Man, how is it possible for each new semester to have infinitely more stuff to do. I'm so busy, I think I'm almost at the point where there aren't enough hours in a day to even tell me all the stuff I need to do. And you're telling me there's another one coming? Jeez :S
Am I looking forward to next semester? Definitely not to the massive amounts of work I'll be doing. But the work that I will be doing is looking pretty sweet. I'm currently working on instrumenting the Snap visual programming interface to log its usage, and on recording audio from student pairs using the Kinect to distinguish speakers; the studies and publications for next semester will be a product of my labor with Snap and the Kinect. As for coursework, I should be almost done.... Right? What I do know is that I plan to take Dr. Min Chi's special topics course on Machine Learning for User-Adaptive Systems (if that's what the abbreviation User-Adap stands for), and I hope that it would count toward my missing 700 level course requirement.
Academic-wise, there isn't much else I can think of. Now game-wise, let me tell you.... What, I'm out of time? But I was just getting to the good stuff! *Sigh* Well, send me an email or something and we'll talk games :D
