The professor that I was supposed to meet this afternoon wasn’t in his office when I arrived, so I did what seemed appropriate given the situation: I knocked on doors and bugged people until someone helped me out. One of these people was a professor that teaches a mobile graphics course here at Lund. (For those of you who aren’t aware, I’ve spent 8 of the past 12 months working for a mobile gaming company, which involved a lot of work with mobile graphics). Unfortunately, this course has a prerequisite graphics course which I haven’t yet taken. He suggested that I should take his course, and that he would waive the requirements and do his best to make sure I don’t fail like Napoleon. I’ve never been invited into a course before.  I feel all warm and geeky inside. The only hard part is going to be convincing waterloo to let me learn things, instead of just stagnating.  We shall see.

    He wasn’t in his office when he arrived – This reads like a comedy line I thought that all profs did their best to ensure that their students did not fail You did not expect to learn things at university did you? I thought it was to teach you social skills which you cannot develop while sitting in front of a computer

    Typo? What typo?

    You make a very good point, which is why I decided it was time for Sweden. Unfortunately, I can only go so long without sleep, so tonight shall be a night of rest.
