BOOM! CPW is now over and dear sweet gummy bear in the sky was it exhausting. I don’t think I went to bed before 5 every morning. From BBQs to building things in East Campus to leading dorms tours to Meet the Bloggers to bouncy ball drop to the academic fair to the CPW festival to the random exploring of campus, I’m not sure my body can handle much more of this. Let me describe my last couple minutes for you.
[background] I’ve just woken up at 11 o’clock after going to bed at 6.
I drag myself up, into the bathroom, shower, dress, and stumble back into my room. I check my e-mails, surf the internet a little bit, and then tip over onto my bed and fall back to sleep. I’m not really laying on my bed, I’m kind of shoved into it, feet hanging off the edge, arm crammed against the wall, computer right next to me, CPW schedule right by my head. I finally just lost the ability to stay awake and died. The next thing I know I’m being woken up by my prefrosh, Chris Mills, and told that he’s leaving. I stumble out of bed, slightly delirious, and posed for a quick picture with him before he grabbed his bag and left.
CPW was amazing, thanks to everybody who came. I think it’s fairly safe to say that you have destroyed our campus. I look out today and the sky is full of clouds, it’s dreary, all of the students are still in bed, broken, and there is this sense of dread permeating everything, the dread of what is due next week. I met all sorts of exciting people, did all sorts of exciting things, and am completely bummed that I have mastering physics tonight, a test on Wednesday, and a ton of Toy Design homework due tomorrow (not to mention 18.03).
It was hard to take pictures of myself during CPW (go figure) so I stole some off of the liveblog to share.

Expect some guest blogs very soon (we’ll be harassing prefrosh to get them written) and also some video blogs, courtesy of me, Paul, Bryan, and Milena. Over the course of the next few weeks you will begin to see a lot of what MIT is about, which is very very cool.
I hope you had a good time, I know I did, and I’ll see you in August for orientation!
