These two weeks have been very trying on me, and it has been a roller coaster ride to say the least.
I submitted my first project for HPCA, and after waiting like a week for the grade, I found out that I did rather poorly on it. While it was a passing grade, it was not what I was shooting for. This is not how I envisioned starting off this journey… in the hole.
However on the upside, I am getting some of the concepts. My biggest problem I think is that I have been a bit rushed. I am hoping that things will mellow out a bit now that I sort of have a routine figured out and the two side projects (not college related) are almost complete. There is also the fact that I probably should have waited on taking this class until I could rehash some old school stuff.
Comnet, has been really, really frustrating. It is turning out to be more of a coding class in Python than an actually network class. This makes me punch happy for two reasons. First, I did not want to take a coding class. Second, the intro video, prerequisites, basically stated that you did not need to be fluent in Python. I don’t want to say “LIES” but I will say I might have been sold a false bill of goods.
Since I missed two weeks, I guess I owe you two Georgia Tech facts. Well here they are.
- Georgia Tech maybe the first thing I actually lose money on and not see it through to the end. If this doesn’t kill me, it will make me broke.
- Georgia Tech is apparently the 35th ranked public university. There are some other rankings there that I don’t understand and I don’t want to understand now because I am tired. However for comparison, Iowa and Iowa State are 71 and 106 respectively.
Iowa is tied with Baylor, American, Virginia Tech and Minnesota. Iowa State is tied with Loyola, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oregon, USF, and Tennesee. (http://colleges.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-colleges/georgia-institute-of-technology-139755/overall-rankings)
