Legal age

It is not a nice thing to grow older. Time passes by so fastly that one can't feel it. If it was destined to me by god to live for the age of 60 or 70 I reckon I will regret the time I wasted and how nice was my youth and will wish back for those days to come. This is already the isssue now. I can't believe that I am over twenty. Few months from now and I will graduate and start faing that ugly life. Not really, life is hard but its full of thrilling challenges that are more adventurous than these movies that I watch. I have now passed the legal guardian age last week which is 21. I can do a lot of new things that I couldn't do before

I am able to open bank accounts
I can now have a visa card -- good for squandering money around.
I can be a witness on marriage contracts. This would be fun specially with friends getting married without approval or knowledge of their parents which will happen soon.
I can trade in the stock market.
I can buy and sell property on my own. This means I can be a crook or work as a broker.

Things I can't still do yet.

Get a Full time job. Have to graduate first.
Run for elections in clubs. 5 years have to pass first on my full membership which requires graduation first.
Run for elections of the city council or the parliament. I have to be over 30.
Nominate myself for presidency. I have to be over 40.

well uh, if there is any cool thing I can do after completing 21 years, feel free to comment on that. I guess I attained most rights by the age of 18.

Operating System Course:

I came up with the following one day after the final exam of the Operating System course. I am sure I will find it modified and shared on email chains later on. It first appeared on the Google Group of the course.

Here it follows:

My advise to anyone is not to take 341 and 345 concurrently. They will cause deadlock. I have already swapped them out of my memory and compressed the fragmentation that resulted from them. The status of both of them Block Suspend and they will die of starvation when the grades are published. If you have any suggestion of a good scheduling policy that can handle them, please feel free to share it. I will wait on the vacation and will be signalled at the beginning of the next semester.
Till then.
Have a nice vacation and good luck

Worst day

This has been one of my worst days in university. December the 14th. I will just share my thoughts about that day.

The worst feeling is to feel crippled and you have to save your life while you are drowning.

One keeps getting streched untill "tuck" a snap happens.

Always expect the worst from people.

Never show allegiance to unworthy but strong foes.

There has to be a time when the legend will be reborn again.

One has to be patient, really patient, salvation is near.

Life is full of ups and downs but when the downs increase then life is sliding away.

Don't let go of hope.

All of these stuff are just coming out of me. I might have made them up and others were stored in the depth of my brain.

Goodluck for anyone with a pure spirit.

Silly blogs tests; not this one.

i have many times came across these silly tests that many stupid people do and i decided to be stupid and do one of those about my blog. Here is my blog rating. Well, this time in turns out not be really silly. This is somehow close to reality. This is the first short post I have written ever. I saw a lot of similar tests like what is your political orientation, how romantic you are, how you rate your sexual life...etc. I think these things are not meant to be real they are just for fun. But people tend to believe them and I think I might be one of those people even though I do know that such stuff is rubbish. But for current's post sake, it isn't :D:D

Your Blogging Type is Unique and Avant Garde

You're a bit ... unusual. And so is your blog.
You're impulsive, and you'll often post the first thing that pops in your head.
Completely uncensored, you blog tends to shock... even though that's not your intent.
You tend to change your blog often, experimenting with new designs and content.

Dealing with stress; taming the beast

Stress, it is the psychological pressure one suffers from accidents, work load, deadlines, people and life. This is my definition. Since I am still a student, now a senior in university, the usual kind of pressure would be exams and grades. Not really. I don't give a shit about grades. I used to care about grades when I was a real nerd. I was but I am not now. Although I have to keep my gpa high enough to be acceptable upon working in known multi national comapnies or when trying to secure a scholarship for a masters degree, which seems to be one of my top priorities in the near future(3-4 years from now). I just pushed my gpa towards the safe limit that seems to be acceptable but I think I lost my motivation or so. I am facing a lot of projects and deadlines + I have to study other things. I have no time to review for the finals If I want to do well in the projects. I will get lower grades and probably bad reputation if I do bad in the projects - they are group projects - and good in my finals. The latter is worse because your group partners can spread the word that you are not working and you will end up with lazy lads for the senior project. ewww!

Well to deal with that pressure, one has to set priorities. You can't reach all of your goals unless you go for that extra mile on the expense on other things!! I have to work hard on one certain project. While I am doing relatively good in a couple of courses. Well, those can be set aside and some effort could be saved for the project. But in one of the courses a miracle is needed for a passing grade and 100 hours of studying are needed. This thing can be sacrificed. Well, the rest can go for the remaining courses. In that way, one would end with high grades, good grades and find an excuse for the worst one like the professor has farted and the whole class fainted.

End word....academic pressure is nonsense. It should be enjoyable whether one gets bad grades or honours. In my own opinion, I believe I have to think about what I am going to do after the finals.
