Metadata monotony...

I'm bored out of my mind. I have 1 and a half assignments left...and that half an assignment is bumming me out (the other one should go pretty quickly - it's really a shared assignment with my group member). Basically I'm writing a paper explaining metadata/folksonomies to common people (you know, all of you). I hate writing papers (which I have probably stated before). But if you want to know what metadata/a folksonomy is...let me know. I'll let you read my crap paper when it's done.

To break up the monotony I accidentally bought a whole lot of yarn online (it was on clearance!). I'm hoping to make a million pairs of socks (watch out - you too, will be getting socks for Christmas...).

I haven't really been allowing myself to do anything fun the last few days (besides that little bit of online shopping)...and it has worked out. But I'm so tired of school...

  1. ugh, well, good job to you, you are almost done. i feel your pain. i have been not quite as disciplined as you this weekend, and still have quite a bit left to do - one assignment really does feel like it is DRAINING my soul - but take heart, we both shall prevail, and soon, we can each loaf to our heart's content.

    i finally got comments back from my prof on friday night; they were helpful but anything you wait five weeks for is kind of a let down, i think, unless it is on the level of HP7 or something. :)

    so, that just leaves somewhere between five and ten task flows, depending on how scrupulous I am, a crapload of adjusted wireframes; one usability study write-up paper, and five bright-and-shiny css-laden pages to make up my new web site.

    i haven't been letting myself work on the css and whatnot until i get more of the other done, because i actually enjoy those, and i think the only way to finish the other is to make it conditional.

    good luck!!

    back to the grind ...
