many of the greatest achievements of the world were accomplished by tired and discouraged men who kept on working

i have never met a course that i would be exerting so much effort on until i met IE32.

this, by far, has been the subject i exerted full effort on. i am honestly going to tell you that i am just getting by college and passing my subjects without the help of divine intervention.

however, this case is very different from the rest. i’ve been calling out the names of every god and deity i can remember just to help me pass this subject.

i won’t settle for anything but a pass. because, failing to do so would mean an additional year to my student career. now, who wants that?

i just want this subject to be done and over with. but, we still have a paper and presentation to prepare. however, to do that, we should have an exam average of 60 to continue with the course.

i can do this!

the instinct of ownership is fundamental to man’s nature

March 9, 2009 at 10:59 pm (academic, rants)

these past few days have plagued by several undeniably frustrating incidents.

the first of which is the breakdown of my computer which translated into lost files and programs.

which is a big “OH NO!” if you ask me. the road towards the end of the semester is almost near and i my computer crashes down on me. what about my papers? what about my files?

pero, the good thing is that i have the will to back them up. uh-huh. i am being a better computer user. ever since i got rejected from the inhinyero interview last year by not knowing how to back-up my important files. 😛

anyway, im still not over having to share a computer with my siblings, again. i was happy even though the cpu was just noisy. at least, it was mine.

but, as i know, i have to wait until the next one comes.

how long the wait will be, i don’t know.
