More Marks

Got an A in Human-Env. I don't have the full mark back from Art and History yet, but on the final test I scored 94% so I'm not too worried about it. Should get an A there at least.

That just leaves Probability Theory. Ugh.

The Google interview

Went very well last week. Had a splendid time chatting with the engineers there and enjoyed a delicious free lunch. I'm hoping I might hear back from them next week or so.

In the mean time Barnes and Noble has shown a bit of interest in dragging me in to work on the Nook products, so we'll see if that goes anywhere, and I'll be keeping my resume spread around just in case none of these current opportunities pan out.

On the less job-searchy side, the flights down and back were a huge pain in the ass. A broken plane and subsequently cancelled flight saw me arrive in San Jose very late, and a delay on the way back had me almost miss my connection in Denver. The flights themselves, once we were in the air, were quite nice though. I sat beside some lovely folk, including, by random chance, Chris Wiesehan, the receiver coach for the Blue Bombers, who was a very nice fellow and quite enjoyable to chat with.

The hotel was splendid, though slightly less scenic than the one in Saratoga that Apple had me in. Visits with friends went quite well, much sushi was eaten, and good times were had by all.

I'm really looking forward to getting this all taken care of so I can move down to California and get myself settled and comfortable.

Oh right, those exams

Forgot to blog about my last two exams last week. They went well enough, plenty well enough to pass at least, and at this point that's all I really care about.

I also got my course mark back from Intro Japanese, and scored myself a nice healthy A (pending approval of grades by the senate and blah blah blah).
