Answering Your Questions (Blogathon 20/49)

Michaelyn here!

If you have any questions for me, go here!

Sarah asks: Does JT snore? He totally does, I bet.

Yes, but it’s not loud. It’s kind of a cute, quiet snore usually. Although when he’s completely exhausted, he can get loud.

Cara asked: What went through your head the very first time you saw JT?

Well, honestly the very first time I saw him I thought, “This is weird,” because I already knew who he was. I had read his blog and we had a lot of mutual friends on Facebook, so I saw his name a lot. It was kind of weird to have him introduce himself when I already knew his name. Fun fact: the day we met, he got my phone number when he did a card trick and texted me a prediction of what 4 cards I would have in front of me. Pretty smooth.

sarahm said: Tell us about your major or about your school.

I attend the University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS. We’re the Jayhawks, and I pretty much love my school. My major is physics. I’ll graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in two years. My major involves a lot of math which I enjoy, and I’m just getting into the interesting part. The first couple of physics courses I had to take involved basic setups with inclined planes, ignoring air resistance and neglecting friction. They mainly annoyed me. But this past semester I got to take Modern Physics where we studied relativity and got a small intro to quantum mechanics. This course was really difficult, but I really enjoyed the topics.

This is post 20 of 49 for Blogathon.

Total donors is at 241 (if we hit 300, campers get to pie us in the face)! That link also has some other ideas for pledging for Blogathon. :)

You can still donate to the SSA by supporting other blogathoners, art contributors, personal fundraising pages or through a direct donation to the SSA! SSA Week lasts through June 17th. Spread the word!

You guys are wonderful.

    Is Marfatia still teaching Physics III? Is he still the sexist prick he was 5 years ago (told another KU Physics major she should drop out because girls can’t do physics)?

      Woah, no, not that I know of. That name doesn’t sound familiar. I had KC Kong in Physics III. If someone told me girls couldn’t do physics, the world would know.
