Twice a year all of the bloggers essentially get a freebie post. We each get our schedules and get to talk about our classes, yay! Schedules just appeared the other day and mine is, as far as I know, in its final form.
Although I’m excited to have new classes and a fresh start, a new schedule means that school (and the accompanying work) is about to begin. This makes me sad. I think that MIT sans work would be an amazing thing, as evidenced by Orientation, CPW, and IAP, but unfortunately we must endure PSETS, exams, and sleepless nights. What will be causing those sleepless nights this year? Here we go!
As you can see, my Mondays and Wednesdays are pretty awesome. My Friday is pretty the opposite of awesome. Oh, and a quick translation for those of you who don’t speak numbers.
2.003 = Course 2, Mechanical Engineering, Dynamics. Basically, the mechanics part of physics only concentrating more on movement and using differential equations.
2.005 = Course 2, Mechanical Engineering, Thermodynamics and Fluids. This is the class I’m afraid of failing. It’s notoriously difficult so I’m going to try to put a lot of effort into it.
Toy Design = This is where I continue to work on ElectroPlushies and get them up and running. We’re meeting with a manufacturer in a couple of weeks to discuss production so this class gives me a chance to work on details.
Western Narratives = My HASS-D class (HASS=Humanities, arts, and social sciences. Basically, MIT forces you to take artsy-fartsy classes in order to stay well-rounded and pallateable to normal society). We read classics of Western narratives and watch on film, with a generous amount of writing, analyzing, and discussing.
Digital Poetry = Using different technological mediums to create poetry. This includes MatLab, Flash, HTML, and various others. This is also a HASS class.
I’m quite excited, not for Friday, but I think that Monday and Wednesday will provide a good catchup opportunity to get some work done. It all starts September 3rd, way too soon!
