Woah, a book that looks incredibly interested with a note from the author mentioning a specific part of my resume... HLS goes hard.

I got In Brown's Wake, signed by the author with a note congratulating me on the inside. Swanky.


That IS swanky! I suppose they matched us up with different books from authors on campus based on our interests?

...I got Laws, Outlaws, and Terrorists. What are they trying to say?

I guess they're trying to showcase their new NA law superstar, Prof. Day-Lewis.

I'm thinking about doing a studio near campus. I'll only want a roommate if I get a two bedroom apartment. I'm also looking into Harvard University housing. What about you?

Received a copy of Republic, Lost: by Professor Lawrence Lessig (I am a huge fan now if I can just get in his class) with a very nice note from the author. Very classy.
