It’s that time of the year again…exams.
I hate it because…well it sucks, there is so much pressure involved. I also tend to stall and draw blanks when it comes to recalling information in the middle or critical exams so I don’t preform so well either.
To be perfectly honest it’s also the time of the year where I realise how much work I haven’t been doing and how much I have to stress just to catch up to pass the exams.
Unfortuanly Universities find that the best why to judge if a student should pass to the next level is to put them under pressure and test how much knowldege they can retain. Which sounds reasonable unless you are hopeless at exams, just like me.
I guess it’s all supposd to be worth it in the end, get a job that I always wanted and life the life that I have been craving.
The end of the road is so far away it’s a hazy.
I do have one thing to look forward to, and that is my overseas trip.
Also I wouldn’t mind a job here: Google hiring like it’s 1999
Google added 800 employees, bringing its global work force to 4,989. That’s more than triple the total from just two years ago.
“They don’t even have to recruit, it’s so hot,” said Stephen Arnold, author of “The Google Legacy: How Google’s Internet Search is Transforming Application Software.” “I gave a keynote recently in Nimes (France) followed by someone from Google and right in front of my eyes three people went up to him and said, ‘How can I get hired at Google?'”
Of course, there have been more than a few high-profile hires. Google picked up controversial computer scientist Kai-Fu Lee, whose hiring away from Microsoft landed Google in court, and Internet pioneer Vint Cerf, who co-designed the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) and previously worked for MCI.
