Back in New Haven

Shortly after the annual whirlwind of moving in, I already find myself swamped with work the first full week of classes. Here are the five courses I've settled on for this term:
  • Introduction to Cognitive Science
  • Brain and Thought
  • International Studies: Contemporary Challenges
  • Advanced Chinese
  • Advanced Korean
These six credits (language courses are 1.5 credits) compose a remarkably symmetrical schedule: I begin every weekday at 10:30, have lunch from 1:00-2:30, and am done by 3:45 (3:20 on Tuesdays and Thursdays).

In general, I'm genuinely very excited about my classes this term (much more than last year). Unfortunately, I probably won't have much free time to blog while at Yale. That said, I discovered blogging to be enjoyable and somewhat therapeutic this summer, so don't be surprised to see occasional updates on my life this semester!

"Leben Sie jetzt die Fragen. Vielleicht leben Sie dann allmählich eines fernen Tages in die Antwort hinein."
