Bluh I’m so tired right now, but hey, at least we’re going to have another great night again tonight!
So we went to school early, to present our projects’ products to our class. Later today there would be a “second round”, so to speak, in which we would have to present it for a jury and people who might be interested in our stuff. So we (or rather, one randomly chosen member of our team) presented it and everything, and it went pretty okay, but some folks had better ideas. Sadly, a conspiracy had formed against our team for some reason.
At the end we got to vote for the best team, and that team’d get a place in the second round. Of course nobody wanted to get nominated, since then you’d have to wait, like, five hours for the second round to start, and you’d have to do the presentation again and everything. The other teams banded together and all voted for us. Some people said they would’ve done so anyway, since our idea was pretty neat (a keyboard that generated electricity), but eh, that got us into the second round.
I (partially) volunteered to do the second presentation, and I did a pretty damn good job if I do say so myself. However, we ended up last. LAST. Even behind those dudes whose funny accents was pretty much the only thing going for ’em. Why? Well, the jury thought keyboard would become obsolete in ten years, and we could’ve done the same with shoes (which was outside of the scope, since that wouldn’t be very IT-y), yadda yadda.
Still, I believe we ended up last because all the other teams made “apps” to go with their project, or even made it revolve around that. It’s sickening how hyped the whole “app” thing is, and it’s just ugh, but more on that later.
For now, I’ll go and be fucking tired but have a great night with friends nonetheless.
