Wow. I’ve had an intense week. And it’s only Wednesday. Now, finally, I’ve gotten to a point where the workload will be manageable from here on out, and therefore I can say,
Hello! I’m Kim. Well, I guess I’m Kimd when it comes to admissions blogging, since there’s another Kim. As you can see in my bio, I’m a senior at MIT this year. I’m taking a lot of awesome classes. One of them is 6.131: Power Electronics. It’s a lab class about the art of creating electrical devices which use power efficiently. Power Electronics is, for better or for worse, about as time consuming as it is awesome, so I’ve spent most of the last week staring at this,
except that it got more and more complicated as time went on. Eventually I had a power amplifier that I could use to play music from my laptop through a lab speaker! Now that I’ve finished the lab and shown it to a TA, I have a day’s break where I won’t go into lab — how exciting!
I’ve also been working on assignments for my other classes: 6.336, 6.012, 6.021 and 17.810 … more about them later. Luckily I’ve found some people to work with on some of the classes. Late nights always seem less painful when there’s someone to share a chocolate chip and banana blueberry yogurt concoction with :)
But, the night wears on and I have miles (well, a paper) to go before I sleep. Ttfn!
