Architecture is super cool. I had a blast learning how to build different logic gates that performed different Boolean functions. Have you decided your new major yet?

got my degree conferred this week and today i needed to send the final transcript to my new school. i saw that i graduated cum laude and then discovered i was 0.027 points away from magna cum laude---that's gonna grind my gears for a few days at least.

if that A- from this final quarter had been a regular A, i would have gotten it. as a truant in h.s who blew off classes, i never imagined i would ever be so competitive with myself over grades and actually care.

maybe i'll do better in graduate school. kekeke

Being exactly on time and not showing up any earlier or staying any later is perfectly acceptable. They scheduled you for that time for a reason. If anyone expects more of you, you can just tell them to write your schedule in a way that reflects their expectations.

Having different priorities from other people is also fine. You still showed up to the thing you were committed to like you said you would. But your priorities were such that you did other things instead of staying late. That's fine.

What are you taking in school again, Ram?

If it's something you don't give a shit about and are only doing because you're "supposed" to get a degree, do not do it. Don't pay anyone thousands of dollars to learn shit you either don't care about, or do care about, but could easily learn at the library for free with little guidance.

I do think you're somebody who needs structure in his life to keep on track, and school can provide that, but that shouldn't be the only reason you're doing it. You should actually have a goal in mind for your degree, or at least like it. If you haven't figured it out yet, just go back when you have and find another productive way to have an external incentive to not drink and take depression naps all day. Volunteer or some shit.

i'm in my 7th week of school and I have no idea how I am doing but i'm reading and writing tons and working hard. i try to have everything wrapped by friday cause i don't do homework on saturdays and would rather not on sundays.

i still get confused in the middle of some readings about which class it's for since there is a degree of overlap between budgeting and finance, microeconomics, and public policy in general. by the time i get a grip, the quarter will be over.

ten. more. months @_@

i'm not really taking anything right now. i mean my *goal* is basically just get a job that isn't shitty [and maybe make up the sunk cost of my previous schooling (yes i know what sunk cost is, that's why i sort of made a joke phrasing it like that)]. but i don't really even know, cause it's hard to imagine myself getting a real job ever due to my shitty self esteem, or something.

@**** this is week 1, this has absolutely nothing to do with programming and i have no fucking idea why they were asking it. the question was 'what was a time you had poor work ethic and what could you do to fix that'. there were a few coding questions after this
