I've been spending a lot of energy on my studies this week, especially the weekend. I can now successfully remember what CPUs fit into Slots 1&2; Sockets 370, 1, 2, 3, 4 &5, Slot A and Socket A. Sounds easy...but, I can assure you, it most certainly isn't.
We have been doing the course for over 9 months now and it's been a hard slog. It is now time, we've realised, for the final push. It's quite exciting, in a way. I know that I tend to be a certificate-collector but this is one course that I genuinely feel that I've worked for. If I pass, I'll be happier than with any other certificate that I've ever worked towards, even if it confirms that I am, in fact, a "geek".
When I finished my degree, I was signed up to do an MSc in Computer Science in Cambridge. I try not to think about how differently my life would have panned out if I'd taken that option instead of coming back down to Cornwall. Chances are, I wouldn't have met up with Kirsty again, or developed the wonderful friendships I now have. You can't live your life by "what-if's" or "maybes". But you can live it being thankful for the now. :-)
