It’s been 198 days since I last blogged. I didn’t mean to slack off that badly again, honest!
Okay, the truth is that the last six months have been just as crazy as last fall, if not more so. While I probably could have tested out of one of my classes, two others proved to be quite challenging, each in their own ways. The fourth class was a bit more challenging than I expected, as well. Apparently, C++ has evolved in the sixteen years since I last touched it. Who knew?
But I persevered, and actually did better than I expected, which is always nice. Also, it made for two semesters in a row where I did quite well.
So, of course, I’m endangering that winning streak by taking a required math class this summer. It’s that class and the continued part-time job (which is currently at around 33-35 hours a week) that are keeping me busy this summer. On the bright side, taking the math class during the summer keeps it from sucking time away from other classes, something that happened more than once in a previous college career.
There have been one or two non-academic highlights this year, though. In March, my friend Dan and I went to New York City for a few days, an adventure that I really should write up as a post on here soon. Next weekend (July 23rd and 24th), I’ll be continuing my trend of going to one web-related conference-type event a year, this time going to WordCamp Boston 2011. I’d also love to visit New York City again this fall, but there may not be time for it, especially in the first half of the semester.
Now let’s see if I can blog again sooner than 198 days from now…
