I had a wild night on the town last night due to the arrival of Buddah and our subsequent semi-crashing of a rehearsal dinner, followed by many beers and shots of whiskey. (Since when do I do shots of whiskey? Since yesterday, it seems. ugh.) I had to get up early to attend the graduation of a student I mentor through City Lab Academy, a job training program for high school graduates interested in biotechnology. It was a really sweet ceremony- a lot of the families came and everyone was so proud of the graduates, many of whom have GEDs and struggled with the coursework. I displayed my joy by huddling in the corner sipping on a Gatorade.
The madness will continue through the weekend, as we head to a cookout today and a wedding tomorrow.
