Did I Mention I Was Tired……

…frustrated, and depressed? I didn’t think so, because I try to maintain a positive outlook on life. To steal a phrase from our military heroes, I try to embrace the suck.

And right now, things really suck.

Based on recent test scores, things I think I know, I don’t; and things I know I don’t know, I really don’t know. The easy nonchalance of the first week of this semester regarding the Java programming language has been replaced with a fear and loathing that must approximate that a a lowly peasant living in plague- infested Bucharest in 1348; I just know it’s gonna get me……….

The sad thing is that I think my study habits have actually improved over the last 12 months.

But the fugue has persisted for about a week now, and as the weekend draws nigh all my thoughts are focused on surviving the latest impossible programming assignment, database queries that don’t return any results, and further adventures in the labyrinth of statistical hypotheses.

Spring Break cannot get here soon enough!

    You’ll be just fine. Don’t forget to sleep well and get exercise – it does wonders for the soul.

“Life’s hard, son. It’s harder when you’re stupid.” — The Duke.

Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate,no despotism can enslave. At home, a friend, abroad, an introduction, in solitude a solace and in society an ornament.It chastens vice, it guides virtue, it gives at once grace and government to genius. Without it, what is man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage. - Joseph Addison
The term informavore (also spelled informivore) characterizes an organism that consumes information. It is meant to be a description of human behavior in modern information society, in comparison to omnivore, as a description of humans consuming food. George A. Miller [1] coined the term in 1983 as an analogy to how organisms survive by consuming negative entropy (as suggested by Erwin Schrödinger [2]). Miller states, "Just as the body survives by ingesting negative entropy, so the mind survives by ingesting information. In a very general sense, all higher organisms are informavores." - Wikipedia
