In keeping with the hectic theme that is my life these days, uni restarted today. It really crept up and caught me unawares.
I have a dreadful timetable this semester, because I'm doing two Computer Science subjects, and they like doing three one hour lectures a week. To cap it off, one of the subjects isn't doing a 5pm laboratory, so I have to do a two hour lab during work hours.
Software Design, I'm told is fairly easy, compared to Software Construction, but this was told to me by someone who didn't consider themselves a code monkey, so I'll just have to see for myself what it's like. It's got an open-book exam, which is always a double-edged sword.
Distributed and Concurrent Systems is a course that has a bad rep from everyone I've spoken to. With a final exam worth 70%, it certainly sounds intimidating. I need to make very sure I stay on top of this one. Apparently we're going to learn Ada. I always relish the opportunity to be forced to learn a new language, so this course should be interesting.
Just to round things off, parking has become even more difficult, with the open-air, non-permit-requiring casual carpark in City West being closed for some new building the ANU is going to whack up. The parking for non-permit holding people is absolutely deplorable, as I have ranted about in the past.
