I'm in the home stretch now. It's really interesting - Friday was my crunch day, the day when everything was supposed to fall apart, but it didn't. I somehow managed to get everything done. There's still a decent amount of stress left, but it's stuff that I'm pretty sure that I can handle.
The proposal for my honors thesis is submitted, and I didn't even get an option of doing one. The chair of the department addressed me by name and said "You owe us an honors thesis" when my proposal was a day late. It should be a lot of fun.
Hah! Other than having written a 400+ line Perl script that I can't test yet because it requires administrator access to do a lot of the stuff and I don't have that. Just hoping that none of the stuff it does ends up wiping out people's accounts. <grimace>
Sounds like my job is more or less set up for the summer. I start work on the 22nd. It sounds like I'll be doing a lot of the same stuff I was over January, and I'm hoping that I can dig into another project and see if I can get out of the C++ box to some extent. Somebody has to need some systems automation or functional programming done.
Life is weird, but good. I got shot out of the sky like a P-51 attempting to dogfight with an F-16 by Emilia. Oh, well - she said she still wants to be friends, and I guess that that's progress, in a sense. I wish I was better at this - I really don't have a clue what I'm doing or how to go about it. Oh, well. Chalk up another swing and a miss.
May 19 is much closer than it was last time. A lot of things fell into place for people, so overall it seems like it's going to be a very good experience. I have daffodils to give away. I just wish that I wasn't quite so locked up with all of these people. The fact that so many of them are taking off to parts known but far away scares me.
I don't know. I think maybe I should just give up on the whole social interaction thing. I'm not very good at it, I can't really read people or figure out what they're thinking, and I'm hopeless when it comes to women. I wouldn't know an opportunity if it bit me in the ass. The problem is, I really don't want to give up, but at this point it's probably just easier to do that. Maybe after a couple months I'll gain enough illusions of competency to try again.
Oh, well. Tomorrow is a day of homework. I should go to bed.
