Hectic times ahead

Only a few days of my last semester of college are left. Then it’s college exams, submitting the damn journals, demo-ing the damn project and the board oral exams. Which all will take till the end of April. Then it’s almost a month’s break before the board exams. After which I’m home free.

You’d think I’d start being nostalgic about this time, right? To be honest, I neither have the time or the inclination to be anything but frustrated at college. In hindsight, engineering is just not worth it. I should have gone for a pure-science degree: haven’t learned anything new about computers here.

Here’s a piece of advice: don’t expect to learn what you want at college. If like me you want to become a programmer, learn to program yourself. Study math/physics/economics/literature et cetera—any field you have the slightest interest in and which is really useful in life. Seriously.

The one thing I like about Anks. He doesnt have a single cynical bone in his body.

Cynic, n. A blackguard whose faulty vision sees things as they are, not as they ought to be.
