My spare time is minimal as of late. The discussions that take place in my Artificial Intelligence class have been nothing short but interesting but they are getting more and more in depth. And I love it. I love how the professor goes off on a tangent so often that somehow his little tidbits end up being related to the topic at hand. I love classes that are engaging and that are structured to invoke conversation and debate and collaboration.
But while my professor is asking me to go deeper within my mind and come up with the unimaginable, so is my job. Today had to be the most demanding day that I’ve ever had so far. I was originally told to go one route and then all of a sudden I was instructed to do something completely different–AND to have it completed by tomorrow. Go ahead and pray for me.
I spent the entire day coding and debugging in a language that I am not too comfortable with at all. But today’s challenge couldn’t care less about my doubts or reservations about it. And well, I can say that I’ve gotten most of it done and there’s a good chance that I’ll be finished on tomorrow.
So I haven’t sank yet. Every day I’m learning to just dive in and make my way to the surface. I’m digging deep within myself to find whatever it is my interviewers and professors and family and friends see and saw in me to pray me to this very moment in my life. I’m digging deep to find those attributes and I’m allowing them to surface. And it’s working.
I pushed past my worries today and I had success. SUCCESS. Today was a great day! I hope it was for you guys as well.
