Coldstone Cupcakes

Sunday, May 5th, 2019

As the year comes to a close and finals week becomes imminent, the average student stresses out. Fortunately, St. Scholastica comes to the rescue with free Coldstone cupcakes and ice-cream. I personally  find that stress helps me get work done, but regardless of whether you are one of my sort or prefer to indulge in a brief moment of sweetness between study sessions, it is comforting that St. Scholastica is always trying to look for opportunities to alleviate student stress.

End of the Year

Saturday, May 4th, 2019

It is difficult to grasp how quickly Spring semester goes by. You are well-ingrained in your routine, the snow is still there, your professors ‘clearly exaggerate’ how quickly the semester goes by, and all of a sudden, within the span of a week, the snow clears, you are studying for your final exams, and you realize you haven’t made any arrangements to store your belongings for the summer. It has taken me three years to recognize professors are right in emphasizing how quickly this semester goes by, but I am convinced the stark weather transition that happens between late April (around freezing temperatures + snow) and Early may (40’s and no snow) is fully responsible for the psychological shock it keeps bringing. It is now (quasi-)officially summer!

“I open at the close”

You know it has been a rough week when I start thinking about good ole Harry Potter and his experience with the Resurrection Stone. For some reason, Dumbledore’s hint “I open at the close” came to my mind as I was thinking how tomorrow marks the close of yet another year of academic rigor and challenges, and the start (eh, open?) of something new.

2 done, 2 more to go!

Monday, May 7th, 2018

This past week, I had a lot on my plate with a number of presentations, a final quiz, and some papers to submit. With all that out of the way, I was able to reduce my class load to only 2 classes and I am excited to have completed all the requirements for half of my classes. This week, I have another exam and a paper to submit before I can officially say, I am done! I will be studying hard over the next couple days in preparation and wrapping up the semester!

Math Party + Final

Wednesday, December 20th, 2017

Today, I got done with the last of my finals!! This was for my Abstract Algebra class, taught by Dr. Ren. We only had to do a group discussion and present our findings. One of the best parts was that Dr. Ren brought lots of food (orange juice, bagels, and other snacks) and another student brought a box of donuts! What a nice way to end the semester and finals!!
