The last time I posted here was when I was having a great time, feeling relieved and looking forward to having a wonderful week. It turned out to be my imagination, and that too a wild one. The next few days shaped out in an extremely unpredictable manner. The days (and nights) were awfully tough but I must admit that I had a wonderful time. The cause is, yet again, a coursework and another deadline.
As usual, the most amazing, unpredictable and unfortunate things can happen near a deadline. If having delays on tube is usual, then you may end up in a train that stops after every two minutes if you need to meet at imminent deadline. If having to queue for printers, or the machine running out of ink is normal, then an abnormal print with mysteriously missing images is a possibility minutes before submission deadline (yeah, it DID happen!!!).
Such were the state of affairs in the last couple of days. Not only that, I (and most others) were spending nights upto 11pm in the lab and getting back early in the morning. Thankfully, the ordeal is over. Those of you aspiring to get in this or related courses, beware that analogue electronics is tough. Not only tough, but a pain!!
Looking back at the past few days when most of us were stuck in that lab, I admit that it wasn’t all that bad. This little period also cultivated good friendships and working relationships among the members of this course, since most of us were always flocked together for many hours. The pictures below are some of the memoirs from the penultimate night (before deadline). Thanks to my coursemate PF for the images.
That’s all for now folks. I need at least a day off and as usual I hope to be regular (which I’m sure I won’t be).
Note: I’ve finallllyyyy updated my About page, in case someone wants to know more about me.
