Methodical Madness Caps the Semester

Well, this sucks. It's 1:20AM, December 19, and I am leaving for home in... 9 hours, driving 10 hours. I will be awake, in a car, driving, longer than I will sleep tonight. It's going to be terrible. As such, I can't write nearly as much as I would like to write for this final post.

I will say that this semester, this class, has been the most valuable class that I have taken at Michigan. The principles I learned, the people I met, the discussions I had... it was life-changing. Max, John, and Karl were right, not surprisingly. They are truly brilliant, in their own ways.

I came into this class resigned to the idea that I was going to be stuck a metallurgist as an engineer. I knew this wasn't actually the case, but it was difficult not to think so.

I will miss this class. I will hopefully keep in contact with as many of the people as possible. I know it won't happen with most, but the people I met were all rather great in their own ways. Even those I did not get along with quite well, I had great respect for.

For those considering taking this course next year, and thinking it may be too much work - do it. It may be a lot of work, but it is worth it. Trust me.


Now, for a shameless plug!

I am continuing with another blog: Concrete Theory
Hopefully at some point it will be worth the read.
