U-I-C, U-I-C!!–

Pics of the week:

Midterm week = messy room, notes everywhere


Elly's Pancake HOUSE!! Stress relief after midterms, Gangnam food style =P

Sorry about the inconsistent blog format, I’m playing with different styles each week to see which is best! So this week’s format will be according to my highlights last week:


Monday: MRH/TBH RA staff meeting and Hall Council’s s’mores night. I was preparing for my Wednesday exam for CME 410: Prestressed Concrete Design.

Tuesday: Typed up my student staff class’s Strength Quest Paper. My top 5 strengths were Competition, Individualization, Significance, Activator and Ideation. Each plays a critical role in my lifestyle.

Wednesday: EXAM DAY! I missed my first two classes in order to prepare for the exam =(. The exam was on the structural analysis of prestressed concrete beams.

Thursday: GAME DAY! I played for an intramural basketball team called Abby’s Avengers. We played like champs but lost the game to FIA-tastic. I’m proud of my team though.

Friday: We had a guest lecturer for our Senior Design Class (as shown below). My best friend came to visit and we went to Elly’s Pancake House. The FOOD was amazing and I’ll definitely be stopping by again.

Lecture on Non-Linear Optimization Methods for companies/manufacturing plants

Talking to Christy, my supervisor =) I WANT THIS PEN. Imagine the immensity of color that will be on my notes, especially in engineering, where things can get a big confusing without color.

I felt like I’ve been typing forever, must save energy for blog next week.
