As of right now MQP is consuming my entire life. Project presentation day is tomorrow and I still don’t have any results from my experiments to present. Don’t get me wrong, its not like I haven’t been doing work, its just the worms refuse to cooperate. I’m not too worried about tomorrow though. What I […]

Really… how was the Career Fair?  I didn’t go… I came down with the flu the day before, and ended up missing out on it. It’s a good thing that the contact information of the employers is online. I am planning on emailing my resume to them regardless of the fact that I didn’t get […]

Life after graduation could be drastically different. The people who have become your family in the past four years you may not […]

Hey everyone, The Career Fair is this Thursday, so this weekend I took the time to update my resume. The only major edit I had to do on my resume was to add a little blurb about my MQP project. However, that little blurb took a LOT of time. What was the reason? Well the […]
