Whine Alert: This term is more on the icky side

Dude, this term is not quite as much fun as last term. I am feeling very overwhelmed not just by the amount of work at school, but also from MITRE. I just looked at the homework assignments for systems engineering and accounting. YUCK. That plus I need to stay in all weekend to study for accounting =( I'm also bummed because I had to miss what sounded like a very cool seminar this morning on networking and finding jobs, having to meet with my boss instead.

I would really love to do the normal summer thing and just go party every night, but I suddenly have to act like a grown-up. To counter such feelings, I had two hot dogs and an ice cream sundae for dinner.

As an aside, I am looking forward to Matti's comment on this, which is sure to be about lean studying =)

The summer is what you make of it... If you can get HW out of the way quickly, go read or study other more interesting stuff. I'm done with Crossing the Chasm, Barbarians at the Gate, Microsoft Secrets, and The Business of Software, all four being excellent books. If you'd like to borrow any of them, let me know...

Hmmm. Good point. I think I'll spend today studying accounting hard, then go out tomorrow and enjoy the (nicer) weather.

But you have only at most
3 courses.

I have read some books too.
