14.10.2004 – Thursday 14 October – Shaun of the Dead
- • Another exciting day of fun and study, but that is not all. Today, Maz, Clint, Clus and I went to the movies. We drove all the way to Indooroopilly, and saw “Shaun of the Dead”. The movie is a successful synthesis of British humour and American gore, managing to be both amusing and entertaining, and ranks around three quarters of a True Lie, although being incomparable and all makes such a ranking difficult to decide upon. After the movie, I started on my COMP2801 time management reflection, and that ends the uni portion of my day.
- • I had a chat with Soon today. She has been asked to take COMP1800 next year, and plans to offer it second semester. She asked if I would be interested in tutoring again, which I said I was, and that I’m interested in helping redevelop the course, should she require any assistance. I also went and had a chat with Philip Machanick about what I should do. The way I see it, I have three options – continue with my current three year IT degree and try to get a job at the end, continue with my current degree and do honours, or switch to another, possibly dual, degree or a degree from another university. After a chat with Philip, the general consensus (within myself) is that I will continue with IT here at UQ, and consider honours at the end of next year, unless I have a good job offering instead. There seems to be little point in changing to a dual degree without a specific and applicable goal in mind, and it is hard to justify the extra time a dual IT degree with something such as computer systems or electrical engineering would take.
