The Secret Tunnels Under UT

NEW: Second video link added to the bottom 12/15

Haha... two secret posts in a row. I have a mental list of stories I want to write here, and somehow this one had slipped off of it. Luckily, a UT Grad who goes by "The Reel Deal" posted a comment reminding me about the story. So here it goes, with a little history first.

I never thought I'd go to UT (The University of Texas, not Tennessee). Ever since I was in middle school, I always knew that I'd go to MIT - it was where the smart geeky people went, and I was one of them. When it came time to do applications for schools, I mailed two of them. One for MIT and one for WPI, a lesser known technical school in Massachusetts. I had abysmal grades, due in a large part to my refusal to do most homework and having never actually studied for a test. I always thought it was interesting to see how much of the material I'd naturally retained. Let's just say it usually wasn't over 80%.

Three Day Challenge Report

On Huan M. Nguyen

Wednesday September 25, 2013

Good day for the challenge. I began a tracking habit, that I think will bring good gains and help me to keep on track and be more productive. It's given me a boost of motivation for today, that's a good sign. What it looks like:

Just looking at this, I know I spent 1 out of 5+ hours I know that I had free time on campus studying. Some of it was spent on eating, and things went well there. The tracking also gave me a motivational push to do some meditation today.

Going forward, I think this will be a useful tool.
