Welcome back, before we go any further just want to answer some of your questions right from the start
- Yes I know what daily means.
- No I haven’t gotten anymore organized since we last spoke
- Yes I have given up on eating healthy
- And of course, no my ethernet still isn’t up
Now that we’ve past all of that, lets get into whats been happening the last 3… maybe 4 days since we last spoke. I’m looking at my phone images and I don’t see many new photos other than internet memes, so it would seem that I haven’t done much socializing this weekend. The last images I have are from when me and my peers went out to get pizza and Tee last picture took my phone and snuck some pictures as you can see. Pretty good time, I got way too large of a pizza and it’s still sitting in my fridge, where it will stay for a couple more weeks till I throw it away hope my roommates don’t read these.
Other than that, now that I have too much free money too burn, I’ve been looking into new ways of depleting my reserves. For the time that seems to be concert tickets as it turns out a lot of performers are coming to Penn State next semester and I gotta be in on all the pop-culture. Kevin Hart, J Cole, Justin Timberlake, and Elton John that last one might not count as pop-culture are all coming and I’m trying to decide on who I should get tickets to see. That along with finding out who I’m going with and how cheap seats should I buy have been taking up most of my weekend along with Fortnite. My bank account looking at me like ⬇
More about work, we got a little deeper into our “Deeper Dives” sorry for the pun and we’ve gotten to the point where I have to be creative and come up with something that I want to do and work on, which is proving difficult as expected. But talking to the instructor Alex, we came up with something together that involves 3D printing stands for gaming and controller hardware, whcih I’m interested in, and we’re combining it with some AR software that he already has developed. Not really sure how this is all going to work, but it sounds interesting so I’ll go with it for the time.
Research project talk, not sure where to start with this one. Seems like we’re taking a bit of a pivot from what my initial understanding of the project was and how we were going to run our experiment. That’s not the largest issue though, I would say the largest problems are technical as well as literature based, which you know is just 90% of what we’re doing. I haven’t really wanted to mess with the technical problems as much as the rest of my group, but I’m starting to feel some annoyance coming from my other group members because of that, so I might have to start learning new things wish me luck. I suppose I haven’t really been getting enough work done on the literature review paper to warrant that being one of my only tasks so it probably for the best I need to start working on that thing harder too. It really feels like I can finally see all the pieces that will bring the project together, but there’s so many and there so scattered and in disarray, I hope we can just get enough of it together to be presentable at this point. There’s still time though so maybe I’m just a pessimist who needs to work harder.
On that note, here’s a comic that feels really relevant for me right now hopefully ya’ll will get the joke.
