Merry Christmas, fellow Bandits! I'm actually kinda shocked this place is still alive. I hope y'all had a good Christmas and received plenty of free gifties!

A belated Merry Christmas to you all! I was on a cruise with my family for the past week and spent Christmas zip-lining and swimming in caves in Mexico.

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year! I hope everyone's 2016 is off to a solid start. This semester, I've started studying my areas of study, journalism and creative writing, and have never felt so enthusiastic about waking up and going to class -- although perhaps that's because none of my classes start before noon.

How is second semester going for y'all?

Super belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!
Since this seems to have turned into a life update thread, here's mine in order of how much I freaked out.

Last semester was my hardest semester by far and is likely to hold that rank until I graduate.  Mistakes were made, tears were shed, panic attacks were had, but I fucking passed and I'm moving on.

The professor I research with invited me to be a teaching assistant for the course she's heading this semester, so I do that now.  I lead a discussion of ~30 students once a week, hold office hours, etc.  Lots of fun and looks fantastic on a resume, since it's a very important class in my major.

Last but not least, I have a software engineering internship at Google for summer 2016.

Life's fucking stressful.  Kick its ass, guys.

I'm actually starting my second semester tomorrow. My school does a thing in January where you only take one class for three weeks - my class was on the English Civil Wars. It's honestly a really fun time since the professors get to focus on their area of expertise, the classes are capped at 15 students, and you only spend around 3 hours a day in class. Also, the professor I had is leading my school's program in Strasbourg, France next year so I'm definitely considering a semester abroad for my second semester of Sophomore year.

I'll be working out in New Mexico again for the summer. I'm really excited for it but unfortunately it will most likely be my last summer since I'll need to start doing internships to get experience for a "real" job in the future.

Thanks, Swallow! Glad to see you on the forums.

TAing is (unsurprisingly) stressful and a decent amount of work but it keeps my understanding of the material up to snuff and has made me several friends, both students in the course and other staff members. Also, a group of TAs agreed to be a group for our senior project next year--we're stupid, so we're taking one of the most difficult courses available, but it's a continuation of the one we TA for and I figure the five of us are a borderline unfair team so we should be fine.

As for Google--I start at the end of May and I'm still trying to finalize housing in San Francisco. Finding housing in the bay area is not a fun process.

This ended up being a bit longer than intended, so to cover up my inability to stay on topic, let's treat this as a life update thread again!
BUMP

Kai, how selective is that internship? It sounds like a spectacular opportunity. I can't help but think of the Internship movie and thinking that you are actually a genius haha.

It's hard to answer that, honestly, especially since I don't want it to sound like I'm bragging. It is highly selective, but it didn't feel like I did that much work to get the position. I had two very technical interviews, and then I basically just waited. I guess since I only really spent 2-3 hours trying to get the position, it felt like I didn't do much to earn it. Personally, I assumed I would get rejected--the last couple years have basically given me Imposter Syndrome and I have to consciously remind myself that I do know what I'm doing.

I have a handful of friends who are also working at Google/other major tech companies this summer, and we all have a few things in common. Every one of us is in a somewhat selective honor society, has a TA position, and/or has research experience, so it looks like companies either look for that in applicants or at the very least, those are indicators of good candidates.

I'm hoping to use this summer as a stepping stone to a full time position next year.

Also, I love that movie! It has almost nothing in common with what an internship at Google is supposedly like, but it's still one of my favorites.

As has already been determined, Kai is, in fact, a genius. You ain't gotta hide it boi -- bragging's one thing, but when you land a nice fuckin gig you got every right to be excited about it. Congrats man!

Motherfucking GOOGLE!

Believe me, I'm thrilled about it! Wouldn't go so far as to claim I'm a genius, though.

Typical genius response, tbh.

Same here! I check the forums every now and then, but if y'all wanna hit me up with some IRL social media, I'm game. Don't be shocked I don't go by my middle name IRL though.
