No Driving For Me

Tuesday, July 12th, 2005

My driving streak ended on Monday. I didn’t drive at all, although I did drive in Jays car, twice. I just wanted to mention that U of Michigan can be a pain in the butt. They consider Graduate Students as “independents” but they do not offer any grants for financial aid. The only financial aid [...]

Graduation

Saturday, April 30th, 2005

I haven’t written in a while but tonight I have a lot on my mind. I GRADUATE TOMORROW (I guess it’s technically today). I can’t believe 4 years have gone by so fast. The more I think about it the more it’s just one big blur. To be honest, I’m actually really scared. I don’t [...]

Michigan’s “Spring Break”

Saturday, February 26th, 2005

February 26, 2005: I am back home in Connecticut. Spring Break for the University of Michigan has started. I don’t think they call it “Spring Break” since technically Spring isn’t for another month. I feel like UM is the only school that is off this week. I almost didn’t make it home on my flight [...]

Exam Week

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2005

This is not a fun week for me. I had an exam today (Monday), I have one tomorrow (and a lab in the same class!) and I have a 3rd exam on Wednesday. None of this is fun! The exam today went pretty well, I think I got most of it (hopefully all of it) [...]

DONE!

Wednesday, February 16th, 2005

I just finished my take-home exam. The exam reads “This exam should take between 4-5 hours but you have 24 hours to complete it.” Lets see, I picked the exam up at 11am. I started working on it till noon. I went home and worked on it until 1 (so now we’re up to an [...]

Finals Suck

Friday, December 17th, 2004

So I’ve spent the past several days working on my EECS 452 (Digital Signal Processing Design Lab) project. Grace, Paul, Pete, Adam and I were designing a Voice-Operated TV Remote Control (which we called VOCK – “Don’t VOCK with us” was our slogan). Anyways, everything seemed to be coming along all nice and well until [...]

HKN, etc

Sunday, December 12th, 2004

So yesterday was HKN initiations, election and banquet. For those of you who don’t know, HKN (Eta Kappa Nu) is the Electrical Engineering Computer Science (EECS) Honor Society here at Michigan. Surprisingly the initiations went very quickly and we had a while to kill before elections. I have wanted to be President for 3 semesters [...]

Crazy Week Ahead

Tuesday, December 7th, 2004

So the begining of the Hell Weeks has just begun. In the next two weeks I think my free time is going to drop from “somewhat” to “non-existant.” I finished preparing for my EECS 330 Presentation. My group (of Pete, Grace and Irene) is presenting tomorrow and it should be sweet. We beamed an audio [...]

UofM Buses

Tuesday, October 26th, 2004

Today I made the mistake of spending about 15 hours of my day on North Campus. The only three buildings that I saw were the Media Union, the EECS Building and the Dow Building. And to get even more specific, I spent my time in 1500 EECS, 1 room in Dow (the same room for [...]

Brownies

Sunday, September 19th, 2004

I realized I haven’t updated my blog in a while. So here’s a post. I was actually thinking of just making it those above 2 sentances, but I decided against it. Last night my dad’s cousin called me. He was in town for his Law School 20th reunion and wanted to get together for lunch. [...]
