Back over spring break, I mentioned that I was working on a project involving penguins, and I might post about it soon. Well, it’s only three months later and I’m finally getting around to posting about it. [I know I also said I’d write about spring semester, but then I remembered I spent most of spring semester doing problem sets. The past sentence just about sums things up and I’m counting it as “writing about spring semester.”]
Anyway, first off, here are the penguins, who are named after the members of the Fellowship of the Ring from The Lord of the Rings:
They have adventures around campus like visiting the AD White statue on the arts quad,
and rooting for the Big Red.
I started the project just for fun and also to take a look at things from a different perspective. Campus looks different to a two-inch penguin.
In other news, I’m back at Cornell working on my summer project. Summer has defiintely finally arrived in Ithaca, complete with thunderstorms a few nights a week and 90% humidity. It’s still been nice, and the penguins seem to be holding up just fine in the heat.
