I can't actually remember meeting Eitan, I just remember him being part of the whole group of people I used to hang out with. Eitan was hilarious. He really stuck up for Lauren and I when we started to have a hard time in the group and continued to hang out with us eve...

This week I was forced to learn to say two very hard words:  Eitan was.

I had to learn to say them because my intern and young friend Eitan Stern-Robbins died in his sleep on Valentine’s Day.  He was in his dorm room at the University of Miami, where he was a freshman....

Eitan and I were pledge brothers for AEPi. It was during our trip to the Southern Conclave where I began to crack Eitan’s shell. Before Conclave Eitan was a very shy pledge brother who kept to himself, Ross, and Abe. But once our Master, Master Austin Sandler, “forced”...

Eitan had a great last day on Earth, Wednesday, February 13, 2013. In the morning, he had an appointment with his adviser, Karen Donno, who we had met the previous April when we visited the school. I had been after him to check with the university regarding possible su...

Reading Clay's post about Eitan's patented "knee first" basketball strategy reminded me of another time we were playing basketball together.

A few of us were outside Nelson's house (I think it was Eitan, Nelson, Max, Ian and myself) one Spring day just shooting some hoo...

Just another good memory.

One time Ian, Eitan and I went to Cranes beach this past summer with a bunch of people from Rindge; Meilin, Alexandra T., Maxine, Sarah R., Grace C., and Kira G. (sorry if I forgot anyone).  Eitan had tried to put sunscreen on his own back but...

So Eitan and I had the fortune to land first period together both semesters of senior year. He is probably the reason I did so horribly in my calculus class last semester (freshman year); I copied just about everything we did in class off of him. Classwork, tests, ever...

April 3, 2013

In all honesty, it is difficult to pinpoint and simply recall just one event from the time I had with Eitan because there were so many. Eitan and I spent countless days and hours together through much of high school, but senior year was when our friendship really bloom...
