Third semester goes on at full steam

11 August, 2013 by Sunit Nandi

College has reopened. Now I’m in my third semester. Things have got rough from now on.

I didn’t quite expect so much workload right at the beginning of the session. The advanced computing assignment required us to write 30 programs in C. To add to the misery, I had friends calling me up on the phone asking me to explain how to write the code. Want to hear something worse? Some even tried to compile some of my codes on Turbo C++ when they were actually meant for GCC. Call it laziness or reluctance to install Linux on their part, I had to find ways to rewrite some of the code. So much for a home assignment.

Adding to my woes is the mini-project. That leaves no time for self-study, group activities and hobbies.

I did make a new friends with people who study now in my classroom. But I still miss my friends who are in Electrical Department. I hardly get to see them.

I tried to complete my work for today and then tried to write a post about my holiday in detail. But to my horror, my site wasn’t loading. My web host notified me that their datacenter provider SingleHop was going through a major outage in their Chicago base. So the server was unreachable ever since morning. It only seems to be back now. I was also planning to test my code for mini project on the server, but no.

Bored, I idled. Then me and a friend set up a torrent seedbox, then another friend asked for assistance with his blog. The server wasn’t back up until 5 PM.

I got off the computer. Studied discrete mathematics for a while. Then went out for grocery shopping. Right now I am sitting on a bench and typing this out on WordPress for Android (a handy app it is, indeed!).

Tomorrow begins another tiring week, another Monday.

Sigh.
