(Saturday, April 27, 2002)

Brr! It would be nice if the thermometer broke 60 sometime before I graduate. Though a little rain is nice to persuade me to finish my homework, I'd rather to lie in the sun and read poetry.

On Friday, I thoroughly confused (impressed?) my parents at my physics thesis presentation on black hole formation. The wedge graphic on the right shows what a particle does to AdS space. Pretty picture = lots of math.

With a free weekend before my last undergraduate exam period, I am playing endless games of solitaire and listening to the Meters. (Hey Pocky A-Way...) DLicks is playing at the campus dance so I'd better bone up on my second-line. ("Feel good music / I've been told / is good for the body / and good for the soul.")

For most of the world, today is tax day, but today is important for another reason, though: it is physics grad school decision day.

I am happy to announce that I will be going to Harvard next year! I think I'll have a blast living in Cambridge, as opposed to that other school that accepted me in New Jersey. Now if I can only find an apartment that won't cost me an arm and a leg and a couple of gluons, I'll be all set.

The semester is ending nicely. I guess I should be working on my thesis, but I have three weeks before the deadline. If you want to be thoroughly confused, you can come to my thesis presentation on April 26th, but don't say I didn't warn you.

If you'd rather get funky, then DLicks is performing at the Battle of the Bands downtown at the Green Room on Wednesday night. Much more exciting than a black hole and a lot safer, too.
