California Adventuring with Olin Friends


The best day of my winter break started surprisingly early--7 am, which I'm pretty sure isn't actually supposed to happen on vacations. Vivian ('09) and I stumbled out of her house before her mother even woke up (I was staying with her family for a week), and headed straight for our all-time favorite breakfast joint: Jamba Juice. There's really nothing like a fresh fruit smoothie on a California morning.

Keeping Busy Over Winter Break

After I flew home in December, I flopped onto the couch with a book and a mug of tea, and barely got up over the next couple days. It helped that Bellingham, my hometown, was snowed in with an usually large amount of snow, and no one knew quite what to do.

It was a good thing I got some relaxing time in, because I've been busy scheming and scheduling and having fun since then.

During the first week of January, a bunch of Olin students flew in to visit me and go skiing and snowboarding at world-famous Mt. Baker.
