Friday: Spent a lot of time in the C6, watched Paul/Glenn trying to fix some errors. Realized that I’m like a cat: climbing up things is relatively easy, but getting down inspires fear in me. It was interesting to see the mirrors/projectors used to project to the ceiling of the C6. Gabe showed his slighly modified plane game- it was pretty amazing in the C6, although the nodes didn’t always sync up. Later, spent a long time doing “lateral thinking puzzles.” Realized that I like to know the answers to things, but I don’t like expending effort to do so. No progress made in the front of drone research. Finishing the literature review paragraph was difficult, and I want to ensure that our sources are cited correctly.
Saturday: Mostly uneventful: worked on the shirt design, meal prepped for the next week. I’m tired of making American food, so I guess that means I have to go to one of the two Asian stores in the area sometime soon. Read a tiny bit about shaders and continued looking at the drone libraries somewhat futilely. Contemplated the difference between yogurt covered pretzels and white chocolate covered pretzels.
Sunday: Even less productive than the day before. Spent more time thinking about threads/thinking about how little I know about threads and wondering how exactly packets of information are sent/captured by the drones. Realized that networking was important in this respect as well as in creating a swarm of drones. Cue disappointed attitude again. Ate dinner with other interns at a Vietnamese/Chinese place- wondering about its authenticity- and spent some time thinking about sibling-hood and what free will entails.
Ate a mango. More tangy than I would have normally liked, but was still satisfying. I said earlier that time was essentially the only tool my project group had in its disposal, and that time wouldn’t be enough to fully realize the project. I think I was right. We’re almost out of time, and I can’t help but be disappointed in our lack of progress. I also don’t think I learned time management skills.
