Weird and/or neat things I saw around campus this week, brought to you through the unsatisfying yet convenient medium of cell phone pictures:
As I was leaving East Campus for class, a squirrel with a full, lustrous, white beard waddled across my path and stared me down for a full minute. Either the ounce of fluff in its jaws was somehow dulling its survival instincts, or it was wondering if I was made of the same material. I didn't stick around to find out.
Upon reaching said class, our teacher entrusted us to level set and record using a massive set of equipment.
While walking home from the student center, I saw a strange glow emanating from Lobby 7, as if the bridge of Khazad-dûm had been bathed in the flames of a purple Balrog. It was actually just a hack.
As previously mentioned, I'm doing my thesis with the Media Lab, an extraordinarily spacious and light-filled building constructed using the maximum percentage of glass that the city of Cambridge could legally allow.
- the lobby, overtaken by an art installation
- open common space spanning 3rd to 5th floors, containing a wooden dinosaur model and a TV made up of 16 other TVs
- Opera of the Future group; the enormous hanging chandelier is actually an instrument
- the satirically named kitchenette outside my lab
My defeated thesis proposal about to be turned in.
Reese what are you doing that is not how cat feet work
I'm in a cooking group on my hall dedicated to meat. I also think I have a food addiction; I just want to eat multiple meals every day. Here are some snaps of this week's foodstuff preparation.
Sometimes, MIT isn't all as terrible as they say.
