My last Respects to SEN

"All the good things come to an end"-this is a sayin I know
but right now i like to quote with conviction that "All bad things come to an end too"

Today was the day of evaluation for SEN, the day i've dreaded from the time this sem had started. boy! have i had nightmares about this day. but given the anxiety,tension and the jerks that i've gone through, the final feelin of satisfaction that i'm experiencing is worth it all. for starters this was the kind course where ur project decided it all, the attitude of the prof teachin the course wasnt helpful either, and considering this was my first time workin with 9 ppl in a group on a project that cud make or break ur grade, i was sure feelin nervous.

For the past 3-4 months nothin has concerned me more than meeting the project deadlines and finishin the project. hell! i even went to the extent of bunking lectures,dumpin assignments etc, jus to get the work done. and i think i've seen it all when it comes to operatin in a group for we were a pretty motley crew,be it the soarin tempers, the loud arguements, the cheesy jokes,the overenthusiasm or the clumsiness in doin the work. Each fella had his own probs this sem and each had his own agendas on the course. to think that we actually put aside the differences to complete this project itself reflects the kinda commitment the guys showed when it came to the project. For the members of my grp "Hats off to u fellas. for u've all impressed me in ur own way". these guys have shown that when pushed to the wall they r willin to go all the way to achieve the goal. hey! now iam actually filled with a sense of sadness there wont be any latenight SEN meetins or Code brainstormin sessions. seems like i've lost a major cause for work
but more importantly no more BAKAR.

and Boy! today crowned it all, the range of emotions i went through just cant be put into words. i must confess it was a pretty close shave with disaster we had today and we somehow managed to pull it off at hais breadth. gawd! we were still tinkerin with the code when the bakarjee was jus 10 feet away, by the time he had arrived at the terminal we had barely managed to set up a picture perfect environ. i think everyone in the group must've been keepin his fingers crossed when we started giving the demo prayin that the code pulls through for this one hour of pure anxiety. but i think the prof had his own plan in mind, for i suspect he had already singled out whom to grill based on a peer review we had given in class this morning. and iam lucky to be in the gud books of my grp members so all i had to do was to casually observe the proceedings and intrude when neccesary. i cant say wats the profs impression of me or the grade that he might give me, but who the hell cares now. its all over dude, no more nightouts on JSP validations or Doc reviews, me gonna watch some F.R.I.E.N.D.S and catch some much needed sleep and start anew a life without SEN, a life that has one less worry and that has other issues to grapple with

i wud like to dedicate this to my grp mates,bakarjee and the course SEN
so "My Last Respects To SEN"
