I have participated in the creating of a snow mound which is capable of holding about one individual. It still needs some work, but by winter's end it should be quite an impressive feat.
During my quest for a hobby a number of activities were suggested. One of these was bird watching. At the time, it didn't really seem like something I would do. Now I have a biology class in which birds are the primary focus, and I bought a set of binoculars today. On monday I will likely purchase several bird identification books. I'm actually pretty excited about this class.
I'm already late on one of my CS142 labs. Just the orientation lab. In my defense, I actually had classes and work during the times we were allowed to come in for the orientation. I have done the part of the lab that can be done without the TAs (everything but the presentation of the orientation and the receiving of the class PIN, which requires a TA password). It will need to be given to a TA to pass off, something I hope to do tomorrow so as to avoid any more late days.
