Turkey day!

UIC UIC UIC!! (11/23/12)

I had just finished Thanksgiving dinner when I wrote this blog post — it was SOOO GOOD!! Sadly, I had to miss my family’s Thanksgiving this year due to engineering projects, but I got the next best thing: dinner with my Housing Family! The MRH/TBH FIRs served everything homemade: turkey with cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes with gravy, green been casserole, seasoned brussel sprouts, baked biscuits and salad.

Thanksgiving dinner with our Faculty-In-Residence at MRH/TBH.

Exciting news this week! One of my friends who also graduated from UIC and is now a kindergarten teacher just got engaged. Congratulations! I stopped by her house to hear the news first hand and to visit her dogs. As you can see from the picture below, they were ecstatic to see me.

They were excited to see me as well!

So these next few weeks, I’ve been working on term projects for each of my classes. Here’s what I’ve been working on: 

CME 301: Steel Design Roofing Project. Accommodating various loads, designing panel points, designating beam types.

CME 410: Prestressed Concrete Structure Milan Highspeed Rail System. Source picture: impregilo.it


CME 396: Designing water reserviors for the town of Wanda, Ill.

CME 434: Analyzing the wing of a Cessna airplane under given wind loads.

That’s what I’ve been working on this week. Next week, I’ll talk about my favorite movies to watch as I prepare for FINALS WEEK!

Stay classy Chicago!

TOPIC NEXT WEEK: Favorite study time movies!

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What type of music do you listen to while you study?? (I like acoustic or piano songs.)
