After a loooong time I finally have some time to blog! That's because I will be graduating (hopefully) this semester from Cornell University
with my Masters in Computer Science.
As I look back, I would say I made some real good friends and had a blast of a time (though the endless all-nighters didn't help
). It was a mixed experience, initially I took some time to settle down to the new education system the GPA format, but once I was all in, it was a great experience (not grades wise
). I would never forget the all-nighters with some great CS people in the group, putting together some weird system for straight 48 - 72 hours before taking any break. I feel mostly I landed in some of best of the group's..., people wise, otherwise completing work during the usual horrid times would have been a pain.
I can never forget the Meng and 5150 Lab's
... I don't know how many days and nights I have spent there. There were times when I went inside, the weather outside was Sunny and but when came out (God knows after how many hours) it was all blizzardy in the air. I am sure none of my batchmates can ever forget the dear old Upson Hall Basement (I hope they change its wall color) and its super geeky inhabitants, who to my estimation do not take a bath more than once a week
The adjoining, shining new Duffield Hall, where all our group design plans were meticulously made (later to be completely changed), the good old Rhodes Hall where I never saw more than 10 people per floor
. The closeby Collegetown, with College Town Bagels, Peace, Pizzera, Pita Pit, Subway (our mid night munching spots), Ruloffs, Stellas (getting drunk spots), Bear Necessities (gift stop for all cheap Cornell merchandise) and well TOPS the grocery Store, a real life saver. How can I forget the cool looking Statler Hall (la chicas are hot there) where I took the Wine Tasting course (it was some course), Maplewood community center where I have played endless hours of Pool and Ping Pong (Benni, Biz, Chandra, Venkat, Amer, guyz it was just too much fun), the highland apartment D something (where I always found some great free Indian food by master chef Mr. Chandra, assisted by mundu Shaan
), Pyramid and P&C Mall's (well basically for every need), all night open State Dinner, etc, etc ... Ah, well it was all just too cool.
Also, along the way, I met some great people from different parts of the world and made some really great friends and some not so great. I can't imagine having gone through Cornell without these people, they were just awesome. Thanks you guyz!
Well all great things must come to an end, so will my experience at Cornell on the 29th of May, the commencement day. As I have basically nothing to do this summer, I will blog more about Cornell and about all great things I found and did.
