I apologize if I had any of my dear readers worried that I had finally succumbed to Intermediate Micro! Nope, thankfully, I survived five finals, two days of packing, and one six-hour drive. I’ve been back in Maryland for about a week now, and I haven’t yet had too much time to reflect on my [...]

I wrapped up my last class of sophomore year this afternoon! That whole halfway-done-with-college thing continues to freak me out, but remembering that I still have to pass my classes is another story entirely. For the epic turn of events that made April the best month of my life, this semester has been my most [...]
In response to a comment from a prospective student, I’d like to take some time to describe my experience, with a specific focus on the very busy April I have had with Cornell Tradition. Last Saturday was the National Volunteer Week kick-off event, where I think I had the most fun I’ve had volunteering… ever? [...]
Last night, my Labor Economics professor was kind enough to invite a few of us over to his home for dinner. I have nothing but wonderful memories of his class, a 17-person writing seminar in which we got to develop our own original research project and write it into a substantial term paper. With some [...]
April is crunch time for everyone. Today has been fairly typical of a busy (but very fun!) April day: 9:00: Breakfast in Keeton House with Michelle et al. 10:00: Meeting with my HR professor in Ives about my group’s term paper: interrupted by fire alarm. 10:30: Arrive late to an interview for the new members [...]
I love not having class on Friday as much as the next upperclassman, but this harmonious arrangement never seems to really be a “day off.” I’ll be up at 8:00 this Friday, hitting the gym before breakfast with my beloved Michelle. The next three hours will be shared between work for Research Assistantship #1 and [...]
I’ve done four interviews for summer jobs thus far, and three of them were conducted over the phone. I chalk up this arrangement to my interest in the public sector, which is generally not known for having loads of extra cash with which to conduct on-campus recruiting. Instead of rocking a suit around Ives Hall [...]
Ok, it wasn’t that angry, but I’m still excited for my journalistic debut!
A very thoughtful post on the always excellent MetaEzra got me thinking of the Keith Olbermann/Ann Coulter Ivy League smackdown and what it means for daily life at Cornell in 2009. (Quick recap: Coulter insinuated that the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, from which Olbermann received his degree in communications, was “Old MacDonald Cornell” [...]
Every Thursday night is reserved for weekly reunion dinners with the ILRies I don’t get to see anymore. For a school as small as ILR, it’s actually quite possible to lose track of people when you don’t have classes with them. Accordingly, I dined with one of my dear friends from Stats and Labor Law, [...]
