I couldn't resist sending you all a quick note because... this is my first post from Gund Hall!
I've been fighting insect infestations at my apartment and had to step out to regain some sanity, so I figured I might as well check out the new digs. As I ascended the trays, I realized that each one seems to have it's own micro-climate--at the bottom, it's cool and heavily air-conditioned, and it gets warmer as you go up. The fourth tray felt about right and I found an empty desk (not difficult right now, as it's pretty deserted).
It's pretty exciting to be in Gund, though it might also be that I'm just happy to not have flies strafing me every ten seconds.
On the walk over here, I recognized a classmate as he whizzed by (too quickly for me to say hello) on his bicycle. That's the second time I've recognized someone on the streets in this city (the first was a bank teller), and it felt good.
Thank you for reading, and for your comments (I'll respond to them in my next post)!
