It’s Friday. Yay. —Or so it would have been if it hadn’t been raining. The rain started the morning badly. I got my shoes and socks all wet on my way here. I had to hop over streams and puddles while navigating through parking lots because before I rode the bus to VRAC, I had to walk to one of the office buildings in front of my apartment in order to get my check. It didn’t help that I went to the wrong building first until I texted my internmates. It was then that one of them responded that it was the one further down the street— not the one directly in front of my dorm like I was told. This only led to more walking and getting my shoes even more wet. But hey! I finally got my check after 2+ weeks chilling in a file cabinet and I was able to make it to VRAC on time. So that’s a win.
At VRAC, we finally met in our deeper dive groups. I finally got the opportunity to study more in depth the field of technology I for a long time have been wanting to work with. Gaining the opportunity to work in the VR field was the main reason I applied to SPIRE and even though I did not originally get put in one of the two VR research project groups, I’m happy things came around and I get to work on VR regardless. —It’s not to say that I’m not happy working on the Ballistics project, which I am very content with by the way. Rather, I just always wished I could take a more active role in the VR field by working directly in it.
