What I learned this semester

  • Electrical engineering is glorious. EE101 and EE200 have changed the way I see electronics, which are so ubiquitous it’s changed the way I see the world.
  • It’s okay to leave your bike unlocked in front of Tommy Trojan. (not actually, but I accidentally did and my bike didn’t get stolen, #winning)
  • Trojan football is back.
  • Be careful on your 21st birthday.
  • How MRI’s work. (I think Steve Wolfsohn and I could build one Macguyver style, no problem. Thanks Professor Singh!)
  • Caffeine is the best thing that’s ever happened.
  • Ryan Seams and I are ridiculously good at karaoke. (somebody please post the video!)
  • The RTH Café will add bacon to any order if you ask them to.
  • Never avoid trying something because you’re afraid you won’t succeed. The only way to learn to do anything right is to fail at it enough times to learn how to get it right.
  • Midnight in Paris is an amazing movie. (my favorite of the year so far – if you have any passion for art from the first half of the 20th century, go watch this fantastic film)
  • Having a trampoline in your backyard is judicially speaking probably a terrible idea, and probably an awesome idea.
  • The library in Mudd Hall is the best on campus.
  • Study groups, study groups, study groups. Misery loves company and 4 brains will understand the material much better than 1 ever could.
  • There’s no such thing as ‘too much Chikfila’.
  • USC was the right school for me, after all.
