Grad Party Today

Alright, grad party today for my friends and family is at Koenig Park. Here is a link to Yahoo maps which should help you in getting there. It is from 2 – 8 and we’ll be grilling out.

An end to school

Well, Justin just left about an hour ago for what would be our last project at the College of Engineering. In less than 6 hours we will be at our graduation. We were both discussing it as we left, and it does not feel like tomorrow is the last day. Feels more like we still have a ton of school work that needs to be done. This has been one hectic senior year with many many many sleepless nights. So long to the College of Engineering at the University of Cincinnati.

I plan to add stuff in the school section still, some interesting projects that I worked on before this blog came around and some things that I just didn’t have time to add. There are some programs that I wrote to help me understand Computer Algorithms better that I plan to put on here to share with others that need help.

Who says this is my last time at school anyways? There’s always the MBA that I plan to start in the next few years after Kristin gets started on hers. That will be the time when teh School section will become current again.

Additional Graduation Party Info

My family is having a graduation party for family and friends on June 12, 2005. The party will be from 2pm – 8pm at Koenig Park in Reading, Ohio. It’s just a drop in party that will have picnic type of food. The party will be for my sister, my cousin, and me.

Graduation Coming Soon

Graduation is coming up soon on June 10th. I still have a lot of projects to complete before then end of the year though. Of course I have the senior design project which I’m working very hard on getting complete, but I also have an Advanced Computer Programming project in java which is very interesting but demanding a lot of time on it’s own. The other project that I have is on for Computer Graphics which involves a dolphin/shark and a bouncy ball that it will play with. Pretty much as the professor puts it, changing the code of a very popular screen saver “Atlantis”.

On the job front, I still have not found a full time job for when I get out of school. I was hoping to hear from my first choice company, SARK, yesterday, but I have not heard a thing. I think at this point I am going to wait until I graduate to start the job hunting again. I really do not have time to go do interviews anymore as my days are pretty filled up with school. Still hoping I get the SARK job though because I was told I would hear something either way, and I have not heard anything.

Another long night

Here I am sitting here at 3:11 AM again with still a lot of school work to do. I’ve spent the entire day up to this point working on it. Only one more week of school left and then finals. This non-stop quarter will finally end then. I just want to mention, that I’m not a fan of CVS at all. Been spending the last while trying to set it up for my senior design project. The next time I have to use versioning software, I’m going to look at some of the alternatives out there, as they cannnot be any worse that CVS.

Procrastinating

Just sitting here trying to concentrate on a paper that I have to right. So much schoolwork to do and not the motivation to do it. Just can’t concentrate on it at all. I’m just wanting this quarter to end so that I can start next quarter and be that much closer to finishing school. I know the next three weeks are going to be even busier for me which is not going to be that great. I already know that I’m going to be spending most of the thanksgiving break doing school work. Back to work I go though.

Crazy time so far

This has been a crazy time so far this quarter. I’m talking about the fall quarter of school this year. It’s just been crazy. I love that I am going to graduate in 2005, but the problem is that some of the classes that I’ve have missed are only offered in the fall. I’m currently taking 17 credit hours of ECECS classes and a 3 credit hour of an ECON class. It’s is really getting to me all the stress and time of all the classes. All of them are upper level so I don’t even have time to eat. This is no joke because Kristin complains that my one meal a day (cause that’s all I have time to spend on eating) is not enough. I don’t know what’s even worse is that I spend more time with my books at the library studying than I do with my own wife. I guess the best way to put it is that I’m getting burnt out rather quick already. I know I need to do all this stuff, but I just haven’t been able to as of late. I just can’t wait until the end of the quarter.
