The week before “the moment of truth” (aka Finals)

Hey UIC!

I am now what I’d like to call “student survivor mode.” In the past 72 hours I have:

  • Averaged 4 hours of sleep each day
  • 12 lab reports
  • 2 term projects
  • 1 oral presentation
  • 3 Finals Monday, 1 on Friday

This past semester I actually broke my record of the most papers I written, 124 pages and still counting. Coffee becomes your BEST FRIEND.

Bright side is that I got an early Christmas gift! We had our JST RA/PM Staff Secret Santa gift giving with a cultural potluck and my Kris Kringle gave me the coolest gift, a Nerf Gun. I owe it to her for choosing the ones with the strong darts I wanted =)

Best College Gift Ever

On the academic side, I presented one of my term projects for Transportation. My answer to Chicago gridlock is a lot like what Bill Ford, grandson of Henry Ford, states “more roads isn’t simply the answer.” I proposed the idea of solar roads to help Chicago. Not only will it help Chicago traffic, but also assist in providing green jobs and local revenue to Chicago communities as well as increase safety in our streets especially during winter

Presentation on Solar Road Technologies

For more information about what where I got the idea, look here:

Unfortunately I don’t have a list this week as I try to finish all these lab reports for tomorrow. But I’ll make it up to you all after finals week.

Good luck to everyone!
