So, yesterday I went to Jax Bicycle Center in downtown Claremont and I bought a new bike. Yep, I'm completely crazy. But it's such an awesome bike. Thin, barely treaded tires like a road bike, upright seating position, and nice hardware. It cost a mint, but hopefully I'll put it to good use. With PLs on Pomona next semester, I'll need it to get to class. So, yeah, that's what I've been up to...
Not much else interesting to report. School is school. Meh. But, hey, at least I got a new bike.
Why pay somebody to tell you about yourself, when you can just ask your friends to do it? That seems to be the premise of this site, which I saw on an old note of Richard Mehlinger's (yes, Facebook is weird like that). So, yeah.
Today marks my first week back in sunny California. Actually, scratch the "sunny" part -- it's rained here almost every day since I arrived. It's still nice to be somewhere where the average daily temperature has more than one digit, though.
Class is exactly as I remembered it. Hours drag by, but days seem to end almost without beginning in the first place. I'm staying on top of my homework, which is a good thing. We'll see how well I can keep that up, particularly when biology and STEMS (signals and systems engineering) start to load it on.
I've also started …read more
So, apparently, people actually have read this blog. I haven't the foggiest idea why somebody would want to do that, but I suppose it means that I actually ought to post here once in a while. I guess I can at least try. I'll start with the last, you know, three months.
It's been at least as crazy a semester as I thought it would be. I ended up pulling a few more academic all-nighters than is strictly good for me, but I think I survived anyway. Some surprises included Discrete being a much more challenging class than I had …read more
Okay, so I'm a slow blogger. At this rate, I assume there isn't actually anybody reading this any more. No? Good.
So, as you might have (hypothetically) gathered from the title of this post, I'm back at HMC for another year. No, scratch that. Another crazy, insane, sleep-depped year. That's more like it. I'm taking, erm, 9 curses this semester. Plus research with Professor (D. Money) Harris. Any some grutoring (grading/tutoring, for the uninitiated) for CS5 on the side. So, yeah, it's busy. Right now I'm supposed to be doing some math homework. But, honestly, who wants to integrate …read more
I guess I've been neglecting this blog for a while. It's all right- nobody reads it anyway, so who's going to notice? But I'm a bit bored today, so I thought perhaps I'd post again, just for old times' sake. As you might be able to guess, I'm back in Fall River again; I'm home for the summer. I made it through my first year at Harvey Mudd College with my lowest grade as a B- (in Chemistry, obviously).
Not too much exciting going on since I got back. I spend a couple of hours every day taking care of …read more
