I’m gonna start ranting here.
I am not exaggerating in this post. Every single bit of detail is accurate!
Every now and then, I come across blog entries with people complaining about Java and ASP and .VB and MySQL and their family of junk. I understand how it feels because sometimes I struggle with these programming crap too.
However, when it comes to an extent that you have too many different things to cope and that you are frustrated that Microsoft’s answers to simple solutions are so difficult to develop, you get really pissed and surrender at the mercy of the software.
I used to think that people who are multi-lingual are very cool. People who can speak English, Mandarin, Malay, Hokkien, Cantonese, Teochew.. and many other dialects. How cool is that?!
Well, I am multi-lingual too. I can speak 7 languages! English, Mandarin, Cantonese, HTML, MySQL, Java, and VB.Net. How cool is that?! Not at all! The last 4 are irrelevant.
Complaining so much about it wouldn’t change things for me, but boy, am I glad that it’s all over! Spent close to 60 gruelling hours, barely slept, rushing against time to complete a report that determines how much I wasted my 3 years in polytechnic life pursuing something I am not interested in. Come to think of it, what did I learn for the past 3 years? All my projects and assignments, since Year 1, were completed with the help of Jensen, Jacob, Jolene etc. My final year project was completed with the help of Han Xiang, Gerald, Augustus and Zong De! I don’t know how I managed to pass all my exams, but I was one of the fortunate few that passed every semester without studying.
And even this report was completed with the help of Augustus, who came over to my house to help me.
This report, unfortunately, is not mine. It belongs to a nerd. I borrowed it because his report is almost like a model report. I am using it as a reference to do mine. His report probably has close to 200 pages. Well done! Mine probably doesn’t even have 70 pages.
Not like I really care, but in case I don’t make it this semester, I already have other plans for a much brighter future. I am pretty confident of it! 🙂
Finally submitted my report in school before 12pm and started to feel a little hungry, which isn’t really surprising because I haven’t ate anything since last night.
Prepared my lunch at home, then heard a still small voice reminding me, “Psst.. It’s Tuesday today!”
Oh gosh.. Gotta overcome the flesh.
