Ugh. I hate how it gets dark so early now. Not that there’s anything anyone can do about it, I mean hey, that’s the way the worlds turns — literally. I suppose going off daylight savings time didn’t help, but still. Hmm. Let’s just tilt the earth so that it’s lighter later again. I’m sure that wouldn’t hurt ANYTHING. Hahahahaha. I’m such a dork — what a pathetic joke. Anyway, it’s only 5:30 and it’s already dark and it’s just depressing. Darkness makes me sleepy.
And it’s getting chilly outside. A sweatshirt is no longer enough to really keep me warm on my bike rides home once the sun has gone down…but I don’t want to carry around another jacket, so I just suck it up and deal with being cold for a few minutes.
And now that I’ve done the requisite complaining for the day… So I turned in my CFD take-home midterm today, and have the midterm in compressible flow tomorrow. I should study for it, but I just can’t convince myself that it will be very hard. I mean, come on, all I have to do is take the given numbers and plug them into given equations. Maybe I’ll have to derive a few of those equations, but I’ve done that so many times before. And it’s an open book, open note test! The odd thing I’ve found about grad school so far is that while the homeworks are a bit harder and more time-consuming…the tests are easier and often open book and notes.
Hmm. I just decided that my diary must be extremely boring to anyone who doesn’t actually know me…and quite possibly boring to even those people who DO know me as well. All I ever talk about is school and homework, and I never tell any funny stories, and I never write about how I went and did such-and-such cool thing in the Bay Area. I will have to work on that! I don’t want my life to be boring.
Two things I forgot to mention earlier. One is that I finished the entire crossword in the Daily today all by myself with no help. Yeah!!
Two, we got a list of Breakers members at dinner tonight and I just want to offer this example of the diversity found here at Stanford. The following are the hometowns of people:
I find it just amazing that I get to eat dinner every night with people from all over the world.I think dinner may be my favorite time of the day.
