My name is Ellen O'Brien, I hail from Apex, North Carolina, and my major of interest is I know I don't look like it (I've been told I look like I belong in design school), BUT I love math. Like so much that I could do it all day long. Unless I don't understand something. Then I just get angry and avoid the stuff I don't understand like the plague (probably a bad idea). So yes, that is why I chose my major. I also went to a Nuclear Engineering camp two summers ago, and that got me hooked. I'm not sure if I want to do research yet, though. Being stuck in a lab all day doesn't sound like my idea of fun...
Besides the fact that Christmas is awesome and everything related to Christmas (mainly the food) smells amazing, I also appreciate the fact that it is a ridiculously long break. Anddd you have no classes to worry about. Even if exams kicked you butt, at least they're over with. And now you get to stuff your face with pumpking pie and Christmas cookies. That's my favorite part. Christmas is when you can be a fattie and it is perfectly ok. Then New Years rolls around...and those resolutions start looming. Also, the presents. I acutally make word documents with my Christmas lists, links and all. I even have the things I want organized into item type. Pathetic, and slightly bizarre? Yes, but it ensures that I get something I want for Christmas. Because you have no idea how terrible my father is at picking out gifts. (He bought me a pocket knife one year....)
