A good thing about being a senior graduating is that all of your family and friends think it’s a huge deal. I suppose it is…but it’s nice to have other people get excited on your behalf. My friend Sam from Westpoint Military Academy flew out here and we went to Disneyland with my parents, sister, Lea (another Caltech grad) and aunt, which was a lot of fun! Obviously only one of us has Disney spirit…
Then, I adopted a new puppy!! I can stay home with her all summer and train her and everything, so it’s the perfect time! Hopefully I can teach her to wave and bark and everything, it took her a couple of days to learn “sit” but I think she’s got it down. Her name is Mochi and she is 10 months old! Here she is:
I can still give tours until August, so I will keep working with Admissions on that…I highly recommend exploring the Admissions office, and if you want to, apply to be a tour guide! They are amazing people and are a lot of fun to be involved with, I know I’ll be back to visit very often. Next up for me: training the dog, seeing some friends because I have all day to do nothing until I start working in August, and cleaning up the apartment. As usual! But without the homework hanging over my head, I am going to read a lot of books I have wanted to read for a long time now. Caltech was great about getting student loans set up to be paid in the future, and getting us ready to leave the school. It’s sad, but we’re all moving on, and they do everything they can to make it a smooth transition out of there. On to the job market now! Toodles!
Hi y’all – this is my first post on the blog, and I’m glad to be here! This is actually a continuation of my friend and fellow blogger Tyler Colenbrander’s previous post about our experience living together over the past three virtual terms at Caltech. You can see his post at this link.
It is currently 1:21 in the morning and I am thrilled to be writing the first post of our new admissions blog, Caltech Fission. For those of you who didn’t follow the old blog, it’s nice to meet you. My name is Andrew and I’m a senior at Caltech studying geophysics and English literature.
After a week being back, I think it’s about time for some reflections on what it meant to be abroad, and what I’ve taken away from it. I’m really happy to be back, but it’s just been almost a culture shock of sorts being back in California, and back at my true home (for now, at least).
