Got key to my cubicle

Now I officially have a place to work in my lab building. Need to set up the desktop though, assuming there's a spare monitor and keyboard and mouse...

On a trip to puzzle & toy shop in Boston, E.D. got me an upgrade for my Rubik's cube that broke a while ago from overuse. This new one is a dodecahedron. Deviously complicated wahahahaha...

Since I don't know enough group theory to work out the solution by myself, I'm following these steps. Although I'm currently stuck on Step 8, because somehow I'm not comprehending this part very well...

One of these days I will figure it out...

I'm really excited about this class, even though I'm not 100% sure where it will be held, because it was never explicitly stated...

Must be a deep desire to make up for lost play time.

I wonder if I should have become a mechanical engineer instead, but I think it's easier to learn mechE after knowing EE than the other way around, haha.

There have been many times when I imagined myself as an architect. Huh.

Good PI

My research advisor likes to tell stories. Lots and lots of them. It's quite entertaining. I learn a few things new each time he tells me stories. :-) He's also a wonderful mentor who takes care of his students.

I may not be able to escape fabrication work though, which means I'll be around for a bit.

I have a serious dearth of material to put here. In fact, one might see a regression (more like change of style, um?) Dang it, real life!
