Hyperopia

The New York Times Magazine had its annual year in ideas issue this past sunday – one of my favorites was Hyperopia, which is the idea that in the short term, one feels guilty for not getting enough “stuff” done, but over the long term, one looks back and wishes he or she had more fun back then.

This is on my mind as I finish off a class (man machine system design) where I really haven’t learned much and the assignments are so long that the professor has to be a sadist of some kind, as I try to figure out what I’ll take next semester (the evening class pickings are lame) and why I’m getting a master’s degree in computer science the first place.

One thought on “Hyperopia”

  1. MMmmmm, I’m looking forward to reuniting with Dr. Hannon for enp161 in the spring! Or maybe the Databases class.

    Anyway, hang in there buddy.
