As such, the dorm government documents now officially discuss the state of Destiny -- here's a sample:
Destiny's request for a TV:
redefine to be a request for reimbursement under the microwave payment policy.
Motion to allocate to Destiny half of what they spend on the microwave(up to $75) they bought just before the new microwave policy was put in place, in September.
Discussion: When the policy was passed, it was decided that Destinywould not get reimbursed. Since the money spent on it might well not have been able to be spent on other things...
I didn't think discussions about Destiny purchasing a TV would be an issue until she was a teenager, but MIT has taken care of things for me already. Thanks, Random Hall!
As mentioned before, it's easy to check the status of Destiny's bathrooms, thanks to the MIT bathroom server. Also, Destiny Floor is home of MIT's LEGO robotics lab, and classes are actually taught there.
Soon the Destiny Floor residents will have some pictures of Destiny to hang up. At their request, I mailed a photo-collage of Des, so they have an idea of what their new "mascot" looks like. Random Hall hasn't updated it yet, but their Rush website still calls the floor "Dead" in the maps. I'm sure that'll be fixed by the fall, unless some other change happens first. Hopefully, they'll keep the name 'Destiny' for a long, long time. At least long enough for Destiny to actually understand and appreciate the honor!
heh, that is so nice of you to send the extra money. you'd think MIT would provide a little better for their students though. still, it's cool. and she has a good name for that sorta thing.

Hey-I'm the current webmaster for Random Hall and was just procrastinating on my problem sets by searching google for old Random photos or rush schedules and came across this! Destiny is indeed still called Destiny--all 8 floors now have proud stories as to how they acquired their names. Destiny's current description is here: http://web.mit.edu/random-hall/www/floors.shtml#destiny
