almost back to classes

So in case none of my loyal readers have noticed I haven't posted anything in the last few weeks. This is because three weeks ago was tenth week. Which meant I had to do a 78 page paper. Two weeks ago was final's week which meant I had to take a final Monday at 8 am and Friday at 4 pm. Last week was Thanksgiving so I had to drive 350 miles home and then 150 miles to Thanksgiving dinner and 150 back. So all and all it was a rather long month. Next week classes start again, so I thought it would be a good idea to get some postings in before another quarter flies by.

Now this upcoming quarter is going to rock on toast. One of the coolest thing about being a fourth year is the classes I'm taking are all so complicated sounding that it takes me twenty minutes to explain them to my family.
The two classes I'm most excited about are Industrial Organization and Genetic Algorithms. IO is a class that actually teaches a little bit of Game Theory, which iis going to be one of the hottest fields in a few years. The other class genetic algorthims helps use a computer's massive proccessing power to solve problems. So until the quarter starts I am just going to kick back and relax
