Getting an invitation to the Foreign Service Oral Exam has been not just fantastic, but also an excellent means of procrastinating on Rice homework by browsing study guides, the yahoo groups, and FSO blogs ahead of my interview in January.. !!!

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately… I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life! To put to rout all that was not life… and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”

There’s something about the first mildly chilly day at Rice that romanticizes the idea of fall, sweaters, mugs of hot tea, soup, and reading for class. All of which sounds like an ideal Sunday right now!
