Off to a Spring Break.
I am thinking passing by Chicago and landing in at Boston and then training out to Providence for the spring break. Please don’t my deliberate usage of inconsistent verbs, it is just that I am too excited about the whole idea of a ‘break’.
The seminar @ Providence is organized by Institute of International Education for Fulbright scholars in United States from all over the world. Yours truly being one of them was assigned to a team which is supposed to create and pitch a social enterprise about improving Education system in the world and yes as you may have guessed the seminar is themed about Social Enterprises.
Anyway, the other new thing about this trip is that I’ll be couchsurfing at Chicago and Boston at people’s places – people I have only come across through this website and never met – yes as weird it may sound, I have had a prior experience just like this at New York for a night and it was GREAT. This time I am trying it for longer times and can’t wait to meet my couch-buddies!
On the academic front, I have been indulged into hacking ns-2 for quite a while. It is a pain yet an interesting learning experience, we are supposed to be submitting a paper whose deadline is right on our head but let’s see how THAT goes given my spring break. To be honest, this time I have promised myself that I’ll do this deed during the break, I have been bad at this before, let’s see how it goes!
Umm, that’s about it. What’s new at your end?
