The CIA and the Six Best Things About Boarding School Break.
And so it has happened. My final fall exam week at Gould. We all survived it, like we always do. And though students are already dispersed about the Globe for vacation, I have some amusing images from exam week that I wanted to share.
You already heard about our AP Gov project in Abby’s post (remember?…Prince Harry playing polo?). My group’s country was Russia, so as CIA agents, we spent several years in Russia collecting intelligence to compare it to the United States. Upon returning, we held a briefing in which all of the agents presented the intelligence they had gathered on their respective countries. I have chosen to include some photos of the briefing, although technically they should remain strictly confidential.
Needless to say, the world is safe with these agents doing their jobs.
Now on to Part II of this Glog post: Vacation!!! Here are some things Vacation is good for:
1. Sleeping in. It is perfectly acceptable to stay in your pajamas until 2 PM. However, if you plan to go exercise, remember to do so before it gets dark.
2. Reading books that were not assigned for school. They DO exist, I promise!
3. Being creative–there are many different kinds of creativity, but if you are feeling particularly loquacious, I highly suggest sharing your literary creations on the other Gould blog, GA Out Loud. You can e-mail Rose Gill or Abbie Goldberg with your selections–they would LOVE some new voices on the blog.
4. Talking to your family–yes, it is important to do so every once in a while. Even those of us who are day students find that we hardly see our families during the school year because we are so busy. Luckily for me, my family reads my Glog so I don’t have to talk to them very often (don’t worry, that was a joke. A VERY bad joke).
5. Catching up–on TV shows, reading, friends, current events (read up on Occupy Wall St., it’s important!), school work (yes, I know the trimester is over, but there’s always time to get ahead on those Bio chapters!)
6. Relaxing, above all. I’m sure I don’t have to tell anyone to do that! Happy Vacation, happy Thanksgiving, happy (hopefully) snow!
See you next week!
PS: I am leaving this Friday with the Nordic team for a training camp in Québec. In anticipation of being without internet on Monday, don’t worry if you don’t hear from me. With any luck, I will be skiing on some real Canadian snow.
