12 days until my summer officially starts. Before then, 5 finals (3 in class, 2 take-home), 1 gigantic malaria eradication proposal, 800+ prospective students to work with on New York State Open House Day, and 1 last visit to the Ithaca Farmer’s Market.
113 days from now, I’ll be 5233 miles south of Ithaca, starting my 4 month adventure in South America with ~15 other college students from around the US. Before then, I’ll have to make my 4th study abroad-related trip to Gannett Health Services to get yet another health form filled out. By the time I leave for Chile, I will have walked those 5233 miles across Cornell’s campus just to get the 10 billion forms signed for my semester abroad.
Fortunately, May 16th won’t be my last day in Ithaca before I head to the southern hemisphere. I’ll be back for 6 action-packed days in June to work as a clerk for the class of 1993 at Cornell reunion.
Here’s to summer. So close, yet so far.
