After five years of actively hunting and ponding others on the floor while myself remaining immune, I was ponded under what is being dubbed "The Shrug Clause." Basically, I hadn't been ponded yet and I needed to be before I graduated.
The devious fiends got me Sunday afternoon. Of course fearing that I would be too much for them to handle under normal circumstances, they waited until right after I returned from a Chinese buffet. They didn't even let me get onto the floor, but pulled me right out of the car.
"Not one of you's gonna survive this!"
...speaking of things that have taken long enough...
I'M FINALLY GRADUATING!!!!
Five years, two majors, and, if my calculations are correct, Suma Cum Laude. Take that, engineering curriculum!
Not that it hasn't been difficult; the reason there wasn't a April post is because the last month has been madness, especially the last week.
Things due last Friday: Everything for E-Lab 3, including all minilabs, a 15-V power supply, a function generator, and a 10-W power amplifier (I didn't even get the last one done).
Things due Monday: Most everything for Senior Design, including a poster, web page, technical abstract, and Final Presentation.
Thing due Tuesday: Senior Design documentation (shudder) due at 9:00 am, after which Hopps and I drove up to Oklahoma City and back to finish signing our apartment lease for the summer.
After that, I was done, but routinely forcing myself to stay awake inadvertently caused my brain to switch into live-without-sleep apocalypse mode, and I didn't sleep Tuesday night either simply because I wasn't tired.
