Almost Only Counts in Horseshoes by Bryan
I almost did it. Rather I almost didn't do it. And all for a class I'm not even in.
So like Mitra pointed out in her blog this week, this week MIT celebrated just about every week it could.
Knowing that this week would be packed with activities and stuff that I’d want to do, I decided to get all my homework done early and take my free Monday off to get ahead. And so I did.
Cue the fun part of the week.
“Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd…”
Surgeon General’s Warning: This musical is not for the weak stomached. It involves mild acts of cannibalism and bad haircuts.
Wednesday night, I braved the long lines to wait for advance screening tickets to Corpse Bride courtesy of LSC. Of what I got to see, it was an awesome movie. I definitely suggest checking it out just for the art alone.
Thursday was originally going to be exciting as well. I hoped to get free tickets to Carmen from the Council for the Arts, but they ran out.
(Bryan talking to himself in 3rd person)
Bryan: So pray tell, what did you do Thursday night?
Bryan: I did 18.03.
Bryan: I thought you already took that class?
Bryan: I did.
I didn’t realize how hard math is sometimes.
So Thursday night, at the house, a lot of the freshmen were working on problem sets, and I volunteered to help some people on their math homework. (8 pm)
I went to sleep at 4 am, and I still didn’t finish the problem. I would have stayed up longer trying to finish the problem, but I have made a contract with myself to NEVER pull an all-nighter.
Instead, I just woke up at 7 am to finish the problem.
Here’s the problem, try it on for size.
