I was gratified to learn that this years cohort might be known as the “tired” cohort. I have a feeling that I contribute 80% to this perception with my blog posts; it seems like the majority of this group actually gets their 8 hours. Good news! After tonight, I’ll (probably) be able to participate in that well-rested group. But not until after tonight.
Things I want to do once my school work finally ends: Start a new sketchbook. Finally finish Infinite Jest. Learn to make eggs benedict. Picnic at Ledges State Park (only an hour away by bike!).
Today is the last day that I’m going to make a serious, concerted effort towards my memory allocation lab (as an assignment). It’s probably going to exhaust me, especially in regards to tomorrow’s work (of which there will be a lot), but it might be worth it. I think I’ll take the time to understand this lab assignment further this summer, even if I fail it, now. I’m really happy that all my schoolwork is almost done, though. My stress has almost completely evaporated. I’m sure it’ll be replaced, soon, with an incoming flood of REU work, but any interstitial tranquility would be much appreciated.
I’m setting up the Go programming language on my laptop- the last thing I have to do is set the GOPATH, but I don’t actually understand how to do it. Once that’s done, though (and I have a feeling it’s a fairly easy process), I’ll be able to import the libraries that allow the Tello drone to run. If it fails, I think we’ll move on to using Scratch.
I really enjoy keeping this blog. I used to keep a journal, but I mostly learned how circular my thoughts and behaviours are. This blog might be different- in the future, when I look back through it, I hope that I get a clear indication of my personal growth.
