So Ends Another Chapter
As the semester draws to a close, one can’t help but succumb to that tinge of sadness brought about every time we conclude yet another 14-week semester.
Let not the lack of updates to this poor blog deceive you though, for you bet, the semester was so jam-packed that I promptly shied away from the Add New Post button. But this blog wasn’t left idle for nothing.
We pulled through preparing a case study report and presenting it later..
We spent hours on end building, programming, testing and programming, and programming, aaand programming a Lego robot for the Robotic Competition..
..which exceeded our wildest expectations when it secured a shiny 3rd place.
We got a taste of industrial machining when we grinded and milled a nut and bolt out of bare steel cylinders.
We’d never look at music boxes in gift shops the same way again after cracking our heads implementing one in Embedded Microcontrollers.
We celebrated our achievements in the scholarships presentation ceremony..
In a few hours time, we’d head into the halls. Where the air-cond chill and endless rows of isolated tables arranged in a perfect grid overwhelms your surroundings, as if designed specifically to thwart your confidence. As we approach our designated desks, although in sweaty palms and short, cold breaths, we sit down in dignity.
For it is with dignity we make 4-months of hardship — worthwhile.
