Migration, Summer Holidays, etc..

So, Windows Live Spaces has given users the option to migrate to WordPress. I’ve moved (evidently) and am liking the sense of sophistication and simplicity it brings about. There’s been a lot of activity since I last updated my blog, and I apologise wholeheartedly for the delay. I’d like to say I’ve been really busy, but that’d be an understatement! Allow me to explain…

My last post consisted of complaints regarding my main laptop’s hard drive failing. I didn’t send it to HP support, I ended up buying a SATA drive and doing it myself. After a while, all was fine and the laptop’s been fighting fit to this date. I did well on the aforementioned coursework in case anyone was wondering, and around the end of term, Imperial College Union ran their elections and the new Editor In Chief of Felix was elected. I acquired the position of News Editor as a result, and have been working very hard with the chief in order to keep the news running smoothly every week.

Around the date when students had to move out of halls, I received a phone call. This was a followup call made because of an internship I’d applied to. They offered me an interview! I was cautiously excited at this point, and proceeded to enjoy my day with the good news. That night, at 5am, we had a fire alarm lasting about an hour, and another at 11am the next day. It was safe to say I didn’t sleep well.

The next Friday, I found that I actually got an internship position! The summer holidays arrived, and I commuted every day. My roles were very diverse, and in the end, I was given a job offer!

In other news, I passed first year quite well, and I’m enjoying the course so far this year. We’re learning about Compilers, having to write one for a freshly designed programming language which seems to have come straight out the likes of Alice In Wonderland.

The last few weeks, I’ve been sending out E-mails which I once received in my days as a news reporter last year, polling my contributors for articles and writing some more. Right now? I’m running an exclusive, practically an exposé, on something going on in my department which I won’t disclose yet. To those who can, read it in next week’s Felix!
