Well, shit.

I seem to have this trend of thinking I'm close to failing (or at least getting C's in) all of my classes, and then...

ta-da!

doing fine afterall.

Finally got the last of my grades back today; it figures that, during my most difficult semester so far, when I'm taking six classes (albeit one of them pass/fail), TA-ing another one, manage to finally elevate in APO, and am working at the music library the whole time...

is my best one so far. I got one B. In 8.04. Remember that quantum was the class I was thinking of dropping earlier in semester when I got a 45 on an exam that had an average of 70. And everything else was a mixture of A's and A-'s, which are effectively equivalent at MIT. Plus a "P" for pass.

But really. What the hell.

I'm not complaining; I just feel like this is something that has been happening to me ever since I was in middle school - I think that I'm doing worse in a class than I actually am. Honestly, I think I half do it just to stay motivated or else I really would fail - because I totally have bombed exams, and it's ridiculously easy to do.

Eh, regardless, it's really really nice that the term from hell is over. Six classes is really not a very good idea, even if you do do reasonably well.

Summer: I live in an awesome room in pika now, and will be living there next year as well. Working several jobs, including the fact that I need to become more familiar with working in linux (kchen, you're my hero for teaching me the little I do know) plus Matlab. The Matlab help function is the most amazing thing ever, by the way. Need to write some emails, write a few documents for the radio thing later. Also pick up some Johnny Cash at the music library - keep forgetting to, and being sad when I run into Michael later and realize I forgot because there were ridiculous amounts of shelving to do. Perhaps writing it down will help me remember.

Living at pika is awesome - dinner every night (real food! including awesome vegetarian options!), no loud neighbors or traffic on Mass Ave, and a front yard to play gardener in. (I have a whole pile of seed I still want to plant... but sooo much weeding and raking to do. Sunday's job... and maybe tomorrow afternoon for a little while)

Anyhow - work tomorrow! I should send that email and go to sleep.

Basically: I apparently don't know how to not be too busy. Still, it's kind of fun :-D.

Oh, and a few days ago I put a Mac sticker on my Eee PC. Just to confuse people ;-).
