I miss you, too Javier! About three weeks until we’re back in New Haven though! Oh and by the way, I’m gonna strangle you. Remember that time during Spring Break when we were at Marshall’s and you said you didn’t tell my dad anything while I was trying on those pants you found me? WELL I KNOW YOU DID! My dad is always trying to bring up conversations that involve relationships/dating/etc., so in retaliation I just say I’m with you and my dad shuts up real quick. I hope you’re happy.
One of the paralegals who’s puerto Rican told me he’s gonna bring flan for my last day of interning tomorrow (forgetting I was in a professional setting I creepily shouting “I love you” and moaned), and a few others are taking me out to the most banging ass Puerto Rican restaurant for lunch. I feel the love, and it tastes so damn good.
“You know how, like in cartoons, when the building gets hit by the wrecking ball, right before the building falls down, there’s always like this moment where it’s perfectly still right before it collapses? We’re in that moment. The wrecking ball has already hit all of this, and this is just the moment before it all falls down.”—The Future
Hi! I have a question about Yale, if you don't mind answering it (: And if you're super annoyed with Yale questions, I totally understand and this can just rot away in your inbox. Anyways- I'm going to a small private college in PA but I really want to study at Yale next summer. I was wondering if you knew anything about the summer sessions? I've pretty much stalked the website, but any info from a current student would be so appreciated! Thanks in advance (:
Hey I don’t mind at all! Unfortunately I don’t think I have much insight about the summer sessions. I know there are a lot of people on campus, and all the summer session students stay in Pierson (?) if not nearby off campus. It’s a good amount of work, but still pretty laid back I hear. The one weekend I did go up to campus while summer session was on, it was a lot of fun with stuff going on. The Pierson master is strict with telling the students no alcohol in the dorms for the summer, but it’s still super easy to find parties/things to do right off campus (which is not far at all). Oh yeah I was about to forget, it is super fucking hot in those rooms lol. I’m pretty sure you’ll die without one. That’s pretty much all I know. Hope I helped!
I know there are a few Yalies following me who are in New Haven this summer so hopefully they see this and put their two cents in!
Went to another lunch seminar hosted by the NAACP, Latino Justice, and AALDEF, and one of the speakers were one of the BAMF woman ever. She is on a ton of boards dealing with immigration and civil rights issues, and she’s such an amazing speaker. She spoked with so much passion, and didn’t just use big words to sound educated. She talked like she was with friends, and used phrases like, “no shit Sherlock”, “I’m so tight”, “where you at” in a professional setting and I fell in love hahaa. I feel like it made her speech so much better because she sounded so real, and not rehearsed at all. Glad to see people who talk just like me doing big things lol
does anyone else follow people on tumblr that they really hate and its like fascinating in the way that a train wreck is, and all of their posts are annoying and make you hate them more but you can’t unfollow them and if you finally do unfollow them you feel like you finally quit smoking or some shit and you’re super proud of yourself but still sometimes check out their tumblr secretly
It’s great to know no matter how long it’s been, we still keep in contact and meet up. Even if he moved a while ago, one of us will always hit the other one up and we’re always talking. I would’ve expect that from most of my friendships, at least with my closest ones. It kinda blows when you finally stop hitting a friend up, and they don’t even bother to notice. It sucks even more when they’re like right now the block and you haven’t seen them in weeks. I’ll be back in school soon enough I guess.
Whenever a lawyer sits down in the break room during lunch with me, awkward small talk generally ensues. Whenever an office worker comes in, we end up talking for the entire time laughing and cursing at ridiculous shit we seen.
“I wanna be like a social justice themed superhero that dresses in like Mayan garb, fights with a big fucking hammer (called the hammer of justice obvi) and like shoots fucking rainbow lasers out of my hands. Also, little kids aren’t allowed to dress up as me unless they’re of Mayan descent because that would be cultural appropriation, and I’d sue any big corporation who tried to use my image to make money. Also, my main superpower would be the power of education. It’s no use to hate the white man. We only need to hate ignorance.”—
I think you’re my favorite person whose elocution I abhor. Like, I love you and all, I really do, but WILLIAM. WILLIAM. WHAT?
I honestly thought people were gonna relate to me on this one. Well I was wrong hahaaa. Also, you’re probably gonna hate me even more because when I read elocution, I pronounced it as aloe-q-shin. I’m sorry.
