Today was the day that I met all of my fellow Columbia attendees and our chaperone. We convened at the house of our chaperone, Ms. Thrift, for brunch. It was a lovely gathering; we began with small talk, but soon after we began to talk about our programs, what we wanted to do in the future, what our hobbies included, and what we were looking forward to in New York. I really have to tip my hat to Ms. Thrift for organizing such a nice brunch; on top of the amazing food, there was never a dull moment in conversation. Between her and her husband, we all learned lots about them and even ourselves.
|We all devoured the frittata, fruit, ham, coffee cake, and bread that were at the table.|
One thing that made today exceptional was how well we could all converse. This sounds like such a general thing to say; I mean how hard is it to hold a conversation? The thing about our group was that we could talk about anything. I mean everything. The conversation ranged from driver’s licenses to Dave Franco to how we feel about the Electoral College in this day in age. And I think that finding people who you can talk about anything with is rare. We are all so lucky to be in the same cohort!
