I’ve been so preoccupied with all this stuff going on…that I was completely taken aback when I returned from spray painting for DD to find an email informing me that I had won a free 32G iPad!!
I participated in the Senior Survey where I answered questions about my academic, social and personal experiences my time here at Caltech. It’s a bit long, but all the information is super important for the university to be able to evaluate educational programs and analyze data for the benefit of students. Those who participated where automatically entered in the raffle to win the grand prize of an Apple iPad!…I NEVER win anything when it comes to raffles so I was totally surprised to find out it was my lucky day :)
After considering that it could possibly be a joke being played on me and calling my dad to inform him of the awesome prize, I went to go claim my winnings at Caltech Wired (our on-campus computer store) in the afternoon..was sooo EXCITED!—
To be honest, I have not even played with one at the Apple Store…I checked out the ones on display, and it was my first time holding one.
Contrary to what I normally would have done…I have yet to OPEN IT!! I know, I know..I feel retarded for saying that…but seriously….Ditch Day is TOMORROW and I’ve been focusing on finishing all of the last minute touches on our stack :)..yep…more exciting than the iPad!
Can’t wait to play with it though!
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!
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!?
