Oops long time, no post! The past three weeks have been absolutely insane! last Friday, I completed my Maymester course, which I honestly will never take a Maymester course again. It was way too much crammed and so compact in three weeks, which resulted in too much stress. That’s the most intense three-week I have ever had. The nice part was taking three credits in an intensive three weeks! But that wasn’t my only reason for taking a class in Maymester.
I took the Mobile Interfaces class with Scott McCrickard, who is a visting professor at the university of Colorado, Boulder. The class will no longer be offered at CU, so that was the last chance to take it! It was a great opportunity for students to take advantage of offering popular classes by guest scholars.
That was my first class in the area of Human Computer Interaction, and I think I learned a lot from that class. We covered a range of topics related to Mobile interfaces. We explored several mobile platforms, although the focus was more on Android platforms. We studied very interesting topics such as UI design principles, designing for people with disabilities, evaluating mobile UIs, Intellectual property, and the market place. We created small mobile apps projects. I created very cool Android apps for this class, and I’ll be releasing some of them soon.
On the whole, the class was more than I expected! It was fun! I liked it and loved how quite and laid-back the campus was!
Yay for Summer! :)
Yesterday, was my last day of Spring semester! I had no finals, so I finished a little bit earlier! I had two final projects: one for my Animation class, and the other one was for my Software Engineering class. I’m quite happy that both went very well and had a lot of fun working on them!
Unfortunately, my Summer vacation is only for the next week because I’m going to take a Maymester class!
It’s a three-week long semester, and I hope it’s not going to be as stressful as I imagine!
I’ll be super busy for the next three weeks but such is life!
Good luck to all of you who have finals!
I was so busy during finals week. I had one final and two individual projects.
I’m glad it went well, and Fall semester is over!
It feels great when I’m all done! I can feel a tremendous sense of relief! I really like that feeling!
Yet, I still feel some sort of exhaustion and burnout, and I could sleep for ten hours but still feel sleep deprivation.
Too much work was done during this long semester! It was the longest and worst one! Taking three graduate level classes was a huge mistake. Certainly, I will never do that again! Too much work that keeps you busy all semester!
But this will happen again, next semester, and the semester after that. And this cycle might never end!
Suck it up!
Restorative sleep is what I yearn for.
This week is going to be crazy! I have a test on Tuesday, two projects due on Wednesday, and a final on next Monday! I might not study at the library because it’s going to be crowded and full of those who turn the library into a house!
So my plan is to stay home, drink more coffee, eat fast food, and sleep less!
Wish me and anyone else having finals luck.
