Well... you guys are almost half way done with the semester... I hope you are picking up some useful information from all your lectures. Now is a good time to start thinking of the practical applications of everything that you are learning. Of course it goes unsaid that I would like to hear all your thoughts on how to utilize these new skills.
We are making good progress so far... just make sure you guys make these midterms count. Some days the work tends to get overwhelming... and the instructions seem to take you back to square one. Don't let these petty things get in your way to accomplish what you are all destined to achieve. Stay focused.
Enjoy what you're doing... and best of luck with your midterms. :)
