State of the Term Spring '11

April 21st, 2011

Exactly 36 days remain until the end of this semester. As far as the semester goes, I’m over it and am just focused on the finish line.

It’s grind time.

I'm a winner

March 1st, 2011

I recently gave an oral presentation of my senior design research for a campus wide student research day, and won for my category (Computer Science). It’s kind of a big deal to me. Participants in my category even included two graduate students, so I’m definitely feeling a huge since of accomplishment at the moment. It’s actually the second time I’ve given the presentation, the first being for my senior design class. But being judged by complete strangers made the since of accomplishment feel more legit. There’s actually a chance that I’ll be chosen to represent my campus at the statewide CSU research competition –  we’ll see though. Regardless, I’m good as it stands.

Rest, Finally...

Simply put – the term is over and it ended well.  Relatedly, this summer will be the first term I haven’t been enrolled in classes since 2003 (summers included).  Needless to say, this break is long overdue.

Are You Serious...

This post is kind of late, but who cares.  It was the first day of Calc II class and as with any first day the usual proceedings began to take place.

  1. professor states the syllabus isn’t ready (2 weeks later, it’s still not ready)
  2. professor ask, who wants to add
  3. review…
  4. 15min late group shows up
  5. lecture
  6. 10min before class ends lady strolls in w/her kid in a stroller and takes a seat (WTF)

Look, I totally understand people have responsibilities, but bringing your crumb-snatcher to class isn’t cool.  The kid didn’t make much verbal noise, but apparently didn’t now how to sit still. Needless to say, I had a look of shock and disgust on my face.
