A building at Harvard. After a full 12 weeks, I finally made the trek out there -- three whole stops away on the Red Line.

Bye, Boston.

It’s been real. Thanks for one of the best summers of my life. I hope to make my way back someday, if only briefly. For now, Austin awaits with open arms, a high of 101 degrees tomorrow, and a 9 a.m. class on Wednesday.

P.S. I spent the evening with my relatives in Brookline, making a stop at the playground we visited on my very first day in the city. Once again, things come full circle.

Yesterday was my last day at the Globe. 😦 The copy desk saw me off the proper way — with a table covered with food. Everyone was so absolutely lovely, which made me super mopey about leaving. I think my favorite part was when Paul (who I like but probably talked to a handful of times) gave me an awkward hug and said “I hope you get a job at the Globe someday.” So do I, Paul.

Also, at the end of the night I went to the area where all the Globe cars and delivery trucks are because Jazmine needed to return her car. Since I’ve never had a reason to take out a car, I hadn’t been down there since my very first day, when Mary took us on a tour of the building during orientation. I like when things come full-circle.

And our last Saturday night in Boston:

Laura moved out this morning. Where did the summer go?

Marty, editor in chief of the paper: I used to ride my bike there when I lived in New York.
Sean: Why were you living in New York when you could have been living in Jersey?!

“Ma’am, trying to have a conversation with you would be like trying to argue with a dining room table. I have no interest in doing it.”

Spent the day in Brookline with my relatives. My 4-year-old cousins are like a comedy team. Almost funnier, though, is listening to them when they’re having serious conversations. Their dad told them they need to eat broccoli, to which Alex responded, “I don’t like broccoli.” Sara looked at him and said, with an extremely serious look on her face, “You should try it when you’re 5.”

I told Sara to take a photo with her bike, and she hammed it up.

A copy desk debate: Burma vs. Myanmar

D: I decided last week that it’s Myanmar.
L: Really? I’ve been using Burma.
A: It should be Myanmar. The problem is, the Stylebook isn’t updated, and we have two sources of information.
D: The point is, we should call them what they want to be called, not what we, arrogant Westerners, think they should be called.
(few seconds of silence)
L: Well, Burma fits much better in a headline.

Scenes from my kitchen:

Me: Whoa, that’s a lot of Cocoa Pebbles.
Laura: I know. I really wanted them, but the other two were too stale to eat.
