Hey everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your winter breaks – I know I certainly did. I spent about four weeks at home catching up with family and friends. Some quick highlights of my break are that I got to see two hockey games with seats on the glass – Anaheim Ducks vs. San Jose Sharks on New Years Eve and my Los Angeles Kings vs. Winnipeg Jets last weekend! If you’ve followed me on social media at all over the past semester, it’s no secret which of those teams is my favorite!
I also was able to practice skating a lot in my free time and was even able to go with my family a couple times. Now that I’ve been playing for a while, I can teach them a thing or two!
Now that my shockingly hockey-focused break is over, it’s time to look forward to the Spring semester. Here are a few things that I’m looking forward to:
- My Classes
- CSCI 270: Introduction to Algorithms and Theory of Computing
- MATH 245: Math for Physics and Engineering I
- EE 352: Computer Organization and Architecture
- PHYS 316: Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics
- PHYS 153: Fundamentals of Physics III (I’m taking this class with Betty!)
- Course Producer for CSCI 103
- I’m very excited to be a course producer, which is a sort of undergraduate teaching assistant, for CSCI 103: Introduction to Programming this semester. I’ll be helping with grading, running labs, and holding office hours, all while getting to know some of the younger students in my major.
- Hockey Season
- Spring is really the main season for Women’s Ice Hockey, even though we play all year long. Our practices are more serious and we are even going to a tournament in Las Vegas in April!
That’s all I have for now, but I can’t wait to tell you all more about my semester as it gets going!Meet Ellen
