I think I'll go to Boston... I think I'll start a new life...

So Spring Break is at an end and all of us here at Caltech are gearing up for the spring term. I think this is a good opporunity to review how I spent my first spring break at Caltech (or in my case not totally at Caltech).

Hey, You, Over There!

Hey Guys (and Gals)! Welcome to my blog! My name is Brad and I’m a freshman here at the wonderful California Institute of Technology (henceforth referred to as ‘Caltech’) hailing from the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Even though we don’t declare our majors until the end of the third term of our frosh year, I intend to double major in Applied and Computational Mathematics and Business Economics and Management (i.e. ACM & BEM). Soooo what do I want to do in this first introductory blog post?…. Introduce my blog. Bet ya weren’t expecting that! I’m a pretty diverse guy; you can find me doing anything from clubbing to playing DotA [DotA 2 i.e. – Yeah I got a Beta Key ^_^] to reading a book [if I have the time while at Tech] to running around campus in my florescent orange running jacket [I’ve been told that it makes me look like a highlighter but that’s cool too] to well… almost anything really. Likewise, my blog is going to be pretty diverse as well, not only based on what I said before but also because I’m international! So I get to do all those fun strangers in a strange land thing like… umm… psets, what are those? Haha.

Hello hello hello. I know it’s been a while since you’ve seen me post anything… and I apologize for not being there to make your day. Here’s what you can look forward to on this edition of “International Perspective” (or as I secretly call it “The Chad Scribbles Experience”): Ditch day 2012 recap, why in the heck I haven’t posted anything in so long, where I am right now (you may or may not be surprised), and other musings. Here goes!

Infinity minus infinity is.... zero?

Hey Guys! So a couple days ago, a friend of ours, my roommate and I were sitting in our room and somehow the concept of inifity came up. Being students of science, we had to explore an idea. My roommate doesn’t really believe in the concept of different sizes of inifinity, at least from an application in the real world stand point, which makes sense since he thinks about things more practically than theoretically.
