Something that I learned just in the past week is that hard work really does pay off! My week was packed with one good piece of news after another — I got very positive news regarding a bunch of summer internships I’m interested in, I connected with many wonderful Union alumni and had some awesome conversations (Union alumni are the BEST — for real!), I got into a class that had previously been full for next term, and I found out that my theme house will be reinstated next year (after some serious adversity)!! The best part about all of the positive news was that none of it was the result of mere “good luck” — I worked my little booty off for every single thing! Fall 2012 has been my most rewarding term yet at Union!
About The Author
My name is Catherine Elizabeth Ziac (Cat, for short) and I am a senior at Union College in Schenectady, NY. When I'm not studying for my major in economics or my minor in Russian, you can find me skimming through catalogs, playing the flute, fishing, online window shopping, chatting with my sisters (my twin, Julia, studying physics at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, CA, or my little sister Maddy, currently a senior in high school), or out and about in good old Schenectady with my wonderful Union friends! I love pink nails, long showers, office supplies, and going to the public library. I spend too much time looking at blogs and skimming the WSJ online, but I still believe in the merits of a hand-written letter. I am always in the mood for yogurt and granola and am never without a piece of gum. I usually answer "blue" when asked my favorite color, but I know in my heart that it's always been and always will be garnet!
