Are We Dating? by Mitra L. '07

Till blogging do us part

Soooo someone asked on Sam‘s blog: Are you and Mitra dating?

I wish!

You ask a fair question, though. After all, Sam does lean uncomfortably close to me in pictures.

Plus we do a lot of fun things together

Sam is an excellent running partner

CPW 5K:

Boston Marathon:

Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Race for the Cure:

We also try to visit New York City at least once a year
(Witness Sam’s sleeping-on-the-bus face)

We’ve gone as far as San Francisco, CA

and have even explored the redwood forests of Santa Cruz, CA

Back at MIT, we have taken PE yoga together:

and done lots of weird things in our suite, usually after spending more time working than sleeping:

But to answer your question, there is no way Sam and I could be dating — After all, Sam is way more fierce than I am:

Okay…. I SERIOUSLY need to work!

    Haha, I love you enough to write a blog entry about you too! Theoretically.

    I look really fat in the Santa Cruz picture… it must be the wonders of the Mystery Spot distorting my appearance.

    Keep it fierce.

    But I thought we were!

  4. Brandy says:

    Those are GREAT photos. You can just tell by the photos that you two have great chemistry together. That is nice. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Have you two ever gone apple picking together? I have heard that frolicking in orchards is really fun. Plus, it would make for even more cute pics.

    Is this post supposed to be sarcastic and am I just too dense to catch it, or are you guys for real not dating?

  7. meara says:

    ummm, so for those of us who know and love mitra, the apple picking comment is especially amusing. Remember, mitra, whoever you should chose to marry, you promised i could be a bridesmaid and there is no getting out of it. smile

    Mitra! I didn’t know you were blogging for MIT! Way to go on all of the running!

    I miss seeing you around campus! What are your plans for next year? I should probably write this in facebook, but i’m too lazy to change the webpage.
