A really long week, and a long description of the week

This past week was fairly eventful. Not so many exciting events, mostly just me doing work. I spent a fair amount of Monday working on my ECE 309 homework along with my 8.5 hours of class and labs. Of course I finished very little of it, so I spent a total of 9 hours on the homework set on Tuesday (10 problems). I also spent time on my ECE 333 project of writing a MIPS processor simulator in MIPS assembly language. After a grueling 5 hours straight of homework Tuesday night with Ashley, Wednesday was filled with much more work. Physics homework, more ECE 333 project, and Algorithms homework. Wednesday also brought disappointment, because in ECE 309 we are given no partial credit on homework, so if you miss 1 part of a 5 part problem then the whole problem is wrong. Most questions are 2-3 part problems requiring about 45 min each. I missed an opportunity to play water basketball with Jennifer Wednesday night as well. Thursday consisted of more Physics homework and then another several hours on the 333 project, forcing me to miss my dinner at Pi Lam. I ran out of food this week as well. Wednesday I finished off all of my cheese, Thursday and Friday’s lunch consisted to some left-over hamburger buns I found. Luckily my parents brought up some food when they came for the Homecoming game this weekend.
Friday was a bit relaxing, just classes, no homework or anything; turned in my 333 project. After that I drove two 1st years to JMU. I got back in just in time to make it to Friday meals at the Pi Lam, and then drive directly to GCF (Grace Christian Fellowship) for the weekly large group meeting. I didn’t go out Friday night; I cleaned up a little bit and went though my financial records checking everything. I managed to get up early to get breakfast at Pi Lam Saturday morning and hear the Alumni talk about their past experiences as brothers of Pi Lam. It was definitely an interesting look into where we were and how far we have come as a society. I met my parents back here and we visited Jennifer at her Chem-E cookout. They had tons of decent food, then I brought my parents back to the Pi Lam house to chill out with the rest of the old people there. The game was not very interesting, UVa didn’t play well but we still beak Akron. Saturday night consisted of my watching Pink Floyd – The Wall twice and Dark Side of Oz twice with Jennifer. I then got up early this morning (Sunday) to pick up the people I brought to JMU and went to my usual Sunday meetings. This week there are no projects or test, so it should be a little less intense.
I received an offer to rework the DKE (a fraternity) website to make it interactive. This could be my second paid website consulting job. Engineering Internship fair is this week as well. I will be polishing up my website and resume the next few days to make a solid impression on the companies coming to visit.
Also, Thursday was Courtney’s birthday. 18 years now, she is legal. There are a few pics from her little celebration dinner to the right. Have fun being able to sign your own name now, Courtney. There was a pretty disgusting thing done in the bathroom today as well. Check it out in the Crazy section of Hump2Right if you dare. I won’t put it on the page because I want people to no puke while reading this.

UVa Football, classes, weekend, and water football

So today, stuff happened. Classes are fully underway now. Projects have been assigned as well as non-trivial homework. Luckily today, I spent very little time studying, meaning more for tomorrow. Pi Lam rush started this weekend, it should be pretty fun considering this is informal rush and there isn’t as much pressure and time-commitment involved. There is a date function thing on Thursday, I don’t know what I’m going to do about that, but I’m sure it will be fun. My hard course ECE 309, is going to be similar in difficult to ECE 304; I had last semester. But, this isn’t a bad thing, because I think that Prof. Barker is going to be a good professor. I don’t know if he will be as good as Prof. Wilson, but not far off. I’m looking forward to a semester for lots of learning. I am taking no Arts and Crafts courses; all E-School, all technical.
This weekend was pretty laid back. Friday consisted for me taking my hall to “Friday’s after Five” on the Downtown Mall, then Rush, then coverage. Saturday, I woke up late, then relaxed most of the day. My parents came up for the football game, I went and tailgated with them. Lots of fun and free food. And YAY UVa Football for a fantastic game and a victory over the Cocks. Sunday consisted of meetings and more relaxing (no homework). Today was a full day of classes for me to sleep through, followed up by an exciting game of water basketball. Jennifer, Kelly, Fabs, Stan, Dan, and I played three games of water basketball to determine the World basketball champions. I made Stan look real dumb, for I am one amazing water basketball player. I also managed to knock out a few of Kelly’s teeth, as well as drown her, and kick her in the stomach. I was able to successfully pick Jennifer up and toss her out of my way whenever necessary, to lead to my team’s victory.
The semester moves on… I have a lot of web design to be doing. The ECE site should be finished soon, then more updates on mine. The Angle wants some enhancements to that site, but it is in ASP which I haven’t done in quite a while; so that will be torture. Boo Microsoft. I also have web work to be done on the Pi Lam site as well. Well to bed for me. AND, basically… YOU ARE HOT ! !

1 week of school down. It’s starting again . . .

So the first week of school is over. All of my classes are getting underway. It looks like it’s going to be a tough semester. Electromagnetics (ECE 309) and Signals and Systems (ECE 323) are going to be my hardest courses. I plan on staying on top of my game and getting my homework done early and reading all my books. If I work hard for a good part of each day, I think I can pull it off and have evenings to relax. I didn’t go running today, but I will make up for that tomorrow. We had our first MSuG meeting today; I will continue to be the secretary. There is an opening in the IFC for a webmaster tomorrow. I kinda want to do it, but so does my friend. And that wouldn’t be cool if I went up and beat him. Ya hear me? My hall is having a mixer with Echols 2nd Right on Friday. We are all going to Fridays after Five, which will be lots of fun.
Informal Rush is starting tomorrow. It is really short, only a week and a half long. I hope we get some good guys. It should be fun, but long nights during rush. Come on out to Pi Lambda Phi. That is all for me, goodnight.
