Walking at Night

Posted  by and filed under Blog.

Tonight I was walking to the grocery store when I noticed a young woman crossing the street toward me. There was a large amount of snowfall on Monday, so the sidewalks were bordered by snow banks.

New Beginnings

I am back from Ghana. You can find pictures on Flickr. I had a great time and especially enjoyed meeting the D-Lab community partners and working in the villages. Once again I was pointed out as the IT guru and helped out with a few computer issues. The administrator of the Methodist Hospital in Wenchi… Read more »

All Done

This has been an amazing semester. I have enjoyed my selection of classes, worked on some amazing projects, and had a wonderful time doing it all.

Senior Ball

Posted  by and filed under Blog, MIT.

I went, I saw, I left. That pretty much describes my experience at Senior Ball. Basically it was just a bunch of my classmates standing around dancing, drinking, and talking. I can’t believe I paid $30 for that (on top of the $120 tuxedo rental). Perhaps I am an anomaly in my generation: drinking (you’ll… Read more »

IronNerd II

I am back in my dorm room recovering after completing the IronNerd for a second consecutive year. The event was similar to last year; although, my performance was a bit worse: I was nearly 2 minutes slower this year than last.
