This place is pretty sweet

Yea so I got to Qatar no problem. My resident hall is fancier than any hotel I've ever been in (my window pane is made out of marble, awesome stone shower, lights and temperature is all touch controlled), people are pretty cool, weather is even hotter than Texas (110 with over 50% humidity????).

 

School also gave me a brand new Thinkpad X230T. It has both a touch screen and pen with wacom pressure support, so this is pretty awesome.

 

My room is equipped with a 40" 1080p 3D TV, been playing burnout paradise with my computer hooked up, that's pretty fun.

 

The drivers in the country are terrible.

 

I'm taking 15 hours this semester. Electrical circuit design, technical writing, statics, some math class, and engineering economics.

 

Think that's it. This semester is gonna be pretty sweet.

Yea they gave me some cash to do it, not bad.

 

It's the TAMUQ campus in Education City. We run the engineering school here, there's a medical school, some liberal arts and stuff each run by separate universities.

How much extra a semester is it to do the study abroad?

They're paying the whole thing. If you get emails for it, I recommend doing it you're practically guaranteed it.

Get ready to be bored out of your mind after a few months. ;)

Luckily I'm only here until December! :P
