A Typical Friday Night by Hamsika C. '13

Done with 6.046 exam, time to chill

As you might have read in my last entry, I had a 6.046 (Design and Analysis of Algorithms) exam this past Thursday. Once it was over, my brain just kind of shut down and didn’t do anything productive for the next 96 hours :)

I thought I’d share the fun times I had this past Friday night, post-6.046 exam. I know that before I came to MIT, my impression of the school was just that (1) everyone was a genius, and (2) no one did anything but work. These admissions blogs (+ my CPW experience) helped change that perspective I had, and hopefully, this entry further shows that MIT is about BOTH work and fun. Not just work!

Sooo – on Friday night, several friends and I headed over to Harvard Square (about ten minutes away by bus) and went to L.A. Burdick, a store known for its delicious chocolate. We all got some hot chocolate (actually, I ended up getting a latte. I’m a coffee addict – I don’t deny it), and of course, we took way too many pictures (2 of which I’ve included here):

On the way back, Anirudh ’16 and Samvaran ’12 busted out some dance moves in the subway:

Then we took the MIT tunnels from the subway station back to McCormick, the dorm I live in.

There, Anuhya ’14 used her mad design skills to draw henna on my hand. Gorgeous, right?

Following which, we just relaxed and talked for a few hours before my eyelids started drooping and I fell asleep. As a rule of thumb, I’m generally always the first person to fall asleep -__-

I know this entry is kinda short, but I wanted to make sure I posted something before the rest of this week gets crazy/busy. MIT can be tough sometimes, but taking nights off like this makes such a huge, positive difference :)

Have a great week, everyone!
