1. Snippets of Conversation (Conversion?) From Today

    "So how many Course 6 classes have you taken?"

    "Um, well none really." 


    "You want me to major singularly in philosophy?"

    "I think that would work."

    "Oh dear."


    "I was thinking about adding in some computer science, replacing the CMS…"

    "You mean you want a job when you graduate?"

    "Well, uh, yeah I guess."


    Well then.

    "dem tourists doe."

    Look at this picture and you will understand why I complain about tourists. This is a study room in the library. Mob of obnoxious tourists. Yep. It gets worse, herds of tourists have come into lecture rooms MID-LECTURE and interupted class taking pictures and “oooing” and “awwing”. 

    Lol when my friends at other colleges talk about tourists being cute and taking photos next to famous towers or statues…. That’s cute. That’s cute.

  7. Highlight Of My Day. Week? Year?

    So this shouldn’t top getting a phone call from Mr. Spock, however, Daniel Gillies is my biggest celebrity crush at the moment. So the jury is hung.

    I love his shows. I love his movies. He acknowledged my existence today. Woot. Writing for the MIT Tech certainly has perks.

    Greatest thing I’ve seen all day

    Would it surprise you to know that this happens at MIT? More specifically East Campus, my dorm? After living with these people for two years, I’ve learned to just not be surprised anymore.
