Weekend Adventures Part One by Cydnie T. '12

the first of several "a day in the life of Cyd" posts


One of my favorite questions to ask, when talking to companies, is what a day as an intern is like. What would I be doing, who would I see, where would i go, etc. I figured that people would want to know what the daily life of an MIT student (i.e. me) is like. So i decided to chronicle my weekend! This will be the first of several “a day in the life of Cyd” posts and I can imagine them being lots of fun (for me at least)

5:00 pm – helped my friend 1 finish a sudoku puzzle
5:15 pm – checked email/facebook/etc and listened to sample songs from the group SouLoved
6:00 pm – watch last week’s episode of Bones with another friend 2 while friend 1 was in a meeting

8:30 pm – ran home to change for the next activity
9:54 pm – went to a Salsa Night at Ryles Jazz Club in Cambridge … had a BLAST!
2:00 am – walked back to MIT. Stopped at 7/11 for a snack. ran into friends from Boston University.
3:10 am – came back to my room with a few friends to hang out
4:52 am – bed time ☺

(P.S. in my book, the new day doesn’t start until I’ve had at least 4 hours of sleep lol)

4:47 pm – headed to the Annual Gospel Choir Thanksgiving Potluck!
5:20 pm – ate and sang and played games until my side hurt from laughing so much :)
8:13 pm – pset time :)

** LUCHA = La Unión Chicana por Aztlán. LUChA is a student group that offers “cultural and academic support to students who identify in any way with Mexican American culture”. Check out more on their website.
