Right now, I am blogging from the SFL library on the first floor…and I probably shouldn’t be…
It is 3pm right now, and I have a homework set due at 5pm! YIKES…my heart is kind of racing, I’m typing like a maniac and chugging coffee….
Don’t worry too much though, since I only have one problem left (I worked last night until 4am with my study group)…and now we are cramming to finish up before we need to run it in.
I am not used to working on a set a few hours before it’s due—I’m usually the “finish it up the night before” kind of girl…but CDS110 has made me succumb this term.
Other great news?!?–It is the last day of classes for the term–and MY LAST SET FOR THE TERM! WOOHOO!!!
and to make things even better—bc my next (and last!) two terms are super chill, I have a feeling this will be one of the last times I will be scurrying to finish up sets or working really late into the night. :D so there’s lots to be happy about…
You’re squished with all your dorm essentials in the back of the car and your parents in the front trying to find parking. Emotions are high: Will you make friends? Will classes be too hard? What’s your roommate going to be like?
So you’ve done it! You’re going to attend Caltech, one of your dream schools, and you can officially call yourself a Techer. Maybe you grew up in sunny Southern California or, like me, moved thousands of miles from the East Coast (where they actually have seasons.) Regardless of how familiar you are with Pasadena or the Caltech campus before attending, becoming a student is a unique and new experience. Life at Caltech can be fun, but it is also one of the most rigorous schools in the world. It is important that your own health and wellbeing is always a top priority, regardless of whatever commitments you have on your plate.
Senior year tends to differ widely between different folks. Some have finished nearly all their major requirements, while others will be working through their classes all the way until graduation. My friends and I all fall on different points along this spectrum, but we all have something in common: we’re ready for second and third term.
