June 1 – 3: Finishing things

J has been taking a free online class in Python this spring through MIT’s OpenCourseWare program. He’s been mostly enjoying the learning, I think, but it’s been stressful because he has a long commute, so between that and the class, he hasn’t felt like he’s had a lot of free time. But today he took his final exam, and he passed the class. Which is super exciting for two reasons. One, he wasn’t sure that he was going to pass, since he’d stopped taking the class very seriously a couple of months ago. So it’s great that he still managed to pass it. And two, it’s really exciting for both of us that he’s going to have more free time. Hopefully that means we’ll be able to plan more fun things to do together this summer.
