The fact that I am now back at college, with a semester of classes and a full year Final Year project to work on isn't going to help that much I suspect.
I finished work last Friday week, and got a very nice send off the following Friday. It was good to see so many of the people I worked with outside of work for a change. I picked up a bit of valuable general computer experience during my 19 months there, though not much in the way of coding. Such is the price of an admin job, I guess.
I started back to college yesterday. Given that we only have a 10 week semester of classes (give or take a week or two), most of what we are doing are only very condensed courses, or really just primers. Digital Image Processing looks like it will be interesting, Object Orientated Databases is going to be excruciating. I haven't made my mind up on the business course yet.
My timetable also blows big green hairy chunks. Two days a week, I have one class in the morning, followed by four hours of a break before the next one. That wouldn't be so bad except for the fact that this campus, in its six years of existance, hasn't done much in the way of entertainment. Hell, the sports pitches are only being opened tomorrow. None of the societies meet until after college hours, when the rooms become available to them, so there is nothing that can be done in that regard. The only option is really a 20 minute walk into town, but unless there is something you are specifically looking for, there isn't much available there either. I badly need to learn how to drive so I can get home in these times.
Spent the week off basically arsing about, caught up on Battlestar Galactica Season 2 now that its on dvd, just in time to be able to watch the new season when it starts here in the New Year. I'm also after working about a third of the way into Code Complete. Damned interesting book, that.
