Back to studies

I can not believe it.

Finally the place where I as getting my degree on has now a program just like any other school in the country that is in conformance with the Bolonha guidelines (it is even official).

This will make me go back to school and finish the damn thing. It is also nice because:

  1. each year (in a total of 3 years) has 4 trimesters with 3 modules each, which will enable us, the students, to focus on the subjects much more easily
  2. since I have some modules already complete, I’m only 6 modules away (on the first trimester, the others may vary) from getting my degree
  3. they have a time schedule for students who work as well, such as me
  4. but the best of all is, I will get my dad off of my back. Yes… He’s only doing his job, and he only wants the best for me et al. But being concerned about my future, to saying that I have been waisting my time goes a very long way, and I digress, specially since on the CS side of things, experience goes A VERY LONG WAY, _much longer_ than a degree. As a matter of fact, I am much better of than my high school colleagues that have their Economy/Management degrees, or my college _colleagues_ that have already finished their CS degree. They either have crappy jobs, or are unemployed.

So now the plan is:

  1. continue to evolve on Critical Software and pimp my curriculum vitae even more (yes, I’m getting proud of it :-P)
  2. in 2 years (max 3) finish my CS engineering degree. And yes. My job will still be my top priority.
  3. perhaps getting some management degree to complement my CS knowledge
  4. PROFIT!

    ainda vais acabar primeiro que eu… Bolonha entrou este ano no ISEP… mas ainda está algo confuso…

    uma nota negativa apenas.. para os trabalhadores estudantes à noite…

    com Bolonha é suposto a avaliação ser o mais contínua possível.. e fazerem-se muitas apresentações e trabalhos de grupo…

    ora.. isso não é lá muito compatível com o pessoal… arranjar tempo e oportunidade para se juntarem 2 pessoas que sejam para fazer um trabalho… tem sido muito complicado.. falo por mim e pelos meus colegas :/

    este ano já mandei uma cadeira ao ar por causa disso.. oh well…

    estou contigo.. job.. first priority… o resto.. há-de vir… 🙂

    Força aí!

    Fico feliz por essa nova perspectiva (complementaridade) para o futuro. Parece que o Bolonha realmente tem as suas vantagens… tens tanto trabalhinho pela frente x_X até dói só de pensar… mas tu consegues obviamente com alguns sacrifícios.

    Apoio a 100%, e os papás só querem o nosso bem e muitas vezes têm razão 😉

    I never said you were waisting your time!

    Anyway: you don’t live in Mars but rather here in Portugal were someone without an academic degree has much less opportunities (Socrates quite understood this 😉 ).

    Besides, academic preparation – and let me stress this: to climb the corporate ladder you MUST be prepared to study all your working life – is a major issue: without theory practice will alway be shortsighted.

  4. Dá-lhe man. 😉
    A malta n dormindo, n comendo, n… coise… tem tempo para o trabalho todo. 😛
