CS50x Status:
I've completed all the Problem sets, I just need a Final Project to wrap up the course.
I'm at a loss at what I should whip up, time to scour the web for some interesting APIs.

Is the universe trying to tell me something or just taunt me? and random update/thoughts

For the past few months, I've been seeing someone's name constantly in different areas of my life.
For example, like on street signs, ads, mail letters, license plates, TV commercials/movies/shows, even random websites.

I've chalked it up to just random coincidences because the name itself is fairly common, but it's getting to the point that the frequency is ridiculous and feels intentional.
I feel that the universe is trying to tell me something or my sub-conscious is.

I couldn't keep this bottled up, so I have unloaded it here.

-

As for CS50x, I'm on Problem Set 7, but I have been getting distracted a lot.
PHP doesn't seem that interesting for me, but I'll manage.
Motivation Level: Low

As an aside, I've been mainly pondering:
What's going to happen on the next episode of Dragonball Super?
How will Goku and Vegeta deal with Zamasu and Black once they use fusion?

Until next post!

CS50x: More progress!

Sorry for the long radio silence!

I've been focused on completing the course problem sets.
Currently, I'm on Week 7 of 12 - Problem Set 6: Web Server.

I just finished watching the long lecture videos and currently reading through the specifications of the problem set.

I'm enjoying the course.

WHY COULDN'T SCHOOL BE LIKE THIS BACK IN THE DAY?!


Current Motivation Level: Okay.


PS. I randomly had a weird dream last night.

Cats kept popping up randomly in my house, like out of nowhere.
I would hear a random meow, boom, cat.  A meow behind me, boom, cat. 
There were around 20, when a feeling of anxiety overtook me, then I woke up.

But.. but.. I also want to learn to draw with my tablet using OC6!

If I was immortal, I'd do everything.

DEV: Progress!

Welp, I almost forgot I had this blog!

I decided my fate by the use of some Google-fu and Reddit.
My path is to take the "self-taught" route, until an opportunity for something proper arises.

I will follow this curriculum on that website.

Some is review for me, but if I can get something tangible to add to my résumé, I'm for it.

I already made it into the Week 2 portion of CS50x, the drive to keep going is strong!
My procrastinator persona is slowly fading away~

I feel that I am regaining what I lost of myself from 2007 and reshaping it for the better.

My outlet will be Computer Science.

Felt kind of down these past 3 days, so I spent them watching Livestreams.

Bitten by the learning bug, but will it last?

Recently, I have felt like I should be learning something. ANYTHING.
I feel like I should go back to school, but is it possible to do it in your 30s?

High school for me was about 15~16 years ago. (Wow, the mental feeling I get is "2 years ago".)

So, for the past 2 weeks I've been looking at universities, I am clueless about the admissions process and everything that goes with it, I can't even pay for it. -_-;
Aside from that, they're all far from where I live.
There's the community college, but I want a higher education with an actual B.S. degree, not just a certificate.

I feel anxious, but then I get all discombobulated.
Not learning things is causing me to slowly forget things, I hate it.

In order to analyze myself, I've dug up old msn/irc/skype chat-logs I've had with people, I don't even recognize the person behind my username.

I currently feel like I don't have an identity.

LOUSY SMARCH WEATHER

Nothing much going on at the moment, today.

I missed out posting yesterday, because...of how hot and humid it was yesterday, to unbearable to come into the computer room, but I can't really blame the Chicago weather on anyone.
(FYI, it was 85F, but it felt like 90F~105F according to WGN 9.)

I had the unfortunate time of having to venture out in that weather, just to accompany my mother to a diabetes class on how to use the reader machine thingy and nutrition information.
It's sad to see that she's in the borderline stage of getting diabetes, she's been paranoid about it.

We got up early before the clinic opened to get there, assuming that we'd get out earlier... NOPE.

The whole trip plan was to get there, she gets her blood drawn for lab work, attend a small class about operating the Blood monitor thingy, and finally, home.

It was a 4 hour endeavor..... >_<

The best reward was coming home, setting the AC and the fan on HIGH and plopping down on the couch.

After doing so much walking, I just passed out there for several hours.


P.S. : I really hate waiting rooms.

First! Nah, not really.

On a whim, I decided to create a new blog.
I don't really know why, I felt a strong impulse to do so.
I already have one, but it's mostly linked to an old hobby.

What to make this one about?  Two things come to mind.
My personal thoughts/emotions and things related to creating things on the PC.
(Programming, web design, video, audio, etc.).

I feel that it would be more of the former and that's fine.

Just typing these few words make me feel at ease, even though I have barely scratched the surface regarding the content I want to address. Oh well, maybe next post.
