Besides our classes, quite soon after arriving we all got into business attire and had our group and individual photos taken. These will be used in promotional materials, will be hung on the wall of our program office and will also be printed along with our resumes in a class photo/info book available to staff as well as partner companies. We had to look good. So, while we all were so snazzy looking, I had someone snap a couple of our team. Here they are:
|Team Seven looking like we're the group you'd like to hire...|
|And Team 7 being Goofy (we're all doing a 7 with our hands in some way or another...at least we're trying to)|
On our way to being awesome, we've got to do some work though, so today I got a candid of us working on some of our problem sets (I think we're just wrapping up). Assignments have finally started to come due this week so now we're getting more into the swing of things. The LGO office is great in that they have small breakout/group study rooms with big monitors (if you want to share what's on your computer) and whiteboards to scribble on. This is a photo of us in one of those rooms.

Tonight, after some of us stuck around the office to do work individually, we had a spontaneous dinner outing with half the team tonight (Team 1/2? Team 3/6?). We went to explore a few places close to but not right at campus. We had Middle Eastern food for dinner and then grabbed bubble tea at a place next door. Bubble tea is an Asian drink often served cold (milk and tea or just tea, often flavored) with tapioca balls (bubbles) in it. You drink it through a giant straw so you can suck up the bubbles at the same time. It's kind of odd, but rather tasty and fun to do every once in a while. These were two places I had not been to when I was at MIT before, so it was fun to continue exploring.
