Looking forward to 4th year, hockey, and a better week than last
Last week was rough. Starting Tuesday night I couldn't sleep until around 3am each night. Friday night I had played hockey and was so tired, I had nothing left in the tank.
There's been a lot going on in my life, and I think the weight of it all was just starting to pile up. Thankfully, by the end of the weekend I started to feel better, and even though I worked on and off throughout the weekend, I felt rested by Sunday evening. Hockey on Sunday night was great, I tried the Malik move on a breakaway (unsuccessfully), and had plenty of fun and boosted the endorphin meter at the same time.
Today I got good news on a couple of fronts, one being Cheryl's job, the other being hockey-related...
I've been accepted onto a recreational team for this season in the Island Hockey 101 league. When I started playing hockey in February, this was my goal... improve to the point where I could play in that league in September. I think I have, and am looking forward to it so much!
Unfortunately my hockey pants got ruined in the washing machine today, they got caught in something and were totally trashed. Tomorrow morning I'll go buy some new pants, and get my textbooks for this fall.
Speaking of this fall, this upcoming term is going to be fan-freaking-tastic. I'm taking 3 courses I've been looking forward to forever:
UVic Course: CSC 305 Introduction to Computer Graphics
UVic Course: CSC 435 Compiler Construction
UVic Course: CSC 450 Computer Communications and Networks
In the Spring I'm taking these 3 courses, and one more TBD:
UVic Course: CSC 462 Distributed Computing
UVic Course: CSC 464 Concurrency
UVic Course: ENGR 240 Technical Writing
I've been putting off ENGR 240 for many years, but I'll have to take it in the Spring or no graduation for me! :-)
Here are some courses I'm considering for my 4th and final Spring course...
CSC 483A: Topics in Programming Methodology: "Software Configuration Management" (no link yet)
UVic Course: SENG 310 Human Computer Interaction
UVic Course: CSC 461 Multimedia Systems
UVic Course: CSC 445 Operations Research: Linear Programming
It's been suggested I take an "easy course" rather than another senior CS/SENG course, since I'm already taking 5 senior CS courses this year and I only need to take a couple, but I haven't found anything easy AND interesting yet.
