Here we are again.
Lesse. I've moved into my new apartment, got fish, got cats, got wires hanging from the walls, and I'm done with the quarter. I've no more computer science needed or recommended to take, just 1 GUR class and statistics. And then I'm a free bird.
Over the next quarter I'll be polishing up my resume, sending it off, interviewing, and finding an apartment for myself. It's very important that I get all of these taken care of as soon as possible so there is nothing to worry about come December when the Financial Aid money stops coming in.
Everything always changes. A lot has changed already. There's not very many people up here at Western that I know very well anymore. Almost everyone has moved down to Seattle. It's odd to think that none of us will ever again have the chance to spend time with each other daily doing stupid stuff like going to class, or stressing about an assignment.
I have a lot of things in my plan book besides the obvious "get a job". I'd really like to spend a lot of time this next quarter *making* things. Tye and I have started coding on a game, but it can be hard to stay motivated. We both have the environment up and sprites spinning around, but what to do next? I also find it somewhat difficult to stay motivated working on a game, since it isn't a distinct *need* driving me to want to make it. It's just a general feeling of wanting to make.
I've also been working with the iphone stuff a bit more too. It's really an exciting platform considering the market penetration and average usage.
On a recent note, we made a recursive descent parser with predictive error messages for 401. It's pretty cool. Scheme is a bad language to do it in though - even the professor recommended using set!. Color me unimpressed. On the plus side, I finished it a day early and with all the extra credit. Go me.
Gadget (Brooke's kitty) was sick the last few days. I was really worried about him, but he seems to be feeling somewhat better now, which is good to see.
And I think that's about it. Here's to finishing CS.
