The Days Leading Up to Ditch Day

I got to put all the things I wanted in my stack and was so happy to see it come to life and happen on ditch day :). This past weekend, I have been recuperating and fighting off the beginnings of a cold. I guess my body does that after finals weeks…it kinda breaks down from exhaustion.
Anyway…Andrew said he would blog about all the stuff that happened on Ditch Day…while I wanted to post pictures from some of the preparation I made during the week leading up to it 🙂

Those are a few pics from our side…be sure to watch out for Andrew’s post on the actual Ditch Day 🙂
By the way.. pranking the admissions office was put on the Caltech website again with an updated article and a video! Check it out to see how the Admissions staff went about doing their fake stack.
