Three months? That's one-quarter of a year!

There are a lot of great things about being home. I get to see my family and friends (my brother is graduating from high school in a couple weeks!). Transportation is far more convenient. Frozen custard is once again a staple in my diet. But I'm also Olin-sick. It's hard not to be.

Robots, kidnappings, and proving me wrong

I've been meaning to post for quite some time now...that what finals do to you, I suppose! I finish up tomorrow, with a Wellesley exam (they're a week behind Olin). The sun is hiding now, but we all managed to have some fun while it was here.

Just to catch you up, here are some of the latest items of awesome:

  • Sleeping outside under the stars. Enough said.
  • Expo just wrapped up. There was an abundance of cool independent projects this semester, from a three-dimensional version of Pong made in LabVIEW to an in-dorm bakery. It's always fun to see what my classmates have been up to.
  • Some Oliners have decided to consume nothing but ice cream (and vitamin supplements) for 100 hours straight. We'll see how this one progresses.

Things I saw today that I enjoyed

1) Pounds and pounds of nachos, piƱatas, and Samba de Amigo at a Cinco de Mayo study break.
2) A parking lot that was blocked off "Due to Robot Testing."
3) Beautiful sunshine!
