Alum Check-In Day 6

August 21, 2017

I had a great time yesterday finally deciphering the academic Haskell code I’ve been stuck on/gave up on for months!!! (Probably 4-5 months) WHOO. (Thanks RC).

Today I want to take full advantage of the situation and

I’m also going to go to the Women’s Dessert, and if there’s time for anything else I’ll do some networking.

I feel like I’ve given up a bit on

So those two will be the next goals :).

Aside: I’m starting to really resent my hour-long commute each way. I noticed I hate it so much I actually take more time in the morning just bracing myself for it so it takes as long as an hour and a half just to be ok with the whole thing, which has the great added advantage of making me feel like crap by the time I finally hop on the bus to take the train. This morning for example, I just had to become ok with the way Game of Thrones is turning out by reading all the foreshadowing in the books that hinted at the turn of events (even if they arent’ that well executed in the script). Totally inevitable.

Anyway, I consoled myself with reading @Katie Allen (SP2’17) ‘s fun and helpful I Coded in Python for a Year Without Knowing These Ten Things as well as Julia Evans’ debugging zine and it made it somewhat better. Good news is I’m finally moving out tomorrow to a place right next to the J train! Hurray!!
