First Blog

Well, now that school is over, I can concentrate on bigger things, such as chemistry at Columbia. I am glad there is a two week "mini-vacation" because I'm not ready. I did not realize that our trip is less than two weeks away, and now I'm feverishly making a list of what I need to pack and buy. I went to my orthodontist today, and the secretary said that her daughter lives in Manhattan and that it's been raining for a while. I better go find my umbrella. I also read over the checklist and found my flashlight.

I just finished reading last year's Columbia blog, and one thing that I got from it was that they were always busy and always had things to do. I can't wait to experience the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple, and the subway that slinks through it. One thing I really do want to see is Nathan's Famous hot dog eating contest at Coney Island. Another thing that I remembered after I read the blog was to bring bug spray. Bugs love me, about as much as I hate their bites. I looked through the picture slideshows and I noticed they were always in overcast weather. One thing that I know I will miss is the sunny California weather. I'm still reading about Vassar, UPenn and June Chu, Columbia, Bard, NYU, and the all important New York City. I hope to finish my Ivy League assignment by tonight.

All I can say is that I'm really excited to go to the other side of the country!

Oh! I want to go to the 4th of July celebration too.

Also, thanks for the reminder about the umbrella!

Isn't it wonderful that we're sending you all to one f the best educational facilities in the country and what we're reading about are hot dog eating contests, comic book stores and shopping malls? Where have we failed you, Cristina? Where did we go wrong?

Promise me that you'll actually attend a class or two while you're there?
