E2@MIT Day One

THEY DO NOT LIE ABOUT THE WORK HERE.


I got up at 6:45 to go running and had one five minute break in the afternoon and then get to write now but the rest of the time I had literally no time to stop or breath or explore MIT or do ANYTHING.

These are the two dashed emails I wrote to family and friends:
It is 7:03PM :D.

This is the first break i have and I actually have to get going in like one minute they just knocked on my door. I got up at 6:45 to run on the track with a group of friends and have been busy with no time to go back to the dorm at all or stop we went to two talks the first was the graduate school dean she talked alot about her research of designing armor based on scales and stuff in nature. Also google center info session and dean of engineering. Underwater robotics is really really really cool we solder and cut pvc pipe and have a lot of wires and batteries and motors pictures maybe too. We are making a underwater robot controlled with a tether. we were in lab from 1-4 today and have to go back from 7:30 to 10:30 to finish and test the robot so I actually have to go cause it takes 20 minutes to get back over there. Goodt hing is that we don't have paper homework like most of the other classes they have physics problem sets.

My roomate is a Christian and I got to pray with her before we left today so that was cool.

And what I wrote just now:

We were supposed to have our robots finished by 10:30 tonight. We didn't get out until 11:30 and that was because they practically kicked us out so they could go to sleep. No one finished their robot it was so hard :o. A lot of soldering and gluing and screwing and cutting and making a lot of mistakes and getting burnt by soldering irons. XD People from the other classes are still up doing homework and they look like they are about to explode and die. :D We have to get up 20 minutes earlier tomorrow morning. XD i have officially given up on running,

Maybe I'll write more and upload all the pics I took. XD Probably not. I still gotta write the answers to some of the questions in the book. There is a lot of bonding going on in the halls walking around everyone is awesome. Don't get me wrong it's a lot of fun, but more work than anything else. XD
