Hello again, readers! If you're wondering why I've taken a break from blogging for a while, my father died suddenly a couple of months ago. It has been a strange and staggering experience, but I think now is the time for me to return to those things that made my dad so proud. During the next six months I'll be finishing up my enlistment in the Navy, preparing for MIT, and doing some research that will help me hack the number of hours in a day. Next week I will be acquiring a very rare book to aid my research efforts, so that will likely become the focus of much blogging. =)
In other news, MIT released early action admissions decisions last Saturday. I now have over 500 fellow members of the Class of 2012! To my new classmates, CONGRATULATIONS!!! See you next fall! Until then, keep in touch and get to know yourselves on the Facebook group. To all those deferred, take heart! I was deferred last year, and when I got accepted during regular action I turned the tables and deferred my enrollment for a year! Unfortunately, I think it had less to do with dramatic irony, and more to do with completing my commitment to the Navy.
Our holiday stand-down starts on Thursday, so I'll be driving 11 hours to Nashville, Tennessee to be with my family for Christmas. I can't wait! What are your plans?
