So we are really parting
It just occurred to me that I had the last official session with my classmates at my project defense today.
After 5 solid years, we are really off to our different worlds. I don’t want to get emotional about it though.
Looking back, I can really say it was a worthwhile journey. My best of friends are among you guys. We certainly had our many differences, despite my best efforts to stay low-key, but we still shared a lot in common.
Seriously, it would have been really weird to have had 70 Dare Fatimehins in that class, but the class will be incomplete without the guy. The same applies to everyone.
I know I wasn’t the friend of everyone, as much as I tried. To those that let me into their lives, I really appreciate the favour because you made life fun for me. And to others to whom I dint make any impact (or to those I pass off as a jack ass) i hope the future gives me a chance to show I’m not all that bad.
It would be my joy to see everyone do well in very little time, and I hope u guys dint leave me out of your successes too. Don’t forget to buzz me too, if you’ve got opportunities I may be interested in. I’d really appreciate that.
I’ll cherish every other chance I get to see you guys again. I savour every moment cos it will be a bonus that will linger in my heart forever.
College will have been incomplete without you guys.
Thanks a lot.

Yesterday, many of my classmates (including myself) got to see our official current GPAs. There was alotta frenzy in the air. Mixed feelings, agitations and many more kind of emotions. I couldn’t help but wonder why all the late justling.
We all made our different choices during our 5ym year stay, we should all be ready for the consequences. Not that I have particularly outstanding GPA scores, but I made my choices and I have no issues with them.
At the end of it all, it boils down to the Choice problem and the lesson is quite clear. Our current state is an aggregate of the choices we have made in the past.
Make the right choices today to secure the tomorrow you aspire for.

…seeing that i spent a large swath of yesterday sleeping and rolling on my bed. I couldnt help but wonder how much of productive work i could have gotten done. Not that I’m such a lazy ass, but i studied through the night and nature refused to be cheated by me.
Where has my much touted “Self Motivation” gone? Anyways, it doesnt matter today.
It occured to me that, if only we could properly control how much sleep we had, how much movies we saw and how much play we got, we would have a great deal of time for productive work.

Official Statement from the Family and Partner of Aaron Swartz:
Our beloved brother, son, friend, and partner Aaron Swartz hanged himself on Friday in his Brooklyn apartment. We are in shock, and have not yet come to terms with his passing.
Aaron’s insatiable curiosity, creativity, and…
..studying for final exams and i can’t help the nostalgic feeling i get from the memories it produces. I clearly remember studying for 18hrs a day while preparing for my first exams in college. Its not any easier now, but i guess I got used to it.
I’m probably more concerned with what lies beyond the exams, the many decisions I’d have to make with very little margin for errors. Scary.
The big picture is quite clear for me, I’v got to find my place in this complex world and leave my mark there.
Oh, I’d have to get back to my study, before i get too carried away with the big picture while I still gotta print the small one.
See you soon.
