Here we go! The first whole week of class finally ended. Maybe it’s because the 13-hour jet lag I was experiencing, or it is the fact that I choose a full 5.5 credit of class as an A&S student, I was very tired like hell the whole week. But, while my body is tired, my mind is absolutely not. The way I choose my classes made a good combination of hard-core knowledge and critical thinking. Thanks to Tufts, I am able to choose a Philosophy seminar led by the well-known philosopher Daniel Dennett, while still take elementary computer science at the same time.
When I write this post, it is the traditional Chinese new year going on in China. Since I can not celebrate it with my family, I guess it’s time to make some new semester resolution rather than new year resolution.
The biggest thing I want to do better is to use my free time wisely. Going to the gym, contribute to clubs and organizations, playing some video game, watch NBA…the list goes on. Here by free time I mean the time that I do not use to study. I want to use my free time, especially small piece of free time wisely. I can do some job research, for example, in order to find a good summer internship. I can read a small chapter in the assigned book and use my way on the road to think about it. Or even break some of my homework down to small parts and finish them one by one instead of sitting at Tisch for 4 whole hours.
The second thing I want to do is to take a risk
The last thing I want to do is to make myself do things quickly. I have a habit of thinking too much
Finally, I wish all of you a happy Chinese New Year of Rooster. Eat dumplings if you never tried it before, it’s delicious!
