missing me some twin

Julia, my beautiful twin!

Julia, my beautiful twin!

Well, we’re back at the U! But as many of you faithful followers might already know, I visited my twin sister over our Spring Break. While I absolutely adore Union and am always happy to return to campus, coming back has been particularly difficult for me these past few days. In short: I miss my twin! Sometimes I get so swept up with homework and work work that I forget how much I miss her. We do a fine job of keeping in touch — texting, skyping, emailing, tweeting — but being 3000 miles apart and having a 3 hour time difference between us is really tough and nothing can compare to being in person and rocking our constant “twin monologue” as we like to call it. I know she’s at the right place for her and I know that I’ve grown so much as an individual being on my own, but being apart after 18 years of always being together was not easy my freshman year of college and it’s still not easy — even after three years of practice! I am fortunate to have an amazing support system and even more amazing friends, but how is a Cat supposed to survive when her other half is a country away?

she's loves science
she’s loves science and isn’t afraid to share it
she always expected the inside of cacti to be hollow

she's the biggest goof-ball i know

she’s my better half!

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!

    Did you visit the Huntington Gardens in Pasadena? That looks like the succulent section. It was like walking on another planet.
