Happy Sunday, everyone! I can't believe it's been ten days since I last posted...I thought I had my blog scheduling all worked out.
But anyways, February is turning out to be an incredibly long, busy, fast-paced month. Midterm exams and papers are upon us and there is always another 284520 pages of reading to do. I'm also in the midst of applying to summer internships, which has been taking up nice bits of my day. Kappa duties have also grown within the past two weeks, so I've been just trying to keep up with all that--so many emails and excel spreadsheets. Multitasking and prioritizing have never been so important.
But it's all very exciting--with Kappa I'm getting some cool new finance/correspondence experience (finance? me? haha...) and just thinking about the summer and internship possibilities puts me in a happy place. Also, when I think about it--I just have to get through eight more days of classes. Then, I'll have a glorious two weeks of spring break.
I was happy to get a pause from all this yesterday, when my mom and brother drove up to see me. The weather was perfect (if a little rainy), we walked all over the Yale campus, had some Indian food, visited the Yale University Art Gallery and ended the visit with shakes at Shake Shack. It was so good seeing them!
But can we also talk about how I've never been to the Yale University Art Gallery? I'm a second semester sophomore--I've been here almost two years and the art gallery is basically right in the middle of campus. Plus, it's free and open to the public. I really have no excuse. I should visit more often, because the exhibits are fantastic and there is such variety for what seems like a small museum!
I think my favorite painting was Ferryboat at Night by Louis Michel Eilshemius. You can see it here.
