I’m so tired, I just want this semester to be over with.
My capstone professor likes to help his students find internships and jobs when he hears about an opening, and there’s one that one of my classmates considered doing. He talked to the employers several times, but he decided he doesn’t want the position, and he told me today that if the employers let him recruit, he’d refer them to me.
I haven’t really looked at the company, but it’s nice knowing that a colleague thinks highly of you enough to recommend you for jobs.
And this position is great because it’s in the city where I live.
So there’s an open computer lab specifically for the mechanical engineers in the engineering building, and it’s made up of two rooms of computers. I walked into the lab and it’s super full, so I go into the second room, which is only open when the first one is full. There’s a bunch of people in this room, and all the computers are taken, but I didn’t really care because I just needed the outlets and desk space. So I move to the back of the room where there’s just an empty desk with a bunch of outlets and settle in with my headphones on.
Fifteen minutes later, I hear what sounds like a professor lecturing. I turn around and, sure enough, there’s a class going on.
So I’m sitting here, in the back of the class that I’m not in, trying to ignore the professor that’s talking about this class’s upcoming final exam and stay quiet and inconspicuous and hope that no one is really noticing me. Because I’d be too embarrassed to just get up and leave in the middle of this class.
Luckily, I see some guys who are in my next class at 4:30, so I know I can just leave at the end of this class with the rest of them.
Update: I think this is either the FEA class (that I’m taking next semester) or the CAD class. Maybe I should pay attention.
Man, I hope I win another calendar during the games at the family Christmas party.

So… I’ve gotten a few new followers in the last month or so. So…
Welcome, new followers! Hope you guys enjoy your stay. If not, feel free to unfollow (no hard feelings). I am curious, though… how’d you come across my little slice of tumblr?
Ugh. I actually can’t wait until next semester. The only classes I have left are senior design and three technical electives. And I know at least one person in each class, so that’s kind of great.
Six more months.
