It's been one hell of a summer. From the stress of the coursework, to the drama in the dorms, and everything in between, it was hectic. However, this doesn't mean that I didn't have a great time. In fact, I can say with utmost confidence that this is the best summer that I have ever had in my entire life. I got to spend it with people that I love and care about, and I would not have had it any other way.
During my time at Stanford, I was able to snap quite a few pics with my DSLR. I went out one night and wanted to do long exposure shots, so I headed out alone at around 10 PM to shoot some pictures. While they all turned out nice, it was definitely an experience that I would not want to do again. In the span of about two hours, I had quite a few close calls, so I really don't picture doing that again, or at least by myself again.
A major event that occurred whilst I was at Stanford was the legalization of gay marriage by the SCOTUS. Considering I was in an area that is well known for its progressive ideals, and large support of the homosexual community, I knew that I had to attend the Pride Parade. It was going to go down in history, and I wanted to be a part of it. Pride was a very interesting event, but it was (mostly) filled with love and good vibes. I am so incredibly glad I was able to be a part of it, and witness the greatest display of love ever.
All in all, I had an amazing summer. I ate good food, made friends, enjoyed life, learned a lot about psychology, math, and physics, and also a lot about myself and the world around me. I feel as if I grew up a lot more this summer than ever before, and it is truly invigorating. If you have any questions about my summer, leave me a comment, and I would love to get back to it. I must get going since my flight back to Wisconsin is about to board.
I've had one hell of an adventure this summer, and I would not have wanted it any other way.
See you soon,
