Never, NEVER GIVE UP!

Salams :)

I can't help not to update my blog. You know, experts say that writing journals is a good way to relieve stress. Yes, this is the third time I'm stressing out this point. It's a healthy way of life and lets you put values into things that happen in your life.

Oh, do you know what's behind the question "Is the glass half-full or half-empty?"
It's actually a simple indicator test whether you are an optimist or pessimist...
I don't know how true it is, but I guess most EQ tests will ask that question...
Hmm...
I had always answered the question 'half-empty' though.. *sighh** and for some reason, I still prefer to answer that question that way, I just think it's more logical...
Even though I already know that only pessimists answer that question that way...

Anyways,
I received a very inspiring key-chain on Tuesday. It says:

NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP!

Thanks very much! Barakallahu fik!

Hmm... Final exam is very near...

STUDY HARD FOR THE FINALS!
YEAH!

This week was a hectic week.
And I'm having a very stubborn visitor @ enemy since Wednesday. It just kept attacking and didn't want to leave.
That headache.

And I lost today. I can't stand the pain, I left my 4-hour C++ programming presentation class while it was going on, I had presented my project, but because I left, there's a big probability that I'll lost my 8% presentation marks out of the 2 credit hours for this C++ programming subject. THAT IS A LOT.
You see, I just don't understand why does Programming gets only 2 credits while Calculus gets 3 credits,,, even though it is very clear that engineers don't use Calculus in their working life at all - well, except for those who are going into R&D... And I've never heard of any engineering student who loves Calculus more than any other subject.
Anyways, I didn't want to go to the clinic, because I went to the clinic twice this week - another frequent visitor popped up a couple of months ago. Allergy. But I don't know what yet.
But anyway, Mom agreed to write a letter for me to the programming lecturer. And I have to re-convince my lecturer that I didn't just leave the class for no reason. I don't think that will be an easy task, but I'll give it a try.
Allah knows best, He knows everything that happens, and He is the Ultimate Judge, the Most Wise, the Most Fair...

C coding..
printf("Please enter ma'assalama to end this entry...\n);
scanf("%s",end);
if (strcpy(end,ma'assalama) == 0);
break;

Output:
Please enter ma'assalama to end this entry...
ma'assalama
Press any key to continue
