yeah, i did.  i'll probably just have to wait around for a bit for them to put my name in the computer or something...

it's nice to see a familiar face, though!  i haven't broken the news to the penn people yet, but i think they already know somehow

Yeah, definitely. I still can't say I'm 100% certain, but, at the same time, I don't think anything will happen to sway me away from Harvard. It's just weird because for the past two months, I was absolutely certain that I would be oging to Penn, and to have it all turned around in just a week is kinda unsettling - but I think I'm getting used to it more and more by the day.

Were you at the 4/5 ASD at Penn by any chance?

yeah, i know how you feel.  after spending last weekend in philly trying to figure out the apartment situation, i returned to austin to find an email from toby in my inbox asking if i was still interested...needless to say, that turned my world completely upside down. 

i can't believe i finally have some real closure, though.  what a sigh of relief.

and yeah, i was at the penn preview on 4/5.  were you there, too?

Yeah, exactly. I already made plans to take time off work and fly out to Philly in a few weeks to look for an apartment, I had everything figured out and squared away, and that e-mail was just like a lightning bolt - but I'm not complaining, of course.

Yeah, I was at the 4/5 preview. I'm trying to remember if I actually met you in person. Did you sit in on the constitutional law class?

Congrats to the newest admits! Hope I will meet you in a few months!

...on an unrelated note, Weather.com says it's 43 degrees in Cambridge right now, and it feels like 35...I think I'm going to need some kind of support group for transplanted southerners! I mean, it's 62 here right now, and I walked outside a little earlier and went "BRR! It's freezing today!!"

i've lived in 3 states:  mississippi, louisiana, and texas.  i'm guessing the weather is going to come as a huge shock for me.  having lived in austin for 4 years, i don't consider it truly hot until it hits 95...

...and cold for me is in the upper 50s.

It's going to be a painful adjustment. I'm too used to the super-mellow weather in the Bay Area.

You guys are going to have a fun time.  Two words: long underwear.

Hah. Well, that's the funny thing - I spent my formative years in Russia, so I should be used to the cold...but then again, it's been years since I've seen snow (excluding weekend trips to Tahoe), and I think I'm just spoiled now by the Bay Area climate.

I've never seen a good coat of snow on the ground.
