The semester’s coming to a close and I’ve been spending a lot of time just hanging out with friends here. I don’t really have toooo much to do, but they’ve got exams. 🙂 Two of them aren’t in 4 stream co-op so it’s going to a long while before I see them again. One of them is actually applying to go to a medical school in Ireland so this may be one of the last times I’ll ever see him here at this school. While I didn’t think I’d make such good friends in the short while (well, it’s been almost 8 months now I guess), it’s going to be weird to say goodbye to these guys, at least for the time being. I’m sure there’ll be lots of visiting down the road, so it won’t be too big of a deal. That’s the great thing about living so nearby. (Well, the Golden Horseshoe’s what I consider nearby.)
I also got some response back from my PDEng mentor regarding my work term report. You see, I read the Electrical and Computer Engineering work term report requirements, and I thought that my idea, which I had labored and worried over, was going to be bust. This quite naturally had me quite shaken up. I decided to ask for the advice of some upper year students as I have absolutely no idea what is really expected out of a first term work report. I just finished up writing a response email stating my idea in detail and hopefully I’ll get some sort of indication as to whether it would even satisfy the requirements. It’s one thing for a work report to be difficult. It’s totally another to get it rejected because it doesn’t satisfy the requirements. The last thing I need is to fail my first work report.
So all you kids with exams thinking I’ve got it easy… Well, I’ve got a nice 20-30 page technical report to write to make up for it. 😉 Hope you guys are doing well through exams. In some sick way, I sort of miss this adrenaline pumping, material scramming time of of the school year.
