I've been back in Philly for a little more than a week. It's nice to be around my stuff again. I missed my stuff. My mom has been staying with me, as I'm still on crutches. So between working and some school extracurriculars that I've been working on in the summer, we've been redecorating my apartment. I have to say, it looks like a grownup lives here now.

I actually could host a dinner party or something. My internships are winding down. My work with the startup will probably end in the next couple of weeks. I really loved the freedom of being able to contribute to something from nothing. My strategic analysis position will probably run through the end of the month. I'm truly enjoying the work. I'm doing types of analysis that I've never done before and creating financial models from scratch, which I've also never done before. It's been challenging to figure this stuff out. I even had to lug out my finance and accounting books to help along the way. I just hope the work I've produced is up to par, and that I haven't tarnished the Wharton name this summer.

Although I've enjoyed my work this summer, I'm ready to get back to school. One of the extracurricular activities that I worked on this summer included bringing some of the rising 2nd years back to Philly at the end of July. I was so happy to see everyone. I missed them! I know people think this is cliched to say, but I really enjoy being around Whartonites! And as fun as work is (I mean, how can you beat a fight over where the interns sit?!!), I think school is better. Although I am poorer. I guess you can't have everything.

My mom and I went to see a few movies last week. We saw The Island, which was entertaining - although there was a 70 story fall that the main characters survived with few scratches that almost ruined it for me (stuff like this that defies the laws of physics in SUCH a major way distract me...) And we also saw Must Love Dogs. Now I'm all for a good chick flick, but this movie SUCKED. I wouldn't even recommend watching this on cable. Horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE. The dialog was awful. And the story was boring. So two thumbs down from me.

I was downloading some old 80s songs (because I love 80s music - especially when drunk), and ran across this 80s Music Quiz. Looks like I know how to rock the acid wash jeans...
