So I've been out of touch for a while. I haven't been showing up online except for short periods of time in Invisible mode to talk to all of three people (and then only occasionally), I haven't updated this for a while, and I'm badly backlogged on my e-mail. That's just what Finals do to me. It's been a crazy last few weeks.

The vast majority of my time has been taken up with my final project for Embedded Systems, with my final project from last semester's Computer Architecture taking up the rest. The former is submitted and I think Nate, Drew, and I did well on it. The latter is submitted even though it doesn't work. I figure I can probably pass the class- I explained what was wrong with the system and why I couldn't fix it in time, and generally tried to put things in such a way that Dr. Bayazit might give me partial credit- all I ask for is a C-. By not begging for it or openly demanding credit, I figure I stand a good chance of getting it.

I've got a lot of photos I want to post, but I don't feel like it right now. I've got one more final exam tomorrow, and then I'm out of here- my parents will be coming to empty out my dorm, pick me up, and get me moved home. Then I've got about a week and a half until I move to Redmond, Washington to go and work for Microsoft. It'll be the first summer for three years that I haven't spent at college, and the first summer for nine years that I haven't spend doing schoolwork, including homeschooling. And the first time in my life that I've actually been more than a hundred miles away from my parents for more than a week... and we can add a zero to that, as I'll be more than a kilomile (...uh, yeah) away.

This semester has been a total mess. Missed class from job interviews, missed class from programming tournaments, one stunningly bad professor, and a project carried over from last semester all conspired to make a crazy-busy semester that's left me at the verge of burnout. I need this as something different...
