This past weekend the Cardinal wrestling team headed to Las Vegas for the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Collegiate Wrestling Invitational. The tournament brought together some of the best teams in the country, and the Cardinal wrestlers couldn’t quite hang with the best, finishing in 25th place out of the 34 teams.
Last weekend, I went to Vegas for the second time in my life. The first time, I was in 4th grade and with my parents; this time I was in the company of several other 21 and 22-year-olds. While I arguably should have come away from the trip with a massive hangover, a new tattoo and an impromptu marriage, I instead came away with a bad cold and a myriad of thoughts about what it means to tell someone that you go to Stanford.
This Winter Break I went to India and finished “Infinite Jest.” India was an experience: I still haven’t quite processed it, but I’m getting closer. On my last night in Kolkata, I bought a couple illegible children’s books, one comic book, and one “Lonely Planet Magazine, India.”
