copping out of responsibility [Nov. 27th, 2000|04:13 pm]
Roy Janik
So I pawned the demonstration off on someone else. So all is good. After a series of slide-shows in the morning, I started talking to my fellow team members about how I wasn't sure if I was going to stay in grad. school or not. They all immediately told me that I was crazy, and that I should get my masters degree if it took 40 years. If that was the case, I said, then I really need to go to my class today. This is true, as we were scheduled to learn some important stuff. They agreed to cover for me, and thus I escaped responsibility. Thank you very much.

Another odd happening. Having a shitty "class c" parking permit, I am inevitably forced to park near I-35 when I go to class (which is in the middle of campus). Also, for some unknown reason, I never take the bus (the Campus Loop), but walk the entire distance. Today was especially okay, cuz it was beautiful and breezy. Walking to class, I had a nice introspective conversation with myself, and was looking forward to another one when class ended. At any rate, as I started to leave my class, one of the students started talking to me. He's working on a game, and not sure how to implement his AI (Artificial Intelligence) parser. He's also not sure about what he's going to do with himself after college, etc, etc. He talked to me all the way back to my car, and I eventually drove him to his car (which was ACROSS I-35). I know what you're thinking, and it's not true. He just wanted some advice. Still, an odd occurrence.

it is annoying when every member of your cohort feels that they must tell you how insane you are for thinking you may not return next year. i mean, you were the one who was nice enough to tell them about it so they wouldn't just be a cohort member short and never know why. oh, nevermind. my cohort is made up of only six people, and i'm sure the dynamic is not the same at all. still, it's annoying not to feel any sympathy or solidarity.
