Three Quarters

I am really in the mood for a good technical blog about programming or some aspect of computer science. However, it seems that given my current state of business it just won’t be happening. I had this great idea that I would share some of the more salient points of recursive programming with you all today, but it will just have to wait. Suffice it to say that recursion is pretty dang cool, and it is absolutely amazing what you can do with it. As a concept it may be slightly challenging to grab at first, but after one spends some time with it, they come to understand how wonderfully simple it can be. Recursion is a very powerful tool, and hopefully someday I will get some time to write up some cool little examples to illustrate it.

Being on week 12 of a 16-week semester, things are really cooking right now. There are assignments due almost every day, and the time commitment seems to have been increased, as each professor tries to cram everything he can into his last four weeks of class. Twelve weeks ago I referred to this experience as a marathon. I am feeling exhausted. It is all I can do right now to try and keep all of the balls in the air. I keep focusing on the reward. I have worked hard, and so far am doing well in these classes. I just need to keep concentrating and putting the effort into learning everything that is placed before me.

Won’t the holiday break be nice? I already have a long list of things that I want to do. Some of it computer related, and some of it just decompress related. But until then… HOMEWORK HOMEWORK HOMEWORK!!!
