Just when you thought I was dead...

This place -- and The Window -- look so bare. I apologize for that. I wish I could say that school wasn't kicking my ass and that I was just too lazy to write. Yes... I wish I could say I was too lazy. Of course, that's simply not the case. I have a couple of classes where I find myself on the bubble -- classes that, if I were to get less than a "C" in them, could affect my graduation date by as much as six months. I guess six months isn't much in the big scheme of things... but it's a big deal to a man who really wants to graduate college.

My video project is coming along... but certainly not at the pace I would like. My only comfort is that everyone else working on the program is behind schedule, too. We're dealing with a lot of new technology that none of us are very familiar with. The problem is compounded because the technology we're working with is new to the professors, too. They certainly aren't as much help with the new stuff as they were with the old because they've spent as much time with it as we have.

I think this is the first semester where I've found myself wishing we had a few extra weeks tacked onto the end. I need more time for my video project and I need more time in Regulations and Ethics classes. Of course, life's a bitch and you deal with it. I will make it all work... And if I don't, then I'll make it work the next time around. You've just gotta do what you've gotta do. Too many times, people spend more time bitching about life or the cards its dealt and not enough time living life. With that said, I think I'll log off.

Happy Thanksgiving, ya'll.
