On Saturday, a very important event took place. Pi the Pumpkin was born. It started off as a normal day; I woke up, went to the gym, ate breakfast in Dana, and then went over to the Spa to do some work and learn my lines for R.U.R. Around 2, my friend Adrienne texted me and asked if I wanted to go carve a pumpkin behind Bobs. This sounded like the greatest idea ever, so I zipped over to Bobs to find dozens of pumpkins waiting to be carved and painted. I had thought that going off to college meant my pumpkin carving days were over, but boy was I wrong.
So, carefully, daintily, I picked out the perfect pumpkin that would later become, the one, the only, Pi the Pumpkin. Pi didn’t take long to carve because of his naturally small features. He’s small but mighty (at least that’s what his friends say). Lo and behold, after just 20 minutes, Pi the Pumpkin was born.
Pi decided to apply to Colby early decision. Since he was the first pumpkin child to ever apply to Colby, they admitted him on the spot. Pi is psyched to be Colby College’s newest student.
Pi is very studious and loves to read. He is considering majoring in English and minoring in Creative Writing. He wants to be a mentor for Colby Cares About Kids, write for the Colby Echo and join the Colby Outing Club because Pi loves being outside!
Pi was so excited when he moved into his new dorm, Foss! His first night eating in the Foss dining hall, there was a Gyro Bar, and Pi especially loves Greek food, so he was very happy. They also had pumpkin cheesecake for dessert… Pi opted out of trying any since he says he doesn’t support cannibalism.
Here is Pi sitting in the Spa, contemplating life. Pi agrees that the music in the Spa is always spot on.
Pi needed a picture to put on his ColbyCard, so he took this selfie while rolling around in the fall leaves.
