Physics Colloquium And Advice

On Thursday, I went to Physics Colloquium and got to hear some very good advice about life in general from our speaker.

Physics Colloquium And Advice

On Thursday, I went to a talk by a Wooster graduate who was a computer science and physics double major during his time here. He chose a route into the corporate world instead of into academia. He worked for Mathematica for a while and now works at Apple. He gave some great advice on interviews and school work and how to get into the corporate world. But, he also gave some great advice on life in general, which is what I want to talk about.

One of the main points he seemed to make throughout all of his advice was giving your mind a break. One of the pieces of advice I really liked was to go for a walk. After you get so busy and stressed that you are not able to be productive anymore then taking a walk can really help. It allows you to clear your head and focus on things besides the work at hand.

Some of the other advice he gave was to have a hobby. I am really glad I have a hobby. It gives me the chance to look at something different for a little while. Sometimes it can be very stressful to just stare at my work and not do anything else so when I have the opportunity I try to take it.

The entire talk was very informative, but this advice is some advice that I hope sticks with me. It is really easy to get so busy that I forget about doing things like this. But, it just leads me into being burnt out and unable to get anything productive done.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
