The Weekly Roundup

Its been a pretty busy week college wise. Its nearing Christmas fast so as usual that means Assessments are flying at us think and fast!

So far this week we've had assessments for Database, Computer Hardware, Web Design and weblogs with a few more on the horizon.

Despite it being hard work this week has been good as it actually proves I've learned a lot in the past 4 or so months. Panic stations were activated in Web design when it was announced that the 5 page website had to be presented by next Thursday, especially when i hadn't started it. Somehow i managed to pull through and finish it in a 3 hour session which I'm quite pleased with.

The rest of the week has been spent playing guitar hero(2 & 3) and listening to Kate Nash lots!

The rather awesome video for Kate Nash's new song "Pumpkin Soup"

So as Christmas looms there is only a week of college left before the well deserved break then the start of Block 2. I personally can't wait as it means we get to do lots of different subjects.

Oh and a final note for the attention of Mr Trent Reznor:

Hurry up and tour the UK again!!!!

A Photowalk Round Aberdeen College

We recently did a photo walk of Aberdeen College, here are the results:

The joys(or Horrors) of the 4th floor

The dangers of slow motion Photography..

A poster for Sheep's to help them stop smoking..

The corridor leading to the painting and decorating department

Protection must be worn at all times!

We decided to take the lift..

Someone got murdered...

Even the lifts have rules..

We arrived at the seventh floor..

Then quickly departed down the stairs

We then had a quick drink

Before toying with the idea of switching off Bill Gates empire..

Someone lost their bag in a tree..

This is a true story..

we then went to the ground floor

And found the perfect weapon..

The sight that greets all the newcomers

Reception was busy..

The phone was left off the hook..

We couldn't figure out what this was..

So we took a photo of the lift roof..

It was too quiet

And we felt like we were being watched..

So we ran for the lift

And returned to class.

This was good fun =]

The Weekly Ramble

Another week draws to a close and its now only 19 days till Christmas! I really should start shopping for gifts huh?

The weather has turned pretty rubbish which is to be expected this time of year. If only I lived in somewhere like Florida.

Anyways, this week at college has been okay i guess. In computer hardware we learned how to install RAM. Pretty basic stuff but its really handy to know in case the dreaded computer slowdown happens!

Yesterdays learning consisted of computer programming where we were learning how to write a loop into a program. Although it sounds complex its rather easy. The only bad part of it is the documentation which is time consuming as you have to test every eventuality and document it.

Other than that my weeks been pretty boring. I was supposed to be going to see Marilyn Manson at the weekend but thanks to some major disaster i.e. every single place in Glasgow being fully booked, I had to use the wonders of EBay to make a tidy profit on the tickets.

Ive also suddenly become addicted to The Beatles again. I don't really have to go into detail about them as I'm sure everyone knows the greatness of them.

Anyway must get back to work now
