The Graduate


Well, finally, after several years of spending time tutoring this student he is now as-they-say passed all the Computer Science requirements last term and has been approved to attend the graduation ceremonies. The last subject he took was really fun, he did manage to ace most of them and got an A minus, not bad for a subject that had a lot of C and C++ programming, along with tons of OpenGL and Matrix concepts.

I’m happy for him after all that painstaking sessions he had to go through. He’ll probably never forget those moments when he felt like he was about to give, yet he still went on trying his best to pass the subject. I would humiliate him for getting a passing mark and he would always get pissed and not return any calls after that, yet we somehow he managed to get-along and continue the sessions.

He’s definitely happy that he’s preparing for a vacation soon.
