it just dawned on me the reason i was placed here in cambridge
and have had the social (or serious lack there of) experience that i have: the purpose was preparation for this very moment where work has become balls to the wall as i make this final push to finish my phd
. the fact that i am not missing some great social life (as has been the case since day 1) in being in the office for 10-12 hours daily makes it much easier to put in the necessary hours without a second thought about something more fun. here in cambridge
(at least my experience...can't speak for everyone) 'something more fun' does NOT exist and will NEVER exist. this just isn't the place for that. at least not the fun that i am used to and long for.cambirdge
is simply full of cambirgde
-caliber students. and frankly, there isn't a place on the cambirdge
university application that requires you to be a social being....just smart. no 'urban' social outlets here. just.....well, i'll
leave that part out as i have bashed cambirdge
enough in one post!
p.s. - i think it is interesting how people thought racism in america
overnight just because we have a black president now. them people still hate anything non-white, and all this controversy over the school address is just a manifestation of the deep-seated hatred held in too many people worldwide. like chris
rock said: "i always expect racism."
