That's it ladies and gents, sophomore year is over for yours truly. I'm officially a junior, halfway done with college, done with thermodynamics, and not even close to done packing. But, that's what tonight and tomorrow are for. I have to say, it's going fast.
When I applied to MIT and got in, I always thought of MIT graduates as geniuses. These people went to MIT and graduated, ergo, genius. By this standard, in two years I need to have achieved genius status. I've got a lot of ground to make up! But, when I look back, I realize that maybe I don't. I've been getting decent grades, I've been keeping up, and I've been having a good time. MIT has been a cruel mistress, but at the same time has taught me a lot, more than I probably realize.
So, while I may not think of my self as a genius when I graduate, some (hopefully future employers?) may, and I'll just smile and think of how crazy MIT was.
With that, I'm going to back and get ready to head home for the summer! I haven't spent more than two weeks at home for the last two years, I'm excited!
Oh, and one last note, and the reason I wrote this entry. I've found the song I'm going to put as the final song on the soundtrack of my "My Time at MIT" video. As I walk off, diploma in hand, you'll be hearing this.
