Today was dominated by the Meet The Bloggers Party – it was SO great to meet all of you!
But before we get to that, the rest of the day…
Got to MIT early, worked the help desk for a couple of hours. Headed over to the EC workshop (that’s Educational Counselor, not East Campus) where I got to meet a bunch of cool MIT alums (some of whom actually read these blogs!). Back to the help desk for most of the afternoon.
At 5PM, I headed over to the closing ceremony which concluded with performances from 6 a cappella groups. In true MIT spirit it got hacked (see pic below). All of the groups were fantastic!
Next, Matt, Mitra, Kevin and I raided LaVerde’s to buy supplies for the MTB party (see pic below). $60 of ice cream and root beer.
And most of you know what happened next – the bloggers blabbed away for awhile and everyone got to meet each other. Super fun. Almost all of the below pics were taken at the MTB party.
And finally, Matt and I stopped by the Battle Of The Bands before leaving for the night. On my way to the T, something *large* blew up near EC (that’s East Campus, not Educational Counselor). Big orange glow, lots of smoke, smelled kindof bad. The perfect end to the perfect day.
Today’s pics are below…
