A spy in your midst!
Hello Class of '08!
So, I'm a member of HMC class of '06, and I have enjoyed reading about all of you. I think you have a really cool class that's coming in.
I just wanted to post to offer up myself for any questions any of you have about Mudd, college, curing hangovers, dating at mudd... whatever!
My name is Laura and I'm an engineering major.Between my friends and my interests, I know a thing or two about just about everything on campus. I'm more than happy to answer questions or even just to chat! I hope you don't mind an upperclassmen invading. :) Current Mood: cheerful

I alreday posted this on the proboard but...
Hey guys, I posted this on the proboard, but I like our lj community better, so I'll elaborate more.
I started talking to Adam from the muddforum if you guys haven't seen it yet. You should all check it out. http://forums.muddstudents.com
You have to register in there with your hmc email, for privacy purposes. Anways, Adam's in 2 choirs. One of them is called Shower Quality. They're a pretty new choir in the 5C's and he got me really interested in trying out for them. What's sad about SQ is that they've only got 3 guys in the choir. 3!! So sad. Though they would love girls to try out for choir, they love guys to try out even more. So who wants to try out? It's really cool. Adam's a really awesome person as I'm sure the other members of SQ are too. I don't think they will be a lot of drama like the high school stuff some of us have experienced. So try out!! It'll be fun! Who's interested?

a quick question
Hey everyone. Haha, I have kind of a strange question (I think), but here goes.
I'm half-Japanese, half-Caucasian... so when I received an e-mail from this HMC junior, introducing himself as my CLSA (Chicano/Latino Student Affairs) sponsor, I thought, "how nice of CLSA to assign sponsors to the entire freshman class and help them out... that's really cool." However, today I got a letter from CLSA; in it, they said, "You represent one of the few Latinos who go on to private higher education." My response: "uh... actually, I don't represent any Latinos, period." My mother also got a letter from CLSA today written in both English and Spanish, which surprised her ever so slightly. So I'm starting to think that they're under the impression that I'm Latino.
My question: Did everyone else get an e-mail from a CLSA sponsor? Or do they only assign sponsors to Latino students? I've already sent an e-mail to my CLSA sponsor to let him know I'm not Latino, but I was hoping to get a faster answer from you guys.
Thanks! Current Mood: confused

Whee! I just ordered my computer for college. Very nice deal. I'm excited. That is all. Current Mood: excited
This is a Pomona-based station playing some pretty cool tracks. You can listen to the live webcast from their website. Current Mood: excited

Heh... funny how I choose to start posting to this community as soon as (almost) everyone leaves... some subconscious desire to be antisocial that I'm still denying?
Since the two other people who still seem loyal to this community are both female, I thought it would be appropriate to share a page my boyfriend sent me a while back: "The Guide to Geek Romance"
. It discusses the male geek and his potential as boyfriend material... a good resource to have as we enter HMC, I'd imagine. :-P Gotta love those geeks.

Seeing how distressed muddalicious
is by the fact that no one's writing... I'll go ahead and finally post something, even if only to elicit a couple "hi"s and "welcome"s... not a super exciting conversation starter, but it'll have to do. Hey, everyone! I'm Shelley DeFord, and I've been silently reading this community journal for a while... in the least stalkerish way possible, I promise. I live in Pleasanton, California, which is in the San Francisco bay area. And I've been thinking I'll major in mathematics... or maybe that math/bio major. We'll see.
Sure, let's do a math joke, that's nice and safe and I'm *finally* in an environment where people will appreciate a good math joke instead of rolling their eyes at me. Yay! [My brother, who majored in math at Pomona, told me this one.]
Q: What do you get when you cross a mountain climber with a mosquito?
A: Nothing - you can't cross a scalar with a vector!
Teehee. Yay for us nerds!
Anyway, guess I'll wrap up here. Looking forward to talking to / meeting you all soon! :-)
our little community
What's up with our poor little community? No one really posts on it anymore. I like the people I've met and started talking to from this lj. Everytime someone new joins in, most of us, at least all the ones I've talked to, welcomes the new member. I find it so sweet.
It would be nice if this community doesn't die, and is still rather active. I really like this lj. It's like our own little oasis kinda thing, very similar to Mudd. Current Mood: crushed

