From A to B

I went to TA office hours for both of my CS classes today. When I greeted one of the TA’s this morning I asked him how he was doing.

Response: “I’m a… really just shooting from the hip today. Ima’ day late and a dollar short.”

That pretty much sums up my first office hours experience of the day. Sometimes I forget that the TA’s have just as much work, if not more than I have. Not only do they have to take care of students in the classes they TA for, but they also have to do their own homework. It was a bit frustrating though not being able to count on the TA for sound advice with regard to the current homework assignment.

Just in case you were wondering, yes, it is a challenge. The C++ syntax is coming along; at least that part of the battle isn’t as bad as last week. However, the assignment is just crazy. I think that it was an exercise in how to get to point B from point A by passing through point Z first.

Maybe I will finish it tomorrow. I really need to work on Linear Algebra, it has been far too neglected.
