Failure experience
Leaves in their autumn colors are strewn about the path, the lawn—beat and browning—is roped off for the cold weather, and the gray waters of the East River are lapping rhythmically against the pier.

My name is Arianna. I'm a senior at MIT, studying Course 3-C or Material Science with a focus in archaeology. I used to live in Random Hall, one of MIT's undergraduate dorms in Cambridge. I'd be more than happy to give you advice or just wish you luck.
