I have some pretty fond memories of second semester senior year, largely consisting of doing nothing, making random trips to Steak ‘N Shake on weekday nights, and sleeping more than I had, like, EVER.
And in officially less than 4 days (OHMYGODDECISIONZ), over a 1000 of you will be right there with year-ago-me. Yay, you now know where you’re going to college (MIT, clearly), your teachers have given up on trying to make you work, and life is good.
But in the meantime, you probably want to do anything but work, so that is why I propose the following: an MIT Admissions Blogs wide game of Funny Farm.
It is pretty much impossible to solve this by yourself, though I wouldn’t put it past an MIT applicant to actually be able to do it. The game is pretty self-explanatory: you start with the phrase “On A Farm,” which is connected to a bunch of boxes. Those connecting lines indicate that the general idea of the connected box is along the lines of the original, and the number of dots is the number of letters in the word. Okay, in case I’m not making sense, here’s the game with a couple of solutions in it:
Following? Okay, the clincher here is you can actually save the game AND just post the link they give you anywhere. Meaning, we can all work on this together and keep posting what progress we’ve made on the game in the comments. Even better, you can actually merge games, too, so if someone posts a new link you can just add their answers to the game you’re working on.
So have at it, MIT applicants. Here’s the link to the game I just started above. :)
