I drove up to Oakland after work to hang out with S this evening. It was a gruelling drive, but it was worth it. We drove over to Berkeley (the previous photos were all taken there), ate some pizza and ice cream and walked around campus shooting photos.
This is a photo of Bancroft Library. During my summers at Berkeley, on the rare occasions that I actually spent time studying, I would spend it here. It is a really beautiful, peaceful and quiet library. In Michigan, I would spend most of my study time in labs. What this meant was that my environment was generally pretty loud. I loved (and still do) working in such places. It meant I could yell out for a friend to come over to disucss something. This was usually quite productive and fun. However, there were (and still are) times when I really appreciated a quiet and peaceful work area. It really helps me focus on hard problems.
