And the hardship is truly paid off :)

Last night I had a chat with Melissa, my senior at the B-IT, and she informed me that she had just fetched her Convergent Networks seminar certificate as well as mine. I was very surprised when she informed me my grade: 1.0. So cool 😀

This seminar subject really made me pay so much time and attention throughout the entire winter semester (last semester). It’s only 4 ECTS, but I felt like doing a 10 ECTS-course. I read around 15 RFCs (RFC 793 was a real pain for me 😦 ) and several papers related to TCP congestion control mechanisms, and I spent around 15 hours a week to focus on it. But I enjoyed it and finally the hardship is paid off 🙂

This result reminds me Wenjing’s words several weeks ago. She said something like: “When we get a good grade to a particular course, it doesn’t always mean that we are smart. It means we’ve spent much time and attention to it”. I guess she’s right 🙂

    Thanks… Yes, it’s the seminar that I conducted on Valentine’s day (fortunately it’s the only seminar I need to conduct throughout the whole programme 😀 ).
    If your hypothesis is correct, I should give longer names to my children then… haha….

    Beste Grüße,
