(Taken during CMSC 130 (Digital Design) laboratory class, March 09, 2011.)
They look creepy. They look icky. They look scary. But no, they’re essential things to digital life.
Integrated circuit packages are those we handle everytime during Digital Design class. We use them to analyse functions concerning binary sequences and logic operations. We connect them with an assortment of wires and a breadboard (nope, not the one used for bread, but the one used for circuits like these). We use them to know how digital life really is.
Digital life is an endless stream of ones and zeroes, and these creepy crawlers, whether this size or many times smaller than them, are what makes it more meaningful.
I have only three months to go before I should graduate this year. With this short time, I need to rush things up. Now, I must redeem myself.
I bought a pad of sticky notes yesterday to keep me informed of what to do in the next few days. I know I do not have the time now to enjoy, and I should act now. So the sticky notes, which are now on the wall of my bedroom, should remind me every now and then.
It still makes me think if I could still make it that far. It’s a challenge for me to finish up what I have started. It’ll be great for me to be able to be on stage getting that diploma that I have dreamed of. And I have to be reminded of that.
I wanna go out there and be reminded that there is a world waiting for me – a world that is cruel, impatient, demanding and unforgiving. It will be hard for me not to be reminded of that.
Time is short. Now I have to remind myself.
Somewhere around the corner, in the outdoors, you see a chair.
Sometimes you just sit there and do nothing. Think about something. Look beyond. Go deep. Into the bowels of nowhere.
You realise that chair you sat becomes your own pond of imagination, where ideas and opinions are ready to catch. A feast of endless possibilities. A treat for something big.
Make every outdoor chair your tambayan. Your bumming station. Your site of imagination.
I went to kill my boredom to see if I had trained my British accent well… and the quiz says it so… I think.
Which British accent do you have?
Your Result: Posh Totty!
You must have been very well brought up or simply remember how the English language was actually meant to be spoken like. It’s amazing how many people have forgotten this but you haven’t so job well done chum!
