A Love Letter To My Dorm Microwave

Dear Dorm Room Microwave,

Thank you for the late-night snacks, for the instant meals, and for being there for me. I remember during move in, my roommate and I couldn’t decide where to put you. After looking at the finished room, we decided that right next to the door would be your home. With a fridge and freezer under you and a snack basket on top, I feel like you are part of my everyday life.

Thank you for the popcorn, microwave. I have popped more popcorn then I could have ever imaged. From movie theater butter to hundred calorie bags, you have seen all the popcorn in the world.

Thank you for heating up day-old Chipotle and all the easy mac. Oh, there was so much easy mac wasn’t there?

Maybe you have never been cleaned and looking inside of you makes me literally want to throw up, but from August until now, you have supplied more meals than you could have ever imaged.

So, freshman dorm room microwave, thank you for being there for me. I love you.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
