Finals and Finale
My finals are agreeably spaced across a full week. First came Earth Systems Science last Monday, and tomorrow I have Physics. After a weekend of frantic revision, my academic year will wind up with Calculus next Monday – and that’s that. Oh wait, it’s not – there’s also the 15-20 page paper for Development Policy which will be literally the only assignment (and only grade) for that entire course. No pressure.
Suffice it to say that I’m busy, and spent probably 18 hours in the AC over the last two days. That aforementioned paper has required me to dive deep into the intricacies of Malaysian economic policy-making, a topic which has turned out to be surprisingly informative on the global capitalist system. Meanwhile, my head has been swimming today with Faraday’s Law, Gauss’ Law, Maxwell’s equations, and essentially anything else that will allow me to understand electromagnetism. The perils of a double major – having to synthesize and understand two large bodies of entirely unrelated knowledge.
This may (or may not be) my last post of the year. I’m sticking around after classes end until May 18th, in order to watch my big brother and fellow Diarist Rian graduate. First I’m heading down to New Jersey to visit Julianne’s family for several days. Then, returning to Clark, I’ll be volunteering for Reunion, and sharing Johnson-Sanford Hall with 300 alumni who are being housed by Clark in between endless parties and guest speakers. I may be far too busy to post – or I may have lots to tell all of you. In any case, thank you for reading my blog this year – it’s been a lot of fun, and I’ll see you next year!
