News for December 2014

No more coffee at 11PM from now on

2014 was a strange duck of a year for me. I say that because I'm not sure whether or not I categorize it as either a good or a great year. It was a horrible year for the family as we lost our grandpa earlier, and with Christmas Day less than 24 hours away, it's going to be different. It was different when I lost my other grandpa a couple years back as well. On the other hand, I had an amazing summer and it's looking like the year will end on a bit of a high note. But it would be impudent to consider this year a good year after what happened earlier. Maybe categorizing how a year went is too antiquated of an approach now. It's too unrealistic to expect a year to be perfect, and maybe that's the problem.

The things I think about at 3 in the morning on Christmas Eve.

Post Exam Week Reflection

It's been a couple days since finals ended, and in essence, the end of my first term at BCIT. I knew going into this term that BCIT had a reputation for pushing their students to their mental limits, and after going through the meat grinder myself, I guess the stories were true. After 5 exams in one week – two the week before – I think this semester has killed all my drive and excitement over school that I once expressed a few months earlier. I think it's safe to say, after I graduate this is it for my academic career.

Wanted to decompress after the term ended. I've been up since 9AM today, decided to engage in activities that wouldn't really use my brain a whole lot. It's almost 5PM and I don't think I've checked my phone at all.  Aside from this I've been pretty disconnected from everything today. Fuck.
