After School

Filed under: General — espeed @ 6:21 pm — Tags:

Contrary to what the title may make you think, this post isn’t about cheesy G rated movies on ABC which you might have watched during a better more simple time.  It’s about my plans post school.  That golden time when I get to join the work force and become a productive member of society.

In this case, not this society, but Japan’s.  That’s right, I’ve decided to go to back to Square Enix to work full time after school.

This was a tricky decision which took a lot of soul searching to arrive out.  In the end, SE has a vision and a mission which is simply more exciting than the other places I looked at.   

It will take a bit for me to get my visa after a graduate so I’m still up in the air about what I’ll do for the summer.  I’ve applied to MITES but besides that it’s up in the air.

If I don’t get to do that, I’ll just chill in Kansas doing nothing, or maybe fun projects or possibly anything at all.

First, I have to graduate. 😛

My current classes

So, I’ve been pretty bad about posting but I don’t really care because I have plenty of other things to do when I’m not posting.

A lot of times when I post, I just talk about everything since the last time I posted, which is in general not the optimal way to post. Post get long and have all sorts of different topics. What’s the point of having categories if every post has all of them.

So this post will be about my classes. I only have 4 classes which is the smallest number of classes I’ve had since the forced credit limit my first semester at MIT. It’s actually pretty nice not having to do work every second of the day. Even so, it always seems like I’m rushing to finish things, but I write that off to inefficient use of time.

Now for my classes:

Sunrise, Sunset (FA07 Post Mortem)

Filed under: Uncategorized — espeed @ 4:23 am — Tags:

So, I was having a blast writing all sorts of colorful prose for this post and then realized that long posts are crappy mcCrapCrap, and this is my attempt to improve upon that.

My semester is over.  It is again best described as mediocre in terms of results, which seems to compound my growing belief that I can’t cheat time.  Here’s a list:

  1. Secret to School:  Always attend classes, ALWAYS.
  2. Grades are a poor measure of understanding due to their arbitrary nature.
  3. Thus a Corollary to 1: Become friends with the people who assign grades.
  4. 5 classes + 3 jobs + 2 extracurriculars == A not sustainable schedule.
  5. Patrick H. Winston is a good person and a great teacher.
  6. I like coding quite a lot.
  7. Square-Enix?  I still have hope.

So, it was still a lot of lines, but concise, and not as full of my usually verbose pageantry.

General December Update

Well, it’s been slightly more than a month since I last posted and sadly the reason isn’t that I have little to say just that I have so little time to say it.  I keep a list of things to blog about but I never get around to the interesting things because I’m just trying to talk about the less interesting things which make up the majority of my life.  So, in the interest of that, here’s a recap.

The future is now

So this post is a long time coming and I apologize for not writing more, but to be honest I’m always extremely busy, and never really have enough time to do anything.  The topic of this post will be the future, and how I’m preparing for it.  Topics include, The changing of my major, and job prospects.
