The pain and suffering that is known as CP1
When I was browsing through my folders on my computer, I happened to have found an interesting video. This video was a time lapse video that a friend of mine took during uni back in 2005. During the 2nd semester of uni, I had this subject called Computing Project 1 (CP1) and it required you to form a group and work on a project for either the university, or an actual client.
My role in the group was documentation and testing. None of the other guys wanted to do documentation so I opted for it. Now within the final week of the project, and the deadline coming up, every group was behind in EVERYTHING from documentation, coding, etc. So what my group and a few others decided to do was stay overnight in the CP1 labs and work on our projects. I of course decided to stay for 5 days and 5 nights. Yep, you read that right. I did not return home for 5 days so I could work on the documentation. But of course my friend stayed only 3 nights but left his computer for 4 nights. So the video below starts from midday Tuesday till late Friday afternoon.
Now you are probably thinking what a nut. Well yes, I was rather insane in doing it but it had to be done. Simply if I was at home, I would have gotten NO WORK DONE AT ALL. Well lucky for me that I could drive and I could head out to buy food, but even more lucky to know that there are showers in the building that the labs are in. Normally these showers are for the uni staff who stay overnight as well.
Though it wasn’t all just work and sleep. There were hours of catching up on anime, playing Quake 4, still having to goto my other classes, and help out with the anime club. Food wasn’t a bad thing either, I either went to the shopping mall or drive to a relatives restaurant. But by the end of the week I was absolutely stuffed. I just wanted to get the hell out of there and sleep on a proper bed. The whole thing was indeed an experience though I could probably see myself doing something similar when I get a full-time job, but that depends on the job lol.
