Well. Actually not much to say today. I got a review of thermodynamics courtesy of Dr. Cantwell’s compressible flow class. I had a turkey sandwich and ramen noodles for lunch at Breakers. I hadn’t eaten ramen noodles in years, and so I actually quite enjoyed them. While I ate I read the New York Times.
After lunch I did my controls homework. It was all going well until I got to the last problem and realized that I’ve pretty much completely forgotten how a circuit operates, and thus could not derive the differential equation for it. It’s not really my fault, since I’m not an electrical engineer (at least that’s the excuse I’m using), but it was frustrating nonetheless. So I took a break and went to get the handlebars on my bike tightened so that they won’t shake anymore. Bought a hex wrench so that next time I can do it myself.
Rode back onto campus and headed to Durand for the controls TA’s office hours. Xavier was no help at all from 5-5:30 and only confused me even more, but Drew took over at 5:30 and suddenly everything made sense. Finished the homework and headed back to Breakers for dinner. It was really good tonight — chicken curry with random coffee cake and whipped cream for dessert. Yum.
Went to Roble with Nick and Emily to watch him run through his tap routine for his audition tomorrow. It looks good. I like the pull-backs at the end, even if it does look kind of funny. It sounds cool. Came home, and put together half my application to be a columnist for the Daily. I can’t decide which of my ‘Nique editorials to submit…I need to choose two of them. Decisions, decisions.
Soon, to bed.
