When the time for my Orientation session finally came, back in June 2008, the Celtics were in the NBA finals, and there was construction going on down Comm Ave. Today…not much has changed, at least as far as the city of Boston’s perpetual state of construction goes, and as for the C’s, well, it’s looking more and more like history will repeat itself. (BEAT LA!)
In fact, the thing that’s changed the most in those two years is yours truly. When I arrived here, I was outwardly confident, but inside, I was a nervous wreck, worried about fitting in and finding my way on campus. There’s an old saying: give a Terrier a bone, and they’ll have a bone for a day…teach a Terrier how to fetch bones and bury them, and they’ll have bones for a lifetime!
