New Projects

The holidays are over and while I skipped out on visiting the relatives, I did all right by my standards. Now there are only new year and my birthday to get through and I have another month before uni starts up again. Regarding uni, it turns out that in order to retake an exam from a previous year, the course point are again counted against the maximum amount of points I can take this year. It's either not resit the exam at all, which would be somewhat a waste since I took nine months of class already, or resit the exam and drop the practical block in the summer. The thing is, I don't need really need the course I failed, I can take another module instead, but I have to take the practical course in order to graduate some day. (like that is ever going to happen...)

I got nice presents all around. Some DVDs I wanted and lots of edibles, including dark chocolate and a big case of my favourite protein bars. Thanks to everyone who sent cards or goodies, you know who you are. They are very much appreciated.

I tend to get depressed when I don't have enough to do, so I started a new project, aside from fanfic related things. I haven't done very much with my server so far, aside from set up a web page which doesn't work. I found the admin panel for the server not handy for installing software. So I'm currently learning my way around linux. It took me half a day to install a java package, but I think I figured out the most basic commands. I think think that fuzzing around with a console is a major pain, but I'm learning. I really need to get this screen thingy installed because one console window just isn't enough. I'm the kind of user who can have 20-odd tabs open in opera.

  • Tow hurdles taken, two more to go

    As of today, I'm finally done with the two group projects that have been keeping me busy for weeks. All that leaves is the end-of-module assignment…

  • And the results are in...

    Got it a few days ago: pass with merit on that medicinal chemistry course I took earlier this year. No word yet on either one of the first…

  • Playing catch-up once again

    The S807 exam is finally behind me and the exhaustion from the trip and the exam itself is fading. I wish I could just relax now for a few weeks, but…
