I passed my undergraduate baccalaureate examination/thesis defense yesterday! It wasn't bad at all, and could've been even better if I had more time to study the pertinent Physics.

This means that:
A) I'm graduating!
B) More free time! I got to play Ultimate Frisbee yesterday, and will probably get to do it again next week. I saw Iron Man 3 last night. I hope to play Bioshock Infinite soon. And do karaoke with a few of my friends. And bake cake/cookies with the newly formed Asexual group at my school. By finals/graduation week, I'm entirely done with schoolwork, which is nice. A friend who graduated two years ago will also be visiting.

There's less free time than I think, though, because I'm finally applying for jobs. I already have something (Duke TIP Robotics TA) lined up for the summer, but I need things to do after that. On the plus side, I've found a few things that I might be interested in doing. Also: My friend L. has already said that I can work on his wife's farm in Virginia for a month or two and any point in time if I want to. That gives me a temporary fallback if I have nothing, and a potentially fun thing to do otherwise.

Should probably think more about what/if graduate school, and whatnot, but I don't know what I want to do with myself yet. Rochester Institute of Technology's Imaging Sciences program sounds intriguing, but it's the only one of its type.

Not sure yet what will happen with C. We're staying together after graduation, but it seems likely that we'll end up going our separate ways if we end up heading in different directions or being in different geographical locations. That makes me sad to think about, but I tell myself that it'll be okay - and it probably will be.

Usually the future is scary, but at this moment in time, things feel okay.

I'm at college now, and have been at college for a little over two weeks. I haven't stopped checking this site completely, but I haven't been commenting much.

I'm taking six classes again this semester, which is busy but seems to be going all right. I need to make sure that I enforce a good bedtime, though; even on days when I don't do as much work, I've been getting to bed after midnight.

As anyone reading this might've gathered, I'm still pretty seriously considering a Physics major. I enjoy so many different subjects (so many!), but Physics is something that I can see a lot of different possibilities in (as opposed to Religious Studies or some of the other things I've been considering). I may not end up as a lab researcher, but I can take it into biopsych or archeology or astrophysics or meteorology or engineering or arms history (like V-2 rockets or U-boats or airplanes - so cool!). This isn't to say that I'm 100% decided on anything yet, but I'm certainly leaning in that direction at the moment.

Other stuff? People (friends) are still nice to hang out with. Yay! I went to see Scott Pilgrim vs. The World with others recently, which we all enjoyed. Most of the other stuff that we do together is fun but probably not very interesting to talk about; we watch things (sometimes), hang out, play video games, play other kinds of games, talk, and just do general college student-y things.

Oh! I did join Parkour club. I had doubts, but the first meeting was a whole lot of fun! We learned how to vault onto/over walls (I can't do much of the "over" bit yet, unless I'm working with a fairly short wall) and roll (to break falls, I suppose).
