Happy Friday from the most northern-western part of MA before you get to New York and Vermont. I’m in Williamstown, visiting the aptly named Williams College for another day before I drive down to Cambridge and hunker down at the Charles for application fun for the rest of the weekend!
[One] If we’re not friends on Facebook, you didn’t see this article about my organization that made its way into the Chronicle of Higher Education this week. It’s long and so very necessary to read if you want to understand what I do and why I’m a little bit crazy. This is the second story Eric has written about us this year, and this one makes me cry more than the first, but they both make me cry for different reasons.
[Two] After I interrupted my regularly scheduled programming to rant about the lack of debate around gun control, my post on DIY photo coasters didn’t republish. One more thing to blame on guns… I kid. I kid. Kind of.
[Three] Max and Russ – I ordered end tables for the living room last week (as part of my “transition to fall” plan and I haven’t received any kind of status update on them from . It would be nice to know they were coming. Or when.
[Four] I’m going to NYC at the end of the month to present at College Board Forum. I finally realized that I can’t extend the trip and take the weekend to hang out in New York. I have to get back for apps. Adulting kind of sucks in that respect. (Also – the hotels are ridiculously expensive.) The latter part of the year has been REALLY expensive conference locations. It’s clear the economy has recovered in some ways.
[Five] I’m completely fascinated by fall so I’m just going to leave you with some pretty pictures from last night. Perhaps that also makes me lazy, but I’m not going to lie – I’m exhausted this morning but this is going to be what motivates me to get out of bed. (That and that fact that I’m on a business trip?)
