I passed!

September 21st, 2009 by liz

I passed my prelims! After 4 weeks of studying physics that I’d forgotten years ago, I’m finally done. The oral exams were interesting–I totally rocked the classical exam, but barely passed the modern exam. I was amused by this because at MIT I spent 3 semesters on quantum and 1 day on lagrangians. In any case, it’s over now and I can get back to lab, which is good since I have quite a few measurements to do before I leave for pole in 6.5 weeks. I also have a bunch of travel planned to visit people before I leave, which will be fun!

Speaking of which, Boulderites–I’m going to be in Boulder from Oct. 2-6 (Friday night through Tuesday mid-day). Hiking? Biking? Climbing? Picnics? You guys should show me all of the awesomeness of Colorado. I’ll also be in Vermont from Oct. 16-20 (Friday night through Tuesday midday). If anyone is going to be around, call me!
