I CANNOT GET OVER HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS HERE!
Yes. So did I mention how nice it is here? Classes could be great, or they could be awful, and it would still be wonderful here because of the scenery and the weather. Everyone reading this must come visit me. My spring break is March 23-April 1. Or you can come anytime. I’ll just stay here and host one big California party.
Classes started today. I went to five of them, and should end up taking four of those. Plus one more on Tuesday/Thursday. My Mondays and Wednesdays will suck, but what can ya do? So, in the case someone might actually be interested, I’m taking: AA210a (compressible flow), AA240a (intro to structures), AA214a (numerical methods in computational fluid dynamics), ME200a (linear algebra, basically), and E105 (feedback control systems). From looking at the syllabus for each class, it seems like I’m going to be doing a lot of review this first quarter…I recognized practically every topic from something we did in undergrad classes at Tech, except for the CFD class. Oh, and then my sixth class is Music12b — introductory piano!
Tomorrow night is a meeting for the Stanford Daily…so I figure I’ll go check it out. They don’t have a daily entertainment section, but maybe I’ll see if I can write some reviews. Another option is to apply to be a columnist…to do so, I have to submit two 500-700 word articles as well as 10 column ideas. If you have any suggestions, please let me know! I was thinking of submitting two of my old Technique editorials, but I need help with the 10 ideas.
I have a 2nd audition for the flute ensemble tomorrow, since the women who were listening yesterday aren’t the ones who are actually in charge of the group. I have to prepare a solo…yikes! I need to practice! Good thing I only have one class tomorrow. I am really nervous. Somehow I get the feeling this group is really good, and much more serious than the informal flute choir we had going at Tech…
