My initial plan was to visit Boston and M.I.T. once I arrived in Massachusetts. But that didn’t happen. Instead, I circumvented downtown since I did not have as much time and headed to New Hampshire. I had booked a movie time in New Hampshire to see “Batman: The Killing Joke” in the theater. There’s no way I was going to miss that. This animated feature was only in the theater for 1 or 2 days. Limited showings.

Look how I sneakily circumvented downtown.

I’ll leave you with another quote from one of my favorite actor/directors who was born in Massachusetts.

Life, like poker has an element of risk. It shouldn’t be avoided. It should be faced.

Yale University is an American private Ivy League research university in New Haven, Connecticut. Founded in 1701 in Saybrook Colony as the Collegiate School, the University is the third-oldest institution of higher education in the United States. The school was renamed Yale College in 1718 in recognition of a gift from Elihu Yale, who was governor of the British East India Company. Established to train Congregationalist ministers in theology and sacred languages, by 1777 the school’s curriculum began to incorporate humanities and sciences. In the 19th century the school incorporated graduate and professional instruction, awarding the first Ph.D. in the United States in 1861 and organizing as a university in 1887.

Whoah. With this kind of history, I could not drive through Connecticut without visiting one of the finest institutions of higher learning in the US. Yale University. Wow. Although it was summer session and the campus was mostly empty, it was a beautiful place to visit. The buildings definitely had an old-school feel to them and are not very contemporary, which makes the place that much better in my opinion.

I had some fun on the campus, shot a video for my Instagram account, took some pics, ate some thai food and bought a souvenir t-shirt. Good times.
