Begin Week 11

May 4, 2005 at 5:30pm will be a great time. Of course, there still may be some sorrow associated with the final that I will have just finished, but on the upside, the very glorious upside, I will have earned 16 weeks without school! Not that school is a bad thing, but I am really ready for a break. It has been four years of going to school every semester without a break. Now, for the first time in my academic career, I can take a summer recess and not feel any guilt. All of my generals are done, there are no CS courses offered in the summer, and the math classes I need aren’t being offered either (unless I really wanted to take an accelerated intro to analysis).

It will be nice to go to work, read this pile of books that I would like to read, program for fun, play, and rest. It is so appealing; it will be a fantastic reward for working hard for the next five weeks.

Today was back to work and school, I was a bit surprised when I learned that the website that I built yesterday was actually due TODAY along with some other forms for which our group had to have an actual meeting. I should have paid more attention to the calendar I suppose. Thankfully, everyone was able to pull it together for a lunch meeting where we were able to make the decisions that had to be made. I am glad that I spent some time on the site last night, as doing it today would mean that it looked very much like plain old HTML with out any styling.

Tomorrow I have an exam in Computer Organization; it is going to cover a lot of ground, so studying will be essential. I also have a Linear Algebra assignment due. It seems that if anything I am learning the importance of time management. There is always something else in the queue to get done. Dedication is the name of the game. At any rate, I will keep my eyes on the task at hand, remembering all the while that there is a great reward of rest and fun coming my way in 5 weeks. The time will pass no matter what, so I may as well make it pass well.
