the longest week ever

On Saturday, I had to take an exam. Scored 96 out of 100. w00t!
I knew I had another exam in another class that following Wednesday, but I was ready for it.
I didn’t know that the upcoming third exam in yet another class was that following Thursday until the Tuesday before. Ouch.

the object dot methods

Learning computer programming is essentially learning foreign languages.
Traffic was terrible in Austin yesterday. I spent over an hour on the road traveling from North Austin to Downtown. When the rain falls, many Austin drivers become too cautious. I’m a cautious driver myself, but I am able to maintain a reasonable speed limit even in unfavorable […]

The escalated stress level was kept dismissed for weeks and then absorbed like a life force of its own right about […]

the expected personalized interlude

Here’s another obligatory update. I’ve been keeping these rants short, because I have bigger fish to fry. If you’re into pattern detection, then you know exactly why I still sprinkle this collection with first-person prose that reflects something or another that might be relevant to the big picture or not. June flew by. To 100-degree […]