Hey everyone. My name's Kenny Quinn, I'll be going to Mudd next year. I've been spying on all your conversations for a while now, but have yet to write anything, so I figured it was finally time to say hello. I'm from San Jose, California. Thinking about being a physics major.
Yeah, I don't really have any questions right now, but since this would be a pretty pathetic post without something said, here's a joke that I think you'll all be able to appreciate:
A bunch of math functions are at a party (we'll say it's a July 4th party, just because the timing works out). Everyone's laughing, having a great time - all except for e^x (e to the x) who is just sitting in the corner, sulking. After a while, x-squared comes over to e^x and says, "hey, what's wrong? Man, you have to go out and have fun, talk with people, laugh - you have to integrate into the party" To which e^x responds "why should I? It won't make any difference"
Heheh, nothing like a good calculus joke to make you feel incredibly nerdy, but that's what makes it so great - I kind of figured that if anyone would be able to enjoy it, it would be Mudders.
Anyways, I look forward to joining in the conversations, and eventually seeing you all in August. Bye! Current Mood: jubilant

Hallo! So I am back from Hong Kong, and now have some question for those who live in the States ~ do they have prepaid cards for cellphones there? And if not, how much to basic cellphone plans cost? Also, do most people our age have cellphones there, anyway (not too familiar)? And is texting the norm? How expensive is it to text and call?
I'm asking this because I live in the Philippines, where everyone, even many 7 year olds, use cellphones. And want to decide whether I will continue to use one at Mudd :P
Thanks for all your help! Current Mood: curious

hey guys, sorry i haven't been posting or playing along much. but now i am going to be annoying and ask a question: does anyone know how/where i can get a plane ticket from way over here (boston area) to Ontario without having to pay an arm and a leg? i've been poking around online for what seems like an eternity and am getting quite frustrated. the small window we have to arrive on campus doesn't make this much easier either. anyone with any suggestions/comments/ideas is my hero. thanks a bunch.

So Jen said that we should start something other than Mudd. So here it goes....
I was watching Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. (Don't know how to spell it) And there was this lady who raised zebra and a donkey, and they mated, and a zonkey came out!!!! It has the shape of a donkey but has stripes. It just seems soo weird to me. The lady, in I think Montero, CA said she came home, and saw them in the act. And then the zebra was pregnant!!! That's just extremely weird to me.
Aren't zebras and donkeys different species of animals? or classes? I don't know what they are. Wouldn't it be like a cat mating with a tiger? Or a rat mating with a possum, or one of those with a kangaroo?
I think it's pretty weird stuff.
no one's probably gonna comment on this. oh well. Current Mood: amused

I came across this site and thought i might as well post something. I am currently attending Mudd and will be a sophomore next year so feel free to ask me any questions you may have about Mudd. If i don't know the answer i will try to find it out.

do me a helpful favor
I'm just filling out the Insurance enrollment form, and well, a whole bunch of instructions are crossed/lined out with black marker. Can anyone check their copy if they have the same thing? It's weird and mysterious :(
I'm leaving for Hong Kong tomorrow, so it's byeee for now! Current Mood: giddy

purpose of this blog?
well, so far it seems this thing has been used as a forum for discussing stuff that's strictly mudd related, aside from one thing that tina posted awhile ago. so while i'm tempted to make a really long post about a conversation i had with a friend (about altruism and the state of society and human nature), i'll just leave you with a link to check it out on my journal, if you're interested. if no one's opposed to it though, i think it would be a good idea to start discussions about things beyond mudd.. but i'll let someone else be the first. meanwhile, if you're interested in the aforementioned conversation, go here: http://www.livejournal.com/users/radioactivepb/

So what username and password are we supposed to use to get into all the forms to fill out online? So far the only thing that I've tried that has gotten any sort of different response was my Odin account, and that was to crash IE. Unless I had the "remember my password" box checked, in which case it just booted me back out like I had picked a wrong password.

Hi everyone! I'm Kevin from AZ, and will be joining all of you this fall. So have you gotten your new packets with all of the info about classes, tests, and workshops yet? Looks kind of intimidating, but at the same time it seems that there's a ton of interesting stuff we'll be able to do. The chip design seminar looks especially neat to me, but it says they're only going to have 6 students do it, so I guess I'll just cross my fingers. What do you think of all this new information?
