The Struggle

It is good that things in life keep us humble, and remind us how little we know. The computer science assignment that I spent last night and a great deal of this afternoon working on proved to be much more difficult than I had anticipated. The professor said that “it is a short assignment, and shouldn’t take you too long to finish”. Boy, did I ever struggle with it. Thank goodness for some good classmates, and instant messenger. We all worked together, and pushed each other on to complete the assignment.

I know that I often tell you how quickly the semester is going to end, I probably keep reminding you of it as a reminder to myself that I just have to keep pushing for a couple of more weeks. I just need to take a deep breath, and attack it one task at a time.

Between now and Monday, I need to spend some serious time with both ODE’s and Discrete Math. Thankfully, I have finished the CS assignment.

On another note, I recently found Barber’s Adagio for Strings, op.11. What a beautiful piece of music. It is so full of emotion and feeling, with such a powerful past. I can just close my eyes and let my soul vibrate to the feelings roused by this powerful piece. I think that right now, it could be a soundtrack for my life. It is not every day I find something to which I can resonate so well.
