I suppose I should introduce my lovely audience to the three people with whom I will spend this adventurous year. Their names are Mike, Monica and Neil. Mike and Neil both grew up in south Chicago suburbs and went to Marquette, but never met each other before Orientation. Monica grew up in south Texas and attended Texas Pan-American. Mike and I have already established that we are the boisterous, extroverted members of the community who will probably annoy the other two at multiple points throughout the next 12 months. We’ve each apologized for that. Someone at the airport asked if we were siblings. Keep in mind we’ve known each other for less than a week. Neil is fairly quite, but every once in a while, he’ll throw out this hilarious one liner. Monica can also keep us all laughing. There’s going to be a lot of joy in this house.
So know you know the gang. Splendid.
