The more I deal with Joe, the more I dislike him.

See, I just noticed this forum article recently, and I think that's just below the belt. People DO take some downtime over that break, people DO have more to do than just his course.

Of course, we then come to the basic crux of the software engineering modules in compsci. It's the course that will take up most of your time, and it's obvious that Joe expects that. He seems to expect that we will be working at home, and everywhere else with regard for little else but his course. That comment is just sarky.

So, I'm in a lab now, and meant to be working on all sorts of things. Actually, I'm not meant to be in this lab at all, and there's a practice c++ exam on, so once I keep to myself, it should be ok.

BUT, Joe decides to open the door and shout to us "Everybody working hard?" - the words I harbour for him right now are not pleasant. The reason? I was in the middle of doing some Java code, and reading some Javadocs to explain how something worked. He interupted my stream of thought. Not only that, but he just interupted a practical exam - while there isn't "exam" written on the door, there is a timetable marking it out as a lab for another subject. One would think he'd be more considerate of such things. Instead he stood in the doorway grinning like a prize idiot, as if awaiting adoration for his trickster ways, until Abey politely told him that we were meant to have exam conditions.

Joe really doesn't seem to understand that people have 3 other compsci courses (if 2nd year), or 4 other (if 3rd year) to deal with... and that we *do* actually need to do work for those other courses...
I'm starting to really dislike this time of year, it just seems to be one big squish to get work done and it's horrible. And because we've got so much continuous assessment to do we can't even start studying properly until the projects are all in, which only gives a couple of solid study weeks. Gahhhhhhhh.
