Marzo me gustó, pa’ no bloguear.
I haven’t blogged since monday. Much of it is that Liliana and I have an argument; but another reason is this stupid rule of writing in english until I finish the translation for WordPress. It’s hard for me to write in english; and then I write slower than in spanish; and then I dont’t enjoy it so much. And this week I haven’t had the time to finish the translation.
I finished the job at TMM. The application looks good, and monday I will have one last meeting. After that, my pimps are going to pay me. Or so they say…
I got three job offers: one is to stay with my pimps. That’s the easiest one; I could ask for a raise, and they tell me that maybe I can do the work in my house; which is über cool. However, and being totally honest, they promise a lot and do not that so much, so… and I don’t know when I will start in thtat supposed work.
The other is from a company that seems to be doing things that I like: Linux, MySQL, PHP, Java, etc. Down side? They seem to be focusing in Software Engineering and windows software to deal with that (Relational Rose, that kind of stuff). I don’t have anything against Software Engineering (bullshit: I do); but I can’t stand people that thinks that an UML diagram and their use-cases will give them salvation. At the end of the day you need pretty good programmers, and if you don’t have that, all the by-the-book Software Engineering that you throw at it will not save your sorry ass.
And, at least until now, all the people (specially at corporations) that advocate for by-the-book Software Engineering seems to do that to avoid the hiring of really good programmers.
The third option is with Vaz. And I don’t know what to think about it.
However, I really want a one-week vacation. Because I need to catch up with my teacher’s responsibilities.
I’ve been very busy with my classes. Computer Theory is a tough subject, and although we are in the easy part, I need to sit down and study a little before I give my class. I haven’t finished reviewing the firts homework, and they already give me the second one, and I give them the third one, so if I don’t organize my self, I could accumulate a lot of work. And I miss tuesday class.
But my classes are coming out nicely, and I think the students are understanding me. Or so they say.
Maistro is taking longer, and I need to set up the page pronto. I need to give the students their firts laboratory practice, and I need the page for that. I also need to set up several mailing lists. That will keep me busy this week.
Yesterday I eat with Juan, Omar and Enrique, and we do it at the door of a classroom, because Omar and Juan were doing an exam to their students. We have a cool time, and today I will go with them to the Sheraton Hotel; there is some kind of University show off (or something), and a guy from Waterloo invited me since January. And if Enrique and Omar go, maybe they will feel motivated to start thinking about their applications.
I’ve been catching up with Dawson’s Creek; last week I barely see any episode, because of Conacyt. With pain and suffering I was able to pass through the break up of Joey and Pacey, and now I’m at the begining of the fifth season. I’m not sure if I really want to keep seeing it; it’s even boring sometimes. But I will try; there are some chapters scattered through this two last seasons that shows cool things about Joey and Pacey (or so they say), and I don’t want to miss them.
Liliana and I talked and fixed things. We really want to be with each other… not that it’s easy, but we want to try. It’s just that sometimes is harder that others.
