Busy, Busy, Busy

Still here - just been busy adapting to my new schedule for school/life.

The sunshine of my life - my daughter - is off to a Girl Scout camping event this weekend (leaving now as I type this) and that leaves me and the Mrs. at homek alone.

Alone? you say? Well, the typical assumption that goes through most people's minds is promptly gone out the window in our case.


Well, I've got my first Neural Networks homework assignment to tackle this weekend and my wife has to study for a "series 6 & 63 securities" exam that will enable her to sell securities here in California. So while we're both agonizing over studying, we'll be fondly looking at each other from across the dining room table....

For the moment, I'm up here at school to take care of a few errands - mostly downloading the data files for my first NN homework assignment since I have no Internet at the house.

More later if there's anything 'exciting'.....

Winter Quarter Starts Monday

The Winter 2007 quarter starts on Monday here at UCSD and I'm getting my stuff ready for it.

This quarter, I'm taking at least two courses - possibly three.

The two I'm definitely taking are ECE 173 Neural Networks & Fuzzy Logic and Physics 161 Black Holes & the Milky Way Galaxy. These are the same two courses I had just started last year when I had the stroke. Obviously, I had to disenroll from them since I was in a medically-induced coma.

The third possible course is HIUS 100 Colonial Period to 1763. I call this one possible as I am enrolled in the class but will have to wait and see if I can indeed pull off taking a full-time classload considering all that I've had to deal with.

The ECE and Physics courses are part of my required classes to obtain my BSEE while the History class is geared towards a possible minor in United States History.

Can Mad Mikey pull this off without incurring another stroke?

We'll have to wait and see.....
