Predilections of Doom

Winter quarter of the junior year is supposed to be the most intense of the Bioengineering core. In addition, they are forcing rotating groups this quarter, so instead of being able to rely on tried and true partners, I “get” to try out new partners each week. I’ve had good luck so far — after all, most BioE kids are overachievers — but I know there are a few bad apples out there. Next week alone is looking like sheer death. Two large problem sets, two lab reports, and a midterm (already!).

On top of this, I managed, out of sheer luck, to sign up for two of the most work-intensive CSE classes around — Operating Systems (land of neverending projects) and Software for Embedded Systems (land of neverending labs). Project 0 for OS kept me up all night. Project 1 was two straight days of team coding by three intelligent people. Project 2 is supposed to be the best yet. The first Embedded Systems lab took just 4 hours, the next was 8. I am told that for most of the rest, getting them done in 9 hours is doing very well.

And to top it all off, I am sick. My CSE partner, from whom I presumably contracted the disease, tells me that the worst is yet to come. But hey, its all downhill from here… right?

    I have a nasty head-cold thing right now. Throat is all sore from drainage from my sinuses. I want to curl up in bed and die…but I have lots of TRC stuff to do before Monday. Anyways, I hope you aren’t feeling too much under the gun and try to take it easy.
