I know you are all wondering why I haven’t written an article in a few weeks. Well, it’s because I’ve been busy swallowing my pride and begging every recruiter I can contact for a summer internship. It hasn’t worked. You will most likely see me stocking shelves at Wal-Mart this summer. It’s the only way an engineer can get brand management experience.
Sooooo…. What’s been going on up in Club B????
B Diverse Does it Karaoke Style
What could be a better bonding experience than 42 intoxicated Clubbers singing at the top of their lungs and grabbing microphones out of each others hands??? We did all the typical songs, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” “Summer Lovin,” and “I Will Survive,” and a few unusual ones as well…Everyone was a star in their own mind that night, but here are some of the highlights:
o Who knew how many B’s knew ALL the lyrics to Paradise City? Thanks to Zibby Schwarzman for her excellent song selection!
o Just minutes before being forced to leave at the end of the night, we all joined in a heart-warming a capella version of “American Pie.”
o John “Sinatra Eat Your Heart Out” Shepherd made love to the microphone.
o All the guys were “down” with Crystal Stanley’s and Erin Rice’s spectacular performance of Brandy’s “I Wanna Be Down.”
Special thanks to Wakana “I’m Too Sexy” Tanaka for putting this whole thing together!!!
B2 is for Bacchus Ball
Despite the good food and better wine, I didn’t personally go to Bacchus Ball, so I am relying purely on section gossip here. Here’s what made it to my end of the grapevine:
o Anna Mallet was super sexy in her “Moulin Rouge”-esque corset. Very eighteenth century France…
o Vivake Bhalla had on a “masculine” pink shirt and danced with as many girls as he had drinks that night.
o Susan Dunn broke her toe on a speaker.
o Supposedly, Craig Chapman had on a kilt, but no underwear. More importantly, I heard that he PROVED it.
o A few Clubbers broke away from the crowd and went exploring into the ladies locker room downstairs in the fitness center in the dark.
o Someone was going around taking pictures of people “below the waist.”.
o Haruki Umezawa and his wife, Toko, looked awesome!
And the Countdown B-gins
As we approach the last two months of our first year, let’s keep a few things in mind: 1. We are Club B. The best section in all of HBS ever. 2. As such, we have a reputation to uphold and a standard (i.e. our Credo-you saw it during Skydecks) to live by. 3. That means, head out to B events as often as you can, laugh with your sectionmates who are now your friends, and, most importantly, HAVE FUN! We don’t call it CLUB B for nothing…
