1. Grammar blog
It doesn't help that I'm a geek. Geeks do weird things to punctuation, too. For example, it's hard for me not to put punctuation outside quoted strings, such as the "you're" in the first paragraph. I can't remember how to punctuate embedded sentences. I may just go and get myself a copy of "Eats, Shoots, and Leaves"...
2. Thought for the day: Follow your bliss
Or, as Joseph Campbell said:<blockquote> My general formula for my students is "Follow your bliss." Find where it is, and don't be afraid to follow it. - Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth </blockquote>
Find out what you are truly passionate about and give your all to it.
3. Week in review
Monday was a blast with a tango party. Then it was back to work, with lots of papers to write and books to read. I took some time out to take the winter clothes pictures my mom's been asking for, and I also took a self-portrait. I raided the library for a whole bunch of books and started thinking about the classes I want to take next semester. My week wrapped up with an IBM meeting, and my weekend started with a bunch of rants and reflections on computer science education.
Tomorrow I'm going to hand in my MIE1407 paper and then work like heck on the project proposal for IBM due on Tuesday. Then I need to work on my application for the Delta Kappa Gamma scholarship and finish marking the papers for the DSS project. Oh, and I shouldn't forget to study for my finals exams on Monday, too!
Hectic week up ahead, but with judicious planning, I'm sure I can survive.
