Tsk! Blogger access is now blocked from work - thank you Websense, you are indeed helpful.

My exams are finished now! In fact I even have the result for the first one. I passed.

I now have a presentation to prepare for college next Tuesday. This is to introduce a project that we have to do next year. I'm quite happy giving presentations, but we didn't get the details of what's required until last night. Hmm, there's a lot to it. I've drawn up a project plan and based on 10 hours work a week I should deliver it on the 31st March 2007. That's in addition to the four exams I have to sit. Oh, and the fact that I go to work!

A combination of exams, too much wine, being busy at work and generally being a lazy arse has led to my gym visits becoming somewhat more sporadic of late. When that happens I start eating junk too and I can feel a bit of a thickening of my new slim waistline. Well fuck off gut, you're not getting away with it this time.

And to the new start at work - stop poking at your face all day or I may have to resort to violence.

First outside pint of the year!

Fuxache, it's exam time again ....

... when it feels like I've just finished the previous ones. The joy that is the next month looks like this -

Next Tuesday, the 25th, is our last HCI nightclass. The following Thursday, the 4th, is our HCI exam. The Thursday after that, the 11th, is our ecommerce exam.

Unfortunately, that's not quite the end of it. Next year, we have to complete a project (subject matter of our own choice), written in Java with a database back end. We've been told we're getting no class time for this at all. Part of the project (worth 10% of the overall mark) is a presentation. Well, joy, it's been decided we've to do that at the end of May.

Better do some work then .....

This phone's a bit fiddly - need to practice!


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

Bored ...

... I'm ready to go back to work tomorrow.

I've spent the weekend eating chocolate eggs and drinking wine. I should have been at the gym and then studying for my exams ( 2 1/2 weeks away).

Isn't it weird ...

.... how when anyone else gets a cold, they're just being a wimp.

When I get it, I feel lousy.
