As typical, the first week is going to be one of adjustment with some patience thrown in. This became very apparant as the airport to apartment cab driver became mysteriously lost and disoriented as we circled around and around the area of my apartment complex. He kept asking if I had a phone to call for clarification to which I had to reply no as I had just arrived. Literally, after 40 minutes of circling, he pulled out a phone and called the place. Um, "why did you not do this like forever ago"? No big because we should have clarification on location. Ten more minutes of circling and I take control and start pointing as to where to go because it appeared as if I could read the provided map much better than him. Hotel on the left - success. Get me out of this thing.
Ah well, only cost like three more dollars and a little extra time. To bed I went with a summer of good stuff ahead!!!
So, first week at MSRA? Wicked!! This place is all about an environment that breeds creativity and solid intellectual work. I mean, I am practically living here because everything that I really need can be found on this campus. This includes tons of people that have a passion for what they do. I so love all these deep conversations I get to have with people that know what the heck I am talking about. I love it!!!
