Ringing in the new

It’s been a fairly quiet month. School session is over, so no more awesome classes at MIT and Harvard *sad face*. Before the break, I got published in MIT’s Precis magazine, which was exciting. Of course, journalists rarely take breaks, so The Globe is still as busy as ever. In fact, I spent Boxing Day at the office and thoroughly enjoyed it, thanks to the huge helpings of delicious food that was generously provided by the company.

As my time in Boston comes to an end, I feel an urgency to learn more of the city and see more of its landmarks. I have walked in the towering Prudential Center, taken a hike in The Boston Common, combes through the Isabella Gardner Museum and visited the glorious Boston Public Library this month. But none compare, in my humble opinion, to the feeling of being in the New England Aquarium with its beautiful and plentiful sea animals.

I still hope to visit the Skywalk Observatory, board a cruise ship to a

nearby island and visit the Fenway Park.

At the Globe, I am spending the last few days observing the audio-visual teams. I am also sitting in on meetings with presidential candidates, which is super awesome. Today, I sat at a table with Andrew Yang. I personally found Yang interesting and humorous. He plans to introduce a universal basic income plan if elected and to enforce gun laws.

Sadly, I said goodbye to some of the other interns at The Globe. My time at the publication was filled with us whining about paragraphs and deadlines and simply enjoying each other’s company.

The next time you hear from me, I will be in New York. I look forward to all the excitement! Happy new year!
