Day 42: MCA presentations

Yep, today was the day of MCAs. We all worked on our MCAs because today was a big day. In fact, since nothing else happened, I’ll skip to that.

It was supposed to be at 2:00 PM, but when that time came around, there was nobody telling us what to do. I wasn’t sure what was going on until we were told that the C6 wasn’t working and it would start 45 minutes later. No offense, but I think that my roommate had the best thing. It was a game where you could explore different environments. My favorite one was Boston in the winter (but then he told me it was actually Canada. I’m still not sure). Also, I think my zombie game was fun. I liked seeing everybody’s reactions. The annoying thing is that the Vive doesn’t always work, which sucks because you’re supposed to have two guns and only one controller works. The problem was we couldn’t vote for our own group (even though we technically did different things, but I guess it’s a way of splitting up the votes. Then again, there are voting systems that already fix this problem) so I voted for the 3D printing group since one of them made a Klein bottle. I only did it because I couldn’t imagine how you would make one in SolidWorks and I had to give them something for it(and no, it’s not because I’m a mathematician). When the votes where tallied up, we won! Then, the score was changed and the C6 group won. I’m pretty it’s only because they’re cheating and had a fancy $8,000,000,000,000,000.00 freaking supercomputer to help them. Also, lots of us apparently did our presentations wrong. Apparently, I was supposed to talk about my challenges and experiences. What? I didn’t know that! I thought we were supposed to discuss our final result! Why didn’t anyone tell me this before? Actually, lots of us weren’t really sure what we were supposed to have done anyways. Only the 3D printing group knew and I don’t know how they knew. You know, I remember that one of our mentors did show me an email because I asked her what I was supposed to present. First of all, I guess I misunderstood what she told me because my presentation was wrong. Second, I kind of wish I had asked to be forwarded that email. Well, it’s too late, but at least my game was awesome. Here’s a link to it in case you didn’t get a chance to play it.

After work, we got some tea. I actually didn’t drink any because I don’t like teas of any kind, but it was a nice little walk. After that, I worked with my group on our presentation. We’re pretty much done already. I’m glad we’re getting stuff done, even if I feel that we’re not getting things done quickly enough.
