As I said before, this has been one of my favorite independent study periods in that I feel like I've gotten slightly closer to figuring out balance. The past few days have not been as good, workload-wise, but a large part of that is owed to the fact that I had six REU (they're basically undergraduate research internships) applications due on the first of February and I put off much of the application process until the day before.

Miniclasses went on throughout all of yesterday and are continuing through part of today - basically, for those who don't know, they are scheduled 15-minute chunks of time in which a professor talks about a class that they are teaching and explains the type of material that will be learned, or workload expectations, or how capping procedures will work (who will be let into the class), and other pertinent information. In my first year of college, I went to a miniclass in nearly every time slot; I've since grown a bit more relaxed.

I did find out that I apparently should take Probability alongside Statistical Mechanics; with Partial Differential Equations and/or Solid State Physics (depending on whether one of them can be convinced to move to a non-conflicting time), that brings me up to three or four Physics/Math courses for this semester, which is okay but more than I was originally counting on. For my fifth class, I'm looking into Entomology or one of the art classes - Drawing or Sculpture.

In other news, my laptop monitor has stopped working! Yay!

In other other news, I get to TA Gen Chem again next semester, and my adviser asked me if I'd also be interested in running a once-a-week hour-long session with his astronomy students.

In other other other news, these Original Sin Bars look delicious and I kind of want graham crackers and chocolate and powdered sugar so that I can make them now. Actually, this weekend should be a baking weekend anyhow. I already bought the chocolate chips for the cookies that I first made here and have prepared a few times since then. It's a pretty big recipe, so I might like to mail some to my sister this time.
