Lead us not into Caltech, and deliver us from finals

I have survived three of my four finals.

Of course, I don't know how I actually did in any of them. But I feel confident. Even in 8.012. The irony of currently not knowing how I did in 8.012 is that, as a matter of fact, my test was graded last night and the score is sitting online, waiting for me. Just two or three clicks, that's all I'd need, but I've decided to resist the temptation until after I finish my last final (5.112, aka chemistry, tomorrow morning). Sounds sort of like college decisions, doesn't it?

Anyway. Soon to come, perhaps as early as this weekend: thoughts on first semester, including what classes I actually took; reflections on what it takes to succeed in one's classes (especially something like 8.012); hopes and dreams for IAP and spring semester; and probably even more occluded references to my UROP , which I will be continuing during IAP. (Okay, just kidding on that last one.) There may even be a long, somewhat angst-ridden reflection on what it might have been like to go to Notre Dame instead of MIT - or you can read about that on Shannon '12's blog instead, where one of my comments was longer than her entire entry. (And yes, Shannon, you are now officially a '12. You better come. =D)

On one final note, I'm really proud for coming up with that subject title. At some point, maybe I'll even try to adapt the entire Our Father into an MIT theme. Oh, the possibilities...

I once did an entire parody of "Twas the Night Before Christmas" on my blog freshman year. I kind of wish I hadn't shut the thing down just because that one poem was really a work of art. I might try again this year, but I doubt I can repeat the original in all its glory.

And I'm officially '12 now? Alright, sounds good to me.

By the way, how often were you able to catch the ND games this year?

By the way, the title is awesome. Solid use of a Catholic education.

For sure. Not that I ever went to Catholic school...
