Summer Recap: Chipotle

Chipotle in Chicago

My roommate James was absolutely infatuated with Chipotle this summer, so I had it fairly regularly over the summer.  I’ve been on a long journey with Chipotle.  I initially hated it because the one in Irvine had undercooked rice and low quality food the first couple of times I went.  Since then, I’ve grown to love Chipotle burritos.  They’re large and the guacamole is delicious.  While the burritos at Anna’s are smaller, Anna’s also has the most amazing horchata I’ve ever drank.  In the Boston area, I ate burritos from the Chipotles in Davis Square, Harvard Square, Cleveland Circle, and Braintree and the Anna’s in Porter Square and MIT.  One of the highlights of my summer was taking a four hour lunch break with James to go get free Chipotle burritos.  The video below documents this epic trek…

Summer Recap: Baseball


One of the most enjoyable parts of my summer was going to a number of baseball games.  I saw two games at Fenway Park, a game at Wrigley Field, and a game at Angel Stadium.  I also enjoyed Baseball as America, a traveling exhibit from the Hall of Fame hosted by the Museum of Science.  One of the most striking things I noticed was how much smaller and livelier Fenway and Wrigley felt.  I think this was mostly because they weren’t surrounded by a massive parking lot.

This evening, I arrived at Bryn Mawr College for the Tri-College Summer Institute: Seminars in Race, Class, and Gender.  This is a pre-orientation program for students entering Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Swarthmore Colleges.  This is my second year working as a Student Resource Person (SRP) for the program, and I consider my arrival here on campus to be the official end of my summer.  It was a great summer, with time spent in New York, Boston, Chicago, Ohio, Irvine, and the Sierras.  Over the next few days, I’ll be posting entries reviewing the highlights of my summer…
