We are nearing the end of finals week for winter term. Only a few more days until SPRING BREAK!
In terms of finals, I have three presentations, two written reports and a one-hour final. Pretty chill, if you ask me…
I have pretty much finished up…and have already passed the biggest hurdle of finals week this Monday, when I had two presentations back to back (the first at 1:30pm and the next at 2:20pm). All I have now is the progress report on my thesis left….am thinking I might head to Starbucks tomorrow morning to finish it up in one sitting.
Here are a few pictures of my E102 group working through the night preparing our presentation we gave today…and a few of us presenting. We presented our work we have done this term coming up with a business model and proposal for our entrepreneurship class.
Sorry for such a short post…but I’ll be back later this week :)
At Caltech it is a graduation requirement to take a “menu” class, courses which introduce you to areas of study outside of your major. This year, there were three courses offered in the third term: ESE 1, Ay 1, and Ge 1. I took Ge 1: Earth and Environment for two reasons. First, ever since the first term I have been interested in the idea of minoring in geology (I might major in it instead!) and the class piqued my interest. Second, the class has an awesome multi-day field trip. While I’m not usually a fan of the outdoors, preferring to stay inside and read books or watch anime, this trip was the highlight of my term. As we went up the 395 along the Eastern Sierra’s, the geological makeup of California was revealed before my eyes. So come on a journey across California with me through my Ge 1 field trip photo gallery.
I’m starting a new miniseries on the blog – Film Club! Each episode, I’ll share a short clip from a popular piece of media, and then completely dissect and overanalyze it, because let’s face it, I’m doing it in my head already anyway. You say “buzzkill.” I say “science.” We’ll kick things off with a clip from Gravity Falls I discussed a bit in my previous post: Season 2 Episode 12, A Tale of Two Stans. If somehow you haven’t watched this show yet (?!)… spoilers incoming!
It’s crazy to think that I began applying to college almost three years ago. I still remember spending hours looking at college websites, admissions blogs and reddit pages to try to get a sense of what college is ACTUALLY like. To help you get through these stressful times, here are a few tips that I wish I had listened to. Hopefully, these will ease your worries and maybe even make the process more enjoyable!?
