Boo ya, Saturday done and one final botched. Bring it on. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
Awwwww, I'm sure you didn't botch your final Est.
I've still got all my finals coming up. Monday begins the madness!
My school doesn't have majors - there's no required curriculum so instead you sort of pick-and-choose your credits and if they add up to more than a certain amount in one subject, you're considered to have a focus in that area. So I'm working on a BS in computer science and biology/ecology (depending on how I pick up my remaining life science credits.) This is my third year - I've got at least one more, but if I do two and have a year each of comp. sci. and bio. stuff, then I get Bachelor's of Arts and Sciences, kind of like a two-for-one type of degree.
I've found the math of computer science to be a joy. It's much more fun than calculus or trigonometry or the other grade-school calculational maths. If you're interested in programming and not sure about the math, you should take a look at a book on finite state machines and automata theory. I love that stuff, but I'm also a huge dork. Last year, I did a full year of formal logic and automata theory, and I found it way, way easier than what I'm doing this year. This year I'm taking real, math-for-math's-sake math; abstract algebra, real analysis and set theory. Computer science is much more comforting than all the other math I've done, because I have concrete things like programs and printouts to work with... it's nowhere near as stressful as pen-and-paper mathematics.
But anyways, you really don't need programming skills to get a job developing video games... nowadays there are more than just software developers working on games. Designers, artists, writers, management types - even voice actors are all integral to the business now, and none of them have to touch a lick of code.

I got little tiny bug feet / I don't really know what bugs eat /
Don't want no one steppin' on me / Now I'm sympathizin' with fleas /
Livin' like a bug ain't easy / Livin' like a bug ain't easy... o//~
You have a good point about the gaming industry Seedjar. That's why I'm thinking about maybe getting a degree in something like English so I could possibly be a story writer on a game team.
I'm years past my last finals experience, and I sure remember them! Like JimScott, I still sometimes have those awful dreams where you can't find the classroom, or read your notes. Hope you all did well and enjoy winter break.
My worst finals were for my archaeology classes. Identifying 2000 year old pot shards to within 10 years! Yeeck! But I still enjoyed my time at university.
My midterms are Thursday & Friday. And for some reason I get out at 2 on Wednesday too. No idea why. But I'm fine with that. Hey, that means lunch is earlier so I don't have to miss lunch when I check out at 1 for my orthodontist appointment (getting my braces off finally after over three years either then or the appointment after that)... I was POed for a long time that i had to leave at 1 because I was gonna miss lunch, but then I found out I won't miss lunch and I was haaappy.

I just back from my math final, I just needed 6 corrects out of 28 to get a passing grade. I know I got more than 12+ answers correct [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]. Now on wednesday, I have another exam...lame [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_o_32.gif[/img]
