- – me WOO!!!! NO SPEECH!!!!!
Cynthia kept Elli up part of the night practicing her speech
We discuss living arrangements at MIT. Maseeh Hall – $3288 per term
I’ll pay for the room cost – quad suite
Time to get ready for graduation. Aunt Katherine sent a prep kit.
Elitism – mutual respect; one should not think they are better than others; complete BS, but it sounds wonderful. Too bad she doesn’t practice what she’s preeching.
Kitty’s speech is more mundane yet sincere. Respect for ideas and people. Not let recent events dictate respect for alien cultures that may exist. Danger of us as humans to revert to us vs them.
And then we graduate!!!!
The press is there snapping pictures of me and Cynthia. And ESPN and NBC to follow Kimyee and Elli around for backstory stuff. And then Cynthia drags me in front of the cameras to ask me about her speech and gush about how I taught her all she knew about elitism. Will Cynthia run for president? “I wouldn’t put anything past her. “ They ask me if I will run for president one day.
Change into flats and off to the party.
Cynthia and I get into a discussion about her judgemental comments of Elli’s retro clothes. Kitty gets down and rude, but I really can’t blame her. It’s like slamming my head in a door so I finally tell everyone to be nice and move on. Icarus brings the marshmallows and Peter comes out with Belgian chocolate and graham crackers. We teach Cynthia how to cook over a fire.
The next day…
We get ready and are picked up by a limo for the party.
It goes extremely well. Dad’s house is huge and has a 20 person Jacuzzi and an Olympic swimming pool. We have a DJ. We have a blast and wind up partying until the sun comes up. After a couple hours crashing , we return to the doorms. Over the next month and a half, Elli and Kimyee practice while Cyrillo and I explore the area around MIT and look for a lab. Warehouse space and permits. Right outside airport.
17,000 sq ft building near airport. $250k. Sold American.
Tour of Harvard. Get some advice on the local area by a history major.
Go with the local pizzarias, not chains.
After a conversation with my mother about tipping the Realtor, I think about a plan to give him 20% of the cost without injuring his pride. I must be “creative”. Fortuately, I’m my father’s daughter.
I invite Mr. Miller and his wife to dinner. He recommends a nearby Italian restaurant and I arrange for a limo to pick them up. We go back to the school.
Mr. Greg Miller
Mrs. Isabella Miller
Design mods for warehouse.
