After three semesters, you will have read that much. Those are all papers that I got from the classes; each folder is one class. I will select one random paper per day from each folder and post it here.

If you have google calendar, just click in the "+ Google Calendar" button to add these events to yours calendar.
Disregard the rowing, cedar park elementary school, and 3m events because they are not part of the program.
These are the classes for the last semester (spring 2009); thus, disregard the fact that you see classes scheduled for this month.
Because they scheduled classes in one day OR other day, you can see that many classes have their hours overlapping.
We should confirm our schedule at http://onestop.umn.edu/
To know what books we will need, go to: http://www.bookstores.umn.edu/textbooks/searchbooks.html
Prior to take the class MT 3141 Principles and Applications of Biotechnology Laboratory (before the first Tuesday of the first week of class) , we will have to complete the online safety training modules: Introduction to Research Safety and Chemical Safety at http://www.dehs.umn.edu/training_newlabsafety.htm
We all have to pay the tuition in full (~$4,853 if full-time) before January 24.
Mine didn't spike. :-(
The little secret to make it spike is to put the magnet not too close to the fluid; it works better when the magnet is half an inch away from the solution.
This is what I had to do last week: 5 lab reports, read 2 manuals, revise two essays, write a 6 pages argument essay, two problems sets for nanoelectronics, take-home test for nanoelectronics, 3 reports about companies and conferences I went, take-home test + homework for quality class, 1 paper critique for biotechnology, problems for material science.
I also had to return some books to the county library and renew a book at my school, do laundry, wash dishes, do groceries, prepare food for the week, wash the bathroom (actually I have to do all kinds of unpleasant chores in my home), talk with my family in South America, prepare something to present to the elementary school students, and now I have to fix my car because it just started to make a squealing noise.
That was one week ago; now I have to do many more things.
