Done, but not well done

April 30, 2008 – 10:10 am

This has been one of the strangest mix of emotions I’ve had to deal with in a long time…

I finished semester two of grad school yesterday but probably failed the AI final which is extremely frustrating[0]. On the other hand I found out we had received a small grant to get some hardware to pet our project idea off the ground which has me super excited and terrified all at once. I’m used to Tech giving me either a really crappy week or an awesome one, this mixed bag makes things much more difficult.

Oh well, now it’s time to support the girlfriend as she stresses out through her finals and get ready for my trip to Palo Alto[1].

Have a good summer folks.

[0] It’s frustrating because I looked through it before I started and thought “Oh, wow, this isn’t too bad.” Then as I started to go through it a few of the easier questions threw me off pace and there was a lot of “I know how to do this… so why can’t I?” In the end I left one question blank (expected going in) and only completely answered one question with the rest (8) in various states of incompleteness. This is a testament to the power of letting yourself get psyched out by a test.

[1] This move is going to be super busy—I have to move out of my current apartment, buy a few new clothes, get started on business hacking/planning, find a bike to ride when I get out there, and somehow try to relax since that’s what this time after finals is supposed to be about…
