What now? I’ve finished my senior year..and have a few days until graduation.
First…is relaxing and playing with my new iPad (it’s incredible, by the way)
Then were some senior receptions these past few days:
Ice cream social for the admissions office–PS: we moved! The admissions office moved a few weeks ago from Steele House to 383 S Hill over by the President’s House and the Einstein Papers House.
The ice cream social was done to celebrate a successful year in admissions tours and most importantly to recognize the graduating seniors for all their effort!
Friday was the Senior Reception and Dinner at Chandler. I was telling everyone that the last time just our class sat down to have a meal together was probably during rotation of Freshman Year when we first arrived. The food was so yummy…and the desserts were even prettier.
Too pretty to eat?…I don’t think so…
Then the almost-grads went to the alumni house for a special celebratory luncheon
So as you can see…it’s been a lot of relaxing and eating these past few days…and I can only foresee more of that until graduation. I’ve also been starting on the tedious task of packing up my room and selling some of my stuff (appliances, dorm room stuff) to underclassmen. That and getting prepared for my new job is keeping me busy.
Depending on the house and style of room that you choose, rooms can look pretty different at Caltech. Generally, the south houses (Blacker, Dabney, Fleming, Ricketts) have similar options, and the north houses (Lloyd, Page, Venerable) are similar in their room styles as well. Rooms in Bechtel and Avery tend to look different from the north and south house rooms as well. In this blog post, I’ll be sharing an example of what a Fleming (south house) single generally looks like, and how I’ve chosen to decorate mine.
Now, based on the title you may be wondering what kind of story this will be. As you will soon find out, it’s a story of adventure born out of the pure, dark chaos that fills the minds of sleep deprived Caltech undergrads.
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!
