for a bite. I’m not sure if it is because I sound intimidating on the phone, or if I’m just not qualified, but it is rather discouraging to not receive an offer from the other end. I’m trying not to take the rejections (or lack of correspondence) personally, but if I could just get some feedback, that would give me a better sense of closure.
I ran into my town’s Board of Education President on Saturday, who invited me to a special event in honor of his friend. I thought, why not? The event was at the Regency Club in Westwood, I could have the opportunity to network with people and get out of the house. I showed up for the event with my friend Carolyn. When we were led to the 17th floor and saw all the suits and well-dressed people schmoozing, we knew this wasn’t your average meet and greet hour. So this friend turned out to be Bill Richardson, who yesterday announced his intention to run for the Presidency. The cocktail hour was held to honor his faithful Los Angeles supporters, many of whom are very well-known in the entertainment industry (I was too chicken to approach Jodie Foster). Talk about friends in high places. And while I don’t have any immediate desire to enter politics, I found it a good opportunity to, well, meet the Governor of New Mexico, and others.
Well, I guess it’s my time to say adieu for a few months. Thanks to everyone who made this project possible (hck1, I know you’re reading this), who supported the 6 bloggers (Mr. Bruce, among others), and who responded to the bloggers. We’ll be refreshed and back in action in August.
