I'm Feeling Lucky
This is not a result of any kind of "Google bombing", I swear. It's just that I have more hits than IML's website, which is so outdated. I don't intend to make my blog go public. Nakakahiya eh. hehehehe. Especially when some professionals (i.e professors) could accidentally bump into this blog.
There is nothing to feel lucky about, actually. Just recently, our thesis group had crammed for our weekly progress report. As a result, we are sanctioned to submit a progress report within the Christmas vacation. We were somewhat scolded, not to mention that we made fun of our presentation background by using an image of a woman's body wearing a bikini. We deserve it anyway, as we still don't have the slightest idea about our thesis project. Our project title may go as far as something like:: "High Level Design and Implementation of a DLX Microprocessor with Multi-core Capability". It could even be better if we can call it as something like Intel's Celeron/Pentium or AMD's Opteron/Athlon. How about IML's "Scion" then?
Engineering Week Fever. Another period of boasting of one's org pride. You should witness UP Engineering Week, there is nothing like it in any other university. Not even in any other college in UP Diliman. Most students literally would die for the org (i.e. Toweng'g, TABL). Engineering Week Overall Champion (EWOC) points make the whole College of Engineering go round. This is also an event where being greedy is good. Stomp all other orgs and give no mercy. For being EWOC or at least beating your rival org in the rankings is the only thing that matters. Macchiavelli's principle, "the end justifies the means" applies dearly to this kind of competitive atmosphere.
This would be my last Engineering Week (EW), for I expect to graduate next semester. Most of my batchmates actively participate in UP Circuit's participation in EW, mainly because this would be also their last. Good for them, since they have less pressure in terms of their academics; a benefit for being on time. Now, they intend to enjoy their every last stay here in UP.
As for me, I am being contented by just being an EW spectator. It's still fun even just by being one. Besides, I still have to divide my time between my academics and my fraternity. My participation for Circuit had always been minimal as compared to my other orgs. That I leave it to my blockmates, especially since we hold the majority in number for Circuit's senior members. I'm playing Lawn Tennis for Circuit btw, but I don't expect to win the event. It's an open tournament, so all other tennis aficionados within UP were able to join the event. As of now, I have a 1-0 card. The win doesn't matter to me since my opponent was really a novice. My goal during that game was not to give him a match point. Next game is on tuesday, being in a winner's bracket I now expect to be in Wimbledoom.
