This evening was Third Degree for ΚΚΨ.  We have six new Brothers now.  Amongst everything else that's been going on in my life, I was glad that something so positive was scheduled to occur.  I helped read part of the ceremony, which was a nice change of pace for me.  A good time was had by all.

Sadly, not everything can go perfectly.  Those of us who were reading had a brief run-through rehearsal this afternoon, and I walked all the way up to the band room in Trees Hall only to find out that we were meeting in the Cathedral of Learning.  Thankfully, there was a shuttle waiting to take me back down just as I left the building.

As a consequence of being late, I was a little bit rushed to get to my evening class, Fundamentals of Nuclear Reactors, for my exam.  Fortunately, the exam itself was about as simple as I could have expected it to be, and the professor even said it was because he didn't want to spend hours upon hours grading everything.  So it was one of those, "put your answers in the blanks, and if it's wrong, then I'll check your work"-type exams.  And it wasn't bad.

I have my ChE 0401 presentation tomorrow morning.  Sadly, though, our ChE 0401 report isn't coming together as well as I'd like it to, but it's out of my hands.  I had assumed that since we've all done this at least three times before, everyone would know how to communicate with their team members.  Unfortunately, though this is true for most of my teammates, it is not true for all of them.  And I regret that I dropped the ball as far as emphasizing strong communication from day one, and now it's irreparable.  But it's also over after tomorrow.  So that's fortunate.

And that's about all that's going on here... I will post about Tuesday's troubles at some point, but I have an OChem report to do tomorrow night, so it might not be until late Friday.  But it is important.  Just know that everything's already much better.  Thanks for your concern.

That's exciting that you guys have initiations in both the spring and fall. Here, they don't get initiated for like another three weeks or something.
