the H-bomb and me
I wasn't a very diligent student after my freshman year in high school, OK, terrible, but I went to the college I wanted to go to and had a nice scholarship. I additionally spent one summer at Harvard's graduate school of architecture (you didn't know I studied architecture too, did you?) which was of course, a blast. Everybody should have a chance to pretend they belong there, it is quite a place.
My friend Aara went to Harvard and she has mentioned 'The H-bomb'. You're at a party, somebody happens to ask where you went to college, you say in a confident voice "Harvard" and the room gets quiet and everybody looks at you, measuring you up, thinking of you in a different way.
Well, my niece, and I only have one, just got into Harvard. She says she is thinking about it. I think what you say is "YES! Where do I sign?".
