School’s Out – Almost

Cold Chilling - On December 15, I did my Sounding. Which was the last one of the semester.

Harvard is a bit different than every other school in the country in terms of how semesters work. Generally, the Christmas vacation serves as the end of the semester. Here, the Christmas vacation is just a break. When we come back in early January, classes are over, but we still have a reading period, papers to turn in exams to take. The next semester starts in February. Anyway, this week marks somewhat of a halfway point for the year for us Nieman Fellows since it was the last week of classes.  Most of us spent the last week attending parties, planning vacations and saying our goodbyes to classmates and professors. Since Nieman Fellows don’t take exams, this week is the last time we would see a lot of our classmates. I met a lot of good students. Ned the rap fanatic from Boston. Alneada from Alabama, who ran for Student Council veep. Aaron, the football player. Wesley, who dresses way better than I do. Tina from Black Nationalism. Alyssa who gave me her AfAm10 notes, etc…. The year has been great so far and we are already looking forward to coming back in January. But it is also kind of sad. We are almost done.
