Happy Birthday Grant!
I hadn't heard from Grant for a while (my fault as much as his) but I e'mailed him today for his birthday and found out that he has a blog also (Grant's Rants) so I spent some time reading it. Very Grant-like, just like old times. (I don't recommend reading it unless you know him and know what you're getting into, though. You have been warned.) Sometimes I think he's about as different from me as it's possible to be. Sophomore year, when we roomed together, we made long lists of opposite qualities, under our names on the door. Optimist/Pessimist, Happy/Sad, Love/Hate, Morning Person/Night Person, Mac/PC and plenty of others. On the other hand, I think we're really similar in a lot of ways, too. Otherwise we wouldn't have become friends. It's as if we each just put opposite faces on our personalities, but somewhere underneath there's a core of similarity. Anyway, living with him in one room sort of drove me crazy (no offense, Grant), but I miss having him around now that he's back on the East Coast again and going to Duke.
