Communication

College

Although it is really expensive, you learn so much more when you go to college out-of-state. I feel like I have really been able to grow as an individual, not just academically, but personally. Not only have I learned to manage my time efficiently, but I have also increased my communication skills greatly. Unfortunately, I feel like a lot of people are still lacking communication or even the ability to properly respond to simple questions through emails.

Some people live to the ripe age of 96. Others lose their lives at the young age of 16. Six years ago today, that is exactly what happened. I will never forget it, and I guess now is a good time to reflect back on it: It was the first day of tennis tryouts: I was a freshman; he was a junior. I was finally ready to try something new, but I was a bit tentative, considering my high school experience up to that point was not really stellar and I had never really tried my hand too much at tennis.

40?

Life

While everybody else is on Spring Break, I am actually on my Winter Break! Coming back home (NH), it is quite a different change, being in this 40? weather, versus being in 70? weather in the ATL. But, it’s a good change. Plus, I like being able to quietly work, with no interrupts. This will be the optimal time for me to catch up/get ahead on a lot of work. Plus, I get the chance to just chill and hang out with friends, who I haven’t really seen in aaaaages!

Away

College

Sometimes, everybody needs a break. That is why being at home right now feels soooooooo amazing! It’s 1:35AM, and even though I am on a solid 3.5 hours of sleep, I feel more refreshed than I have in a long time. I can just feel the warmth (in the 20 degree weather :P) and love in the atmosphere, and it is just so good! Of course, I feel it at GT too, but sometimes, I feel like it loves its students a little too much (to the point where you cannot finish all of that work).

Unpredictable

College

One thing that makes college so amazing is its spontaneity. It is completely unpredictable. Who would have thought that, coming into college, I would become a 2110 TA, a research assistant, heading up the women at the college of computing, AND be taking salsa lessons? I thought it would be something like participating in Nothin’ But Treble and practicing piano non-stop, along with getting in a few hours of tennis a day.

Sine Curve

College

This weekend has been so full of ups and downs: it’s like a sine curve (okay, I know that was really lame, but I had to at least try, right? :) )! Thursday started out absolutely atrocious, especially since the CoC servers were down: I couldn’t even run the autograder, which takes less than 5 minutes to run. It was very frustrating. Friday was amazing, thanks to SAB’s Mafia Night. I told the SAB Chair (who is a friend of mine and also a really awesome guy to get to know because he’s a ton of fun) that they need to do this at least once a year, if not more often, and he seemed to agree.

Mafia Night!

College

What a week it has been! What I thought would be a mostly-laid back week (which is just a few homeworks due… at GT, anyway) turned out to be a crazy up-and-down week. But, I am glad that it ended on an amazingly high note. The SAB at the College of Computing held a MAFIA night. While I highly anticipated it and thought it would be a great stress reliever, it turned out to completely exceed my expectations.

Balance

College

Balance. That is today’s word of the day. Someone told me that, at GT, you can only ever have 2 of the following 3 things: academics, social life, or sleep, at any given moment. I could not agree more! But one of these days, I will find *the* perfect balance to get the best of all 3 worlds. Maybe at a different college you can get all 3, but at GT, that’s pretty much impossible.
