Go Sac State CM DBIA Team! Beat Auburn and Colorado State!
Still hectic on the job front. Have I ever reminded you that the quality of the job offers you receive once you graduate depend on whether or not you had an internship? It's true.

What's Going on In Classes
Laptop is still in the shop, but world domination cannot stop due to technical difficulties. Sac State CM perseveres. At least it does in my classes...
CM 121: Yo, check this out: I graded the Concrete SOG/Wall lab! Only took 2 months (a new record). This week we'll discuss progress on Goodyear. We'll also cover interior work for Goodyear (partitions, ceilings). In lecture we'll talk about finishes and maybe some MEP if I'm feeling aggressive. After this week, we may deviate from the original schedule and launch into McKinley Park Tennis Courts early.
CM 124: Not sure what's going on. Actually, that's a lie, Gareth and I talked about it. But I'm going to let him break the news.
CM 126: Monday's presentations will be will be courtesy of Ryan Malli and Mike Zenk. Wednesday is courtesy of Josias Nadal a and George Karavan. Aside from their presentations, Monday's class will finish up our condo on project risks. By Wednesday, I hope to revive the case studies and get you another one. I think I promised this last week as well. I'm blaming this week on standard time...
I teach people who will be building our country's infrastructure.
