Summer term is officially underway at MIT. I really enjoyed my first term. Even ERBA had strong points to it: the homework (and impossibility thereof) helped me to get to know and greatly respect many of my classmates and the chats were always good for a laugh (and for getting me busted for laughing). I didn't really like Tech Strategy either, but at least I had a good partner in John Hajdiwuesdfsasdfasdf and there were only six sessions. I really liked my Apollo and Innovation in Marketing classes.
I'm nervous for this semester; so far, it's shaping up to be quite dry. Our accounting professor has a good sense of humor, but I found myself struggling to pay attention after the first half hour. I loved the reading for Systems Engineering and learned quite a bit about myself from it, but the lecture had me on the train to Snoozeville.
I am also printing out the reading for the Systems Engineering. It is making a HUGE stack at the printer here. Many of them are scanned-in pages converted to PDF. YUCK. As for accounting, I like the book with it's easily-scannable bold-faced keywords, but this book is long as well. Anybody know where I can score some Ritalin? ;)
I'm hoping that the second lecture in each course will jump start the courses. In the meantime, I have opted out of Systems Dynamics and Operations Management in order to enjoy the summer a little bit.
