Home for the Holidays!

I have successfully finished out one full semester of college. Now it is time to go home for three whole weeks! What a satisfying feeling.

I have learned a lot. Here is a non-exhaustive list:

  • FORTRAN is a ridiculous programming language (unless you need to process massive amounts of data).
  • I have the ability to keep peace on a team.
  • Never leave detergent unattended in the laundry room.
  • Sometimes it's a good idea to correct a professor's error, sometimes it is best left alone.
  • Polar coordinates are actually easier to work with in many cases.
  • Meals are grossly overpriced at ISU.
  • Teach a parrot to say "supply and demand" and you've created an economist.
  • Though it sounds elementary: if you're stuck, get help.
  • I have a surprising tolerance for noise and rowdiness (that's new).
  • Sometimes you need gc in your calculations, sometimes you don't.
  • If you open the door and face a wall of wrapping paper, don't just charge through.
  • The best time for quiet thinking is 6:30-7:00 in the morning.
  • To stay on top of things in a hard class, read ahead.
  • All about partial derivatives, multiple integrals and vector calculus.
  • All about ... chemistry.
  • A lot about the love of God.

    Polar coordinates are truly a wonderful thing.

    If you open the door and face a wall of wrapping paper, don't just charge through. This was funny!! Gave me a good laugh! I did this with a clean sliding glass door!
    Merry christmas and my the LORD richly bless you.

    I didn't say it was in any specific order.
