Now into the 5th week of the Winter quarter here at RIT and it definitely feels like midterm week. I have to keep telling myself that everything will work itself out and everything is as it should be. In fact, I told that to Alex, one of my group members for 2D Games Programming just this afternoon. I guess there are common themes circulating the campus ranging from periods of stress and pressure nicely balanced with periods of panic and fear. Welcome to the RIT quarter system: either you learn it, or you don't... and it's always a choice.
My choice this weekend was to finish my KaleidoScorpions project, now complete with an engaging interface for artistic adventures into the sublime. To get around pokey performance issues when viewing on sub-supercomputer platforms, the number of scorpions is selectable and defaults to the minimum number of five (5).
This week brings 3 midterm projects due and an exam in Music Theory. In case you don't hear from me in a few more days, you'll know why. The simple fact is that I haven't been doing anything besides school work since classes resumed last week. Day and night, weekend or not, I'm usually sitting here in front of my 'puter working on something. And now I'd better get back to it.
