After a fun, food-filled day, I was ready for the bridal shower, which promised more fun and food! My first cousin, my aunt’s son, is getting married, and I am a bridesmaid. Although I was a flower girl years ago, I’ve never been a bridesmaid before, so I’m super psyched. The wedding is on December 9th, just a day after term ends, which at most schools would be a problem. However, since most of Caltech’s finals are take-home, I can take them basically any time I want before they’re due. I know if I manage my time correctly, I’ll be able to get them all done early, making it easier for me to be ready for the wedding.
