It’s always exciting to get not just a three-day weekend, but an entire week free from classes!
Back in high school spring break was in the middle of April, but here it’s at the end of March. Most other colleges have spring break a week or two earlier, meaning we don’t get to see many of our high school friends when we go home. :( But, this is because they start the spring semester weeks before we do because we have IAP. So ha!
Well, this entry is a bit premature. Many people are still in class. In fact I’m in an Athena cluster right now, supposed to be working on my UROP but instead writing this.
By the way, a few weeks ago I got a UROP! I never thought I’d be joining the ~85% of the MIT population which eventually does research in a UROP, but surprise surprise. I won’t bore you with details, but my group wants to change old power plants into cogeneration plants (those output both power and heat) by channeling the waste heat into heating for surrounding buildings. Yay!
Where was I? Oh, spring vacation. I used to go home for spring break, but since I don’t really like home that much I decided to stay at my boyfriend’s home in DE. Hopefully it’ll get warm enough to walk along the beaches at least!
Before then I’m trying to clean my room, so that one day I can take pictures and write a post about my awesome room in East Campus for you. :)
Happy Spring~~~~! ^_^
