Winter break--I can almost taste it! I've one last exam on Tuesday and at 11am I don't have to study anything again until mid January!


This past semester I pulled a 120% courseload and it left me with absolutely ZERO time for a social life, outside of a quick visit from the girlfriend each week, let alone any kind of hobby!

This past Tuesday and Wednesday I had three exams in a 28h period and THAT sucked!! But here I am, I've been studying for two days, and tomorrow, for my last final exam... but I've hit this wall where I just can't stop looking up funny pictures of cats, and I thought I'd post here about my happiness!

Projects that I have to get done include the following;
Three-board Beta22 headphone amp (including the Sigma22 PSU)
Marantz 7 clone
Marantz 300DC resto
Pioneer QA-800A resto for the girlfriend (for Christmas--she asked for it!!)

Unfortunately I won't have access to a shop until early January so it's all electronics work and no machining until then.

Bah, ranting... I'm just SO excited to have this semester behind me!

Congratulations , hopefully your marks are a reflection of how hard you tried. Maybe they will be good enough to land you the job that will give you the time and cash to build all the DIY equipment you could ever want to!

Damn I miss finals period. That was always so much hell but so much fun at the same time. Studying with friends, all of us freaking dying, sleeping in the library on the floor, sneaking in food, etc.

Quick update; this past semester was my best yet mark-wise!

Christmas break found me buttoning up my Scott 222C restoration, but crazy-long lead time left me without some key parts to move forward with the beta22. Had a good break all the same!
