Bob and I are still together and it's awesome. He moved in to my apartment with me. Even brought his desktop. Now that's commitment.
I've been trying to branch out and meet new people. It's not working too well because I’m awful at maintaining friendships. A bunch of girls and I got sad and ate ice-cream together. It was real fucking girly. That's about it for social progress in B term.
I will be living with some other people next year. I'm not sure if I want to do it. The new roommates are all nice, clean, reasonable, responsible people and the apartment is much closer to campus, but he rent is higher, the rooms are smaller and the roommates like to party. Unfortunately, unless I can find an acceptable replacement, I'm roped into it.
I had the most amazing professor ever. One of the questions on our final exam:
He also dressed up as Indiana Jones on Halloween and made his grand entrance complete with the theme music and a whip made of wires.
Also know as my huge Waste Of Time. Attendance was mandatory and the teacher would just talk about stuff she's done at more pretentious universities like Harvard and MIT. If we asked for help she'd belittle us. At least it was an easy class. I made it out of there with a 99% average. ( My professor on OO designCollapse )
Intro to Robotics:
The class was very interesting. Very hands on. We did a little of everything. Material selection, programming, the physics behind mechanical parts of a robot, gears, sprockets, 4 bar linkages, different types of sensors.
I'm joining my school's DARPA team in C term. We have a very awesome very ambitious plan in the works.

-I got custom fangs made at Haven. I hope it would make me look menacing; it didn't.

To make today much more surreal, I found out a friend of mine from WPI died. He was a really awesome, funny friendly spontaneous person and it's a shame that the world had to lose him. I know it's very cliche to say, but i wish i had known him better.
I thought today was Sunday. My friend is having a graduation party on Sunday so I went to where the party as supposed to be held and ended up crashing a wedding reception. oye!
After going to the movies,
I crashed at my friend Kyle's apartment. That morning I got up to go to the bathroom, but the bathroom was occupied by someone taking a shower. I ask him how much longer he is going to be.
"Not too long… 15 to 20 minutes,” He responds.
“Wow,” I said. “That’s a long time, I can take a shower in 5 minutes, and I’m a girl.”
“Yeah, well I have to shave.”
“ooooh right. I forget about those manly morning routines.” I wander back up stairs and relay the conversation to Kyle. He gives me a funny smile.
“What ?” I ask.
“Well," He says "That was probably my transgender roommate.”
*smacks head* somehow, I managed to squeeze TWO gender comments into that short little conversation. I'm skilled.
My favorite quote from him "Are you sure you're in the right store? [StoreName] right above us has things more your style." I was wearing a cute pinkish dress so I guess I couldn't have been interested in shopping in a goth store. *shrug*
