So far, the second semester has been going by a lot faster than the first one. There's not only a lot more social activity this time around (primarily centered around Section 3), but there's also on campus interviews, and the fact that this time around, all the exams will be finals. Oh, and let's not forget that this semester, we have two major writing assignments. Finally, for at least one lucky guy, fatherhood is now another easement on his free time. Congratulations, Adam Sher!
Still, we managed to get some social events going on. The first major event was dinner with Professor Bryan D. Hull at El Cholo, where we learned that Professor Hull is such a big sports fan that he changed his entire career path when the large companies he worked for made demands on his sports-watching time. The career change has redounded to his benefit.
