I came back from a month winter break. During my break, I got to spend time with my family and friends. My family made lots of food for welcoming me back home. The food was so good that it made my tummy super full. They made tamales, homemade spicy sauce, and flan which is a caramel custard. My sister and I went to visit one of the attractions in LA and went to see family friends from the south. It was a relaxing break which I needed after a long fall semester.
Now, fast forward to week two being back on campus. The weather has turned from o.k. to really chilly. You can see the photo to get the idea of how cold it is. I am blessed that a friend of mine made me a scarf long enough to cover my neck and face from the icy snow and keep me warm enough to walk to class.There’s also a picture of a snow trail. I took that path as a shortcut to get to class on time.
The last picture is a photo of my agenda. This is my strategy to get my work done. In black ink is the subject or the homework. The red ink is the due date. The purple ink is my side notes.
One of the fun things that happened this week is about Professor Todd. He had a full class (all LST students) in Chemical Separation and Chromatography. I sat at the corner and Professor Todd walks up front and back. I barely see him signing the lecture. This is the fun part. I raised my hand to ask him to move, so that I can see him signing. He tried so hard to stay back of the white board. I told him maybe I should get superglue and glue his shoes. He had an idea and walked to the supply table and grabbed some tape and put tape on his shoes, so that he wouldn’t move. He and everyone laughed. Our class can be fun, especially seeing our professor do funny things like this.
