I came to school on a reading day because I have a group project to work on. The meeting doesn’t start for another hour so I’m just going over my AI notes because I need to catch up on the material. Please excuse the mess. I work best with everything all over the place.

Team messy notes 2015. My mind was blown away during this lecture. Honestly, some of the algorithm solutions for simple problems like finding the two closest points in a plane, are extremely interesting. But it hurts my head knowing that I have to come up with solutions like these…

It’s early morning and I’m trying to do some of my assignment that I should have started over the weekend but I was working on a group project instead. I really should learn to manage my time better. I’m a little bit bitter because my professor moved the deadline of the project from this week to next week late last night. I could have spent my time on my assignment instead! I guess you can’t do much about stuff like this…

Finally Imported Those Old Posts

Sep 27, 2015 | Comments

So now that I’ve moved hosts, I decided to do some spring cleaning (fall cleaning?). Right now, my databases are a mess. I have a lot of databases that aren’t used and databases that are waiting to be used. I still had my old blog database, back from when Brokenphrases was my main blog. So, I decided to to import all those pages and posts here.

Now my blog post archive is pretty much complete. It was such a nostalgia trip going back and reading my old posts. A lot of them were cringe worthy, too. Mostly I just spent a lot of time clicking on links to old websites that I’ve mentioned in my posts. It’s so weird to think that I’ve been blogging (on and off) for over seven years now. I really wish I could be more consistent with my posts so that I have a more clearer picture of what my life was like when I look back on them again, but life doesn’t always work out the way you want it too…

Right now I’m procrastinating (as always, not much has changed in seven years). I’m kind of sick but not sick enough to warrant me staying in bed and doing nothing. Yesterday was my dad’s birthday party and I spent the evening entertaining my little cousin. He is absolutely adorable! He’s a little on the chubby side but I love chubby kids. He reminds me of a marshmallow! We played Checkers and Scrabble the whole night. Well… Our version of Checkers and Scrabble! We decided to bend the rules because my little cousin wasn’t convinced! Regardless, it was a nice night.

I also spent a good chunk of yesterday creating a LinkedIn profile and fixing my resume. I’m a little hesitant about my resume because I don’t have that much work experience but my friend promised to help me with it. There’s a volunteer position open at the organization she also volunteers for and it would be nice to get more things on my resume. Plus, they need a lot of help this year. I’ve witnessed it first hand, my friend seems to be doing everything by herself almost! Sometimes I try to help where I can but more of the bigger things require me to in an actual volunteer position. Hopefully I can land it!

Alright, that was just a quick update. I really do need to get to work on my school things. I have a couple of lecture notes that I need to catch up on and a few readings to do. Hopefully I can bring some more non-Tumblr posts here!

I came to school three hours early today (I start at 10) so I can get a head start on the exercises we’re doing today in tutorial. It’s just so awkward when the TA asks for the answer and no one speaks up. I mean, I probably wouldn’t answer anyway even if I did them before but you know how it goes. Anyway, I had to take a break because I don’t know what I’m doing.
