It’s the year of the rabbit!

It’s midterm time! I had one on Friday, I have one this Friday, two next Tuesday, and another next Friday. They were definitely invented to torture us. >.<

Life has been filled with lots of homework, studying, SACNAS, labs, lab reports, and more homework. Sometimes I can eat and sleep…but only sometimes. So starting this week, I’m going to be studying like crazy for midterms as well as starting up with research again.

I have problems to work on to help me use the tools available on COMSOL and to help me understand what it is I am doing. The difficulty with doing research is that I don’t have the program on my own computer. I can only work on research in one of the computer labs on campus. I prefer working with others and this research is more of an individual project…I think I lose my mind sometimes when I work alone.

I’ve realized something this quarter…24 hours is not long enough for one day. People say that in college one can do only two of three things: study, sleep, or party. I’ve been doing the first two, yet I still don’t have enough time, but it’s all worth it.

I get to eat Chinese food tomorrow…I’m excited! 🙂 Chinese New Year is on the 3rd!

Have a fabulous week! It’s the beginning of a new month!
