Good stuff to tell you.
Took my VIKINGS midterm2 yesterday and felt fine about it. On my way to my CHEM20A TA’s office hours, I saw a few people near this guy who looked like he was contemplating running and jumping over the bike rack or something. Then I realized he was just contemplating throwing up. I stood there (eating, BTW) and watched him finally decide that he should move somewhere else to do this. His friends quickly pointed to the nearby garbage cans. He moved to them and stood over them for a minute or so and then started hurling into them. During this, a few other people had joined his friends exclaiming “Woo-hoo!” and “DONE!” which made it seem like they’d just come out of a midterm. Vomit Guy’s lunch came up in waves (as it does) and finally he finished and moved back to his friends.
Either he had just taken a midterm or was drunk or was hung-over. What do you think?
I took a CHEM20A quiz today. That felt fine, too. Go figure that I would be doing well in quantum mechanics and not in classes that I think are much “easier”. Maybe it’s like my friend Roxy said; that I’m just fascinated with the stuff. It doesn’t hurt at all that Professor Baugh’s exams are straight-forward and that he’s not trying to “trick us” on them. Jesus, this would be an extremely easy subject to make very tricky and difficult on a test.
On the “work front”, I got my official offer today to work as an intern this summer at Symantec Corp. Provided they don’t find anything I don’t know about in my background check, I’ll be working in Security Technology and Response, apparently a division that works closely with R&D and comes up with ways to apply the developments and imagine new ways to further the developments. Symantec is one of the biggest cyber-security companies in the world. I’m pumped.
Interesting. Will you be working on Symantec’s SOPA collaborative efforts?
