I’ve completed all my requirements for three of my subjects this semester. I’m praying that the effort I put in for these subjects (however little) will be enough to secure a passing grade for all of them. I hope that everything turns out alright and I won’t have to repeat them.
I thought I’d share some pictures and memories I have from these classes, to give me a feeling of closure.
MSE 225: X-Ray Crystallography and Spectrography
My earliest subject to finish this semester. We had our final exam just last week.
Our class met every Saturday this semester (except for those days when our professor was too busy to hold classes, or fell asleep in his office). We tackled one chapter of the book each week, and a problem set was assigned at the end of each class. This meant that for almost every Friday this semester, my classmates and I stayed up all night answering problems dealing with x-rays, crystal lattices and their symmetries.
Amie and I stayed up on Fridays together at my apartment to solve the problems for class. Towards the middle of the semester, the Calamba sisters (Kat and Ate Love) started joining us, which made things a whole lot easier since there were more of us. Although there were some days when we only managed to submit two problems each because we stayed up chatting all night instead of answering the problem set 😄
This was taken right after Ate Love’s birthday. We had a pizza for dinner that night, her treat. Thanks Ate Love!
(Ate Love and I are actually the same age, she’s just a few months older than I am. I just got used to calling her “Ate” because of Kat, hehehe)
Sometimes Ezra would come and stay with me at my apartment (when she didn’t have to work) so I’d have some company. On Friday nights she’s in charge of making sure we all don’t fall asleep while studying. (She spends the entire Friday morning asleep while I’m in class, so she’s all energized in the evening.)

Ezra put Miaka-style buns on me
Looking so happy. She enjoys watching us suffer 😄
Sometimes Hahriz would also spend Friday night with us. She usually does this when she has an early Saturday exam.
(Yes, my place is always a mess when Friday night comes around. Luckily no one really cares as long as we can find a place to study. We clean up on Saturday mornings after our class, before heading back to LB.)
