It’s getting down to the wire. Exactly 2 weeks until my final presentation for my interactive qualifying project (IQP) will be unveiled.

So, as my future roommate’s parents put it, “We are taking yet another step into the adult world! First you go out of your parents house to college, then again to your own apartment.” This week is a very exciting week for current freshmen, and maybe even some other upperclassmen. Ever since we’ve been back […]

We interrupt your web-surfing for this very important Public Service Announcement by the WPI Office of Admissions… We need to get something straight. WPI, as you may know, stands for Worcester Polytechnic Institute. As the name indicates, the campus is in the city of Worcester, Massachusetts. But that’s not what’s bothering me… In my three […]

This past Sunday, in addition to being Valentines/Singles Awareness Day, was the start of Chinese New Year. Being an American, I’ve always treated the start of the lunar year as one of those, “Aww, that’s nice” holidays. Of course, being in Hong Kong makes the New Year a little different. I must say, I’ve found […]

So Thursday started out as a nice beautiful sunny day. Quite opposite to the previous day which was gloomy and cold from the snow storm. From the clear blue skies to the relatively warm 30 degree weather, all in all it was a great day when I walked to my first class at 11am. Now […]

I spent my last term completing my Interdisciplinary Project (IQP) at the WPI project center in Venice, Italy. It took me over a month after returning to Worcester, but I’m glad to say that I’m back to the regular routine of classes at WPI. Spending a term overseas was an incredible experience. I lived in […]

Today a bunch of us went to the Melbourne Zoo! We couldn’t get as close to the animals as we did at the wildlife conservatory that we went to, but there was a much larger variety of animals. I think the giraffes and the zebras were one of my favorite animals to see. They kept […]

As a ¬†huge advocate of time management, I like to test how well I can balance everything on my plate. Apart from hard courses such as the infamous ECE 2011, I also work a part-time job near campus in the morning. Sometimes, my roommates look at me, gasp, and go “How do you do it?” […]
