Welcome to MIT

It is currently just past two in the morning, and I could not be happier.

In the past twenty-four hours alone, I have soldered a robot's motors, visited Georges Island, played Ultimate and wiffleball, wandered through the Prudential Center Mall, eaten at the Cheesecake Factory, walked along the Charles, roamed through Boston Commons, and taken the T twice. I've also slept a little.

Typical life at MIT? Not sure yet, but so far it feels amazing.

I have plenty more to say, but being in DME is practically a full-time occupation, so it may be another day or two before you see me. However, be on the lookout for pictures of robots, Simmons, and people in trees. Yes, I really said people in trees. It'll make sense later, I promise.

Glad to hear that you got to Boston safely and everything (no crashing and burning!)

Also...yes. Sleep is good. It is important to do that, you know, now and again.

True, but you know what they say - sleep, socialize, study; pick two of three. ;)

I have hear that "pick two" is the basic philospohy of MIT. But I'm not going to share that little tidbit with my parents! :)
