I didn't get to sleep in today. The phone woke me. The phone call, from IBM woke me. The phone call from IBM offering me a job woke me. Actually, the phone call from IBM offering me three jobs woke me. So I didn't mind being woken up. :)

Seriously, I am quite jazzed about this. I have to decide now between ECD (E-Commerce Development), DB2 Tools Development, or Application Development Technology. The offer's the same any way I choose to slice it, and it's a pretty attractive offer I think, coming straight outta undergrad. The offer from Eyal (my psych prof) still beats it by about $20k, but there are a lot of other benefits to working with IBM. I have 2 weeks to choose.

Three days left in school, and in them I have to mark two batches of assignments, write a test, an exam, a knowledge rep. assignment, and a 50% term paper (which I should start). It's going to be lotsa fun - but that's okay - I derive some perverse joy from making my brain sweat. Months later, when I look back on what I did, I will say, as I always do, "I wrote THAT? I couldn't write that now - where did I get that from?"

Courses finishing up is kind of a shame - I had several very cool profs this semester, but on the other hand, sleep - long, undisturbed sleep, will be ever so sweet.
