Posted by: Michael Coppola on November 29, 2009 Ah - that does indeed look epic. Do you guys hang out together [as a floor/unit/grouping/thingie] for many holidays? Posted by: Elias ('14?) on November 29, 2009 I love the picture-posts you've been creating! So most students don't head home for Thanksgiving? Posted by: makesense on November 29, 2009 I lol'd at the Ash Ketchum costume and I ROFL'd at the stick figure costumes!! Posted by: Su on November 29, 2009 @Elias, @makesense: Yep, we pretty much have a celebration for every in-school holiday. The Thanksgiving potluck was held before everyone left for break - most people do head home for T-givs - though I know there were still a good amount of people who stayed at MIT over the break. Typically, just about everyone goes home for winter break, though. Posted by: Jess on November 29, 2009 B1 is by far the best place to live at mit @makesense Our holiday parties are usually held the weekend before the actual party so that everyone can participate before they head home. Idk the campuswide numbers but if you decide to stay home for a holliday you definately won't be alone. Posted by: phox '13 on November 29, 2009 hahhahahaha, sim1. hahaha. i lovee youu jk!! p.s. Burton1 is actually as amazing as it seems :D Posted by: 0 on November 29, 2009 Burton-Conner looks awesome. I would definitely apply there if I got in. Posted by: Steph on November 29, 2009 I went to pika on the Sunday before Thanksgiving for their huge feast. Floor Pi (East Campus, Third West) had our own Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving Day with about 20 people - we also celebrate Festivus (google it) over IAP. From big biyearly retreats or traditional gaming showdowns between halls to small hall feeds or nightly cocoa, you'll find awesome tradition all around MIT :D Posted by: Piper '12 on November 29, 2009 awesome pics Posted by: navin on November 30, 2009 question: do i need to send in my application materials to the following address: admissions office • 77 mass ave, 3-108 • cambridge, ma 02139 • tel 617.253.3400 I am an international applicant and i am talking about evaluations and school report Thank you Posted by: navin on November 30, 2009 Way too funny :D :D :D Posted by: Beverly on November 30, 2009 amazing photos!!! wonder what I'll dress up as next year? lol Posted by: Nate '14? on November 30, 2009 Yes you do Navin.

Posted by: anony-moose on December 2, 2009 Dear Jess, While I was sleeping blissfully after devouring an entire cow for Thanksgiving, you and your sister and mother and my mother were doing productive things at the gym. While I do not regret the aforementioned sleep, I am sad I did not get to see you. This being said, I am sitting in the law library ogling at law students and trying to study for finals. Having exhausted every possible method of procrastination (facebook, fmylife, textsfromlastnight, postsecret, multiple gmail accounts, gchat, AIM, skype, bathroom breaks, people watching...which by the way gets really boring when they're just reading quietly...law students read a lot apparently), I thought that I would make one last ditch effort to visit your blog, which I have neglected for a couple years. Anyway, I just wanted to say that yesterday I was having one of those "whatamIdoingwithmylifeandwhyamIhere" days, and your post was great... and you're great. Glad to hear that I'm not the only one, and hopefully we can reune soon. I'm not sure whether my comment has exceeded the length limit, but now that I've thoroughly wasted about an hour and a half I should probably start learning about engines and stuff. Whatever. Much love from California. (later edit: I tried to post this on your post about lives and stuff from early Oct. but it wouldn't let me...fail) Posted by: The Long Lost Sanandler on December 3, 2009 interesting Posted by: t on December 5, 2009 Cool pics! Equally cool outfits! Posted by: D on December 8, 2009 Comments have been closed.
