Today is the first day of the last semester of my undergraduate college life. I started out my day at 11:45 Am... yeah, I'm going to miss these days. My first class on Monday/Wednesday starts at 12:30 and 10:00 for…
I really want to update this, but it's during finals now.... wow
I'm now on fall break, and I will update you as to how my semester is going later on today- :)
As you can probably tell, my log entries are a function of my free time. The more free time I have, the more I can update this blog.
Let me tell you about my week with the climax at an amazing club last night. First off, I went back to Nova last Saturday to drop of MattyK and party it up at school. We decided to go out to a bar called Brownies. This place is really big and has a nice dance deck outside. We’re chillin outside and enjoying the free eats, the beer was flowing and everyone was having a great time. I was wearing a blue button down Hugo shirt that is one of my favorites. There were a bunch of Beta guys who were there and we were all dancing up a storm. You know me, I’m not shy, and give me a few drinks and I’ll go talk to anyone. So there is this group of gals dancing next to our group of beta bro’s. I have the bright idea that perhaps it would be fun to mix the two groups and let everyone dance together- I mean come on, we’re not in Middle school anymore.
So, it occured to me today that I’ve never exactly explained to everyone what it is I do for the World Bank. I’ll try to outline it here and you might just start to understand why I find my summer internship so rewarding.
Let me start off by saying that the overall goal of “The Bank” is to end World Poverty. Now, before you go off laughing at how that is a unattainable goal coming directly from Utopian Philosophy, please understand that I do see your point of view. Also try to understand that someone must try and that it would hard to belive how far off the chart the World’s poverty might be if it wern’t for this organization. Somone must do it, these are the people that do.
This is a very fun time for me becaue Mr. Matthew K. has come to visit DC and work on BL2! Yesterday we met up with Matt’s girlfriend Erin and her younger sister Kaite for lunch. After that we took a tour of my work place and I showed them the amazing view from my bosses office. Erin and Katie had to go home and Matt went out to walk the city and see the sights. He had never visited DC before, so it was good for him to go and walk around. After he came back, and I had finished a few projects, we went to this small bar and had some after work drinks. A few brews in the gut and we’re ready for some intense BL2 editing action. I love my job because everyone is so relaxed. It’s really cool.
It looks as though I have neglected my blog. I apolgize and hope that everyone will forgive my absence.
I am still working on BL2 and it’s coming along. MattyK said that he might come and visit me, which would just be amazing because it would be like old times again, but without Betz. Sometimes, looking back on it, and as much as I had a love hate relationship with the computer I was fortunate enough to use to make BL1, I would almost like to be able to go back and use it again knowing the information I know now. The Bank has provided me with a new perspective on how things should be done with video editing and I’ve come to realize that the setup that I used before was actually quite amazing.
One of my High School friends was in DC to visit his Girlfriend, so we went out to eat on Friday and to a club last night. I’m really excited to see him and find out how he is doing. He goes to Notre Dame and we played tennis together back in the day. It’s always good to see old friends- keep the old, make the new!
I have not really had much time to update my blog the past few days. I'm stuck here at work again, doing tedious Video editing work that is extreamly boring. Someone has to do it, and saying how I'm the…
Does Greg know how to throw a party or what? First off, let me say that I wasn’t sure if I should go to Gibby’s party or not. It was well out of my way in NJ and I wasnt sure if it would be worth it for the drive, especially since I had to drive back to DC for work on Monday. I decieded to go becasue of all the hype that has gone into it. I figured if it wasn’t for the 4 email invites I might not have taken it as seriously. :) In any case, I went and had a blast. There were tons of people and the it was amazing to see all the brothers.
Happy 4th (a day late)! Yesterday my apartment packed up and went to the Jersey shore. We spent all day on the beach, swimming in the ocean and having fun. For dinner we went to this place that had a…
