Did the week really just go by? I feel like I just wrote my last blog yesterday. I think that means either that I’m getting into the rhythm of school, or I have short term memory loss. This week has been a lot of grinding away at different project. The DUNE project hasn’t been taking up most of my time, but it has been taking up most of my brainspace. I think that’s because its the project that I actually feel a vested interest in, and a connection to the outcome. I think I won’t be able to share any of the details here on the blog because I just had to spend like an hour and a half reading documents that told me in 100 different ways not to share this information with foreigners, else I’ll be put in the stocks. It seemed a little ironic to me as a dual citizen, like, am I these foreigners that I am not to be sharing with? I’ll keep my Canadian personality in the dark on this one I guess, never know what he might do.
This week we prepared our problem statement document. We all worked together through Zoom on one Google Doc. It was honestly refreshing. I’ve been in enough dysfunctional group projects that feel like pulling teeth that one that worked quickly and efficiently writing the document was a breath of fresh air. I think having a group that you work well with is likely one of the Major Keys to success in this class. I feel lucky to have been randomly assigned to such an overwhelmingly competent group. If my partners ever read this down the road, cheers! You make my life better. I’m going on a mini vacation this weekend. This pandemic I guess isn’t all bad, as it has allowed me to let go my earthly tether and get a little bit of traveling in. I’m looking forward to it. I originally began coding because I thought it would be the best job to pay the bills while I sail the Caribbean. It was somewhat a joke at first, but as I went through school the technology and social progress to make it happen has actually happened. Like Elon Musk’s Starlink, and the pandemic normalizing remote work. Maybe it’ll all work out in the end.
If you’ve made it this far, I’m somewhat impressed, it got a little in the weeds for a bit, but we’ve made it out. And you, you know who you are, you’re an everyday hero, and your work makes a difference. Thanks again for reading!
