Just as it should be


| Comments (3) | Views (0)

Winter quarter kicked off this week and I'm really stoked about what I've gotten myself into this time:

  • I'm finally doing some hardcore development in 4002-501 (2D Graphics Game Programming) with Professor Andy Phelps. We have the task of developing a full blown windows application game program in C++ using DirectX. It's time to roll up the shirt sleeves boys and get our hands dirty! Yeehaw!
  • I've accepted a Teacher's Assistant position with Professor Nancy Doubleday--who is wonderful to work with--and in my favorite class from last quarter: 4002-330 (Interactive Digital Media). The position also comes with a very nice perk: use of an office on the 2nd floor of GCCIS which has lots of desk space, 2 computers and a place to store my coat during the cold winter months. It also has a great view overlooking the walk to the library. And I have much to be thankful for! =)
  • Music theory with Professor Schell is wonderful food for the soul after so many technical courses I've been through. Enough said.
  • And I've taken on a grader position for Professor Whittington to make some video game money and keep brushed up on my Java skills. The course is geared toward students who had some difficulty with their first Java course, and is perfect for me to get my feet wet having never graded for a professor before.
  • And then there's Professor Liz Lawley's 4002-409 class (Web Site Design and Implementation). What can I say? The woman is brilliant and I'm very excited about the prospects of what I can learn from her. Webmaster In a Nutshell is the text for the course, and that pretty much sums up my feeling of Dr. Lawley. Oh, and Brendyn and I wound up sitting right next to each other the first day in class and didn't realize it until half-way through the class. Go figure.

And I'm sure there's more, but suffice to say that after only 3 days, I'm feeling like things are just as they should be. I continue to feel that I am at the center of my essence advancing towards my destiny. It's a truly remarkable experience... and I have much to be thankful for.

That is all great to hear, and have fun with the office, you are either in the one I had last quarter or right next to it. :-)

yeah, I'm definitely stoked about 409, as well. I can't wait until we get into hardcore stuff, it's exciting.

I'm a TA this quarter too, do all TA's get offices?

It was a surprise to me when I learned of it, though the course I'm working for, IDM (330), requires that I am available for one office hour a week... so I guess that's the reason why I have access to it. Presently there is just one other student I'm sharing the office with, though I haven't run into him/her at all this week.
