Hello, strangers. by Elizabeth C. '13

A video, a song, and some doodles.

I… have not been blogging lately. It’s too bad, right? Sorry folks, I was just swamped with April, also known as Hell Month&reg. Please don’t hate me!

Anyway, I also realized it’s been a while since I’ve posted some doodles and a video (because honestly that last one totally did not count). So here you go!

This one’s from 20.310 (Molecular, Cellular and Tissue Biomechanics):

Aaaaand 7.05 (Biochemistry), taught by the stinkin’-awesome Gene Brown. Yes, he’s almost 90. Yes, he’s taught this class for almost 60 years. And yes. HE’S FROM MISSOURI.

(He was talking about how his grandmother used to make soap from cow fat.)

Aaaaaaaaaaaand a video! It’s your lucky day.

    Wow…your notes look a lot nicer than mine.

    This is a little bit of a random question, but what pen do you use for your notes? I am in a quest of the perfect pen, and I really like how your notes look (pencils smudge, fountain pens dry out if you let them sit too long, ballpoints are difficult to write small things with, gels write too thickly…)

    Nice post!! We’re learning about the chemical composition of the different lipids… the snapshot of your notebook just reminded me 8)

    So, your notes are the most amazing thing ever, no question about it. Are all of your notes that neat and precise and easy to understand?
    And your parody=so cute!

  5. @DanielG: I used these pens: http://www.amazon.com/Paper-Mate-Medium-Retractable-1746324/dp/B001HA5PDE/ref=pd_sbs_op_6 They are my favorite.

    @Luyi: I actually sometimes have really crappy handwriting when I’m not writing notes. My handwriting varies quite a bit, actually, depending on the situation and pen. Probably says something about my personality.
