Winter break has been wonderful! It's so nice to see old friends again. It also snowed yesterday. It's pretty nice going to school in California and coming back for break. I get to play in the snow for a few weeks, but I get amazing weather throughout the year at Caltech. Even in December, the sun's shining with highs of 70s. It was a pretty sudden transition coming back and going out with a huge jacket instead of in a t-shirt.
I miss the beautiful campus. I'm not good at photography so you can probably find better pictures on Google. I took tons of pictures, but I'll just put up a pictures that I haven't seen floating around the internet much.
Pretty trees and sunshine :D
Well, I guess there are a lot of pictures of the famous turtle pond around the internet, but it's just too awesome to leave out of this post. I'll include a couple for fun.
Turtles! And fish in the pond :D
It's a pretty big pond with turtles lined around it. Wahhh...I miss the sun!
You've also might've seen pictures of the outside of Millikan Library, but the inside is pretty awesome too.
Omg. These bookshelves are awesome. So at first they're all together to save space. And then you can press a button and the bookselves move to reveal the shelf you want! O:
So cool :D Note that I have not moved during these three pictures.
The view from the library is also amazing.
You can see the city!
The following two pictures are taken from a rooftop:
Palm trees! Welcome to California~
You can see mountain ranges in the distance.The Beckman Institute is a really pretty building with arches and a grove with trees inside. This is a pretty bad picture (I suck at picture taking D:) but here's a picture of the arches.
I think that one of the coolest buildings on campus is Annenberg, the CS building.
The outside of the auditorium is pretty awesome.
Same for the lab!
The 2nd floor.
A closeup of the wall. I spy a beaver!
