I didn’t care about this before, but now that I’m on the cusp of leaving my undergraduate degree (last hurdle tomorrow) I realize just how AWESOME the open courseware that MIT offers is.

I can finally get a semi-proper foundation in linguistics! And … all that other stuff I always wanted to learn about. Cryptography. Economics. Anthropology. Maybe I’ll finally understand what political science is all about. Psychology. Cognitive sciences. Classical studies?!

Plus stuff that’s more relevant to my degree: Materials science. Chemical engineering.

This place is a goldmine.

This is proof-positive, my friends, that life is WAAAAY better as a musical:

Yes, it’s “Dr. Horrible“, which I’ve been harping on about to anyone who will listen for the last few days.

So… I actually have a costume for Hallowe’en this year. I don’t think I’ve had a proper Hallowe’en costume for a really, really long time. I had a blast making it, actually, and have resolved for the 7465384th time that I will learn how to sew my own clothes.

In fact, this Hallowe’en costume is almost a cosplay, since I’m dressing up as a video game character. And because of that, it’s incredibly nerdy; I’m okay with that, though. 🙂 Working with a bunch of science geeks does tend to have that effect on you.

I think a couple of the other students at work are coming dressed up, so there are definitely going to be some group shots there. 😀
