I really like how pretty this campus is. I need to get out more. Seriously. Anyways, I start at fox next week.

survey

I don’t know who needs to hear this but whatever. Sending me an email or a text to review my experience is actively taking away from my experience. Leave me alone. Jesus.

american

How can you possible be proud of being American? Why does American nationalism exists. This country is run by billionaires and special interests groups. Infrastructure is in shambles. The education system is broken. Don’t even get me started on the healthcare system in this country. People aren’t even willing to get a fucking vaccine to save the economy from falling into shambles. Seriously. How can you be proud of being an American today?

work

Decided to work at fox during this school year. On the day after my interview (today), RS dropped their version of live valve. Not gonna talk about it here, but it’s pretty fucking cool . Overall, it just seems like a super polished version of what the fox crew is trying to do with live valve. This timing is just crazy. The pay is supposedly 25/hr. I think I’m going to ask the HR person if they could do 30 for a homie.

rushing

I’m so excited for my interview at fox tomorrow that I can’t even sleep right now. In other news, I decided to rush AKP. Fratboy Chadkit coming soon?

choices

Oct 2, 2021
Currently, I’m trying to decide between a networking class and an internship at fox (the suspension). I don’t even know if I gotten the role at fox but just the idea of working in the bike industry again sounds really fun. I’m torn between my goals as a SWE and my goals for life and just having fun as a whole. On the other hand, networking is a really fun class and the fox internship is for mechatronics and not CS.

buses

Sep 22, 2021
Don’t live right outside of a bus stop. Buses are loud. The screeching brakes, the really loud acceleration and the sound of the entire thing airing out. Buses start early in the morning and run late into the night. Don’t live right outside of a bus stop. For some reason a bus will never show up when I actually want one, only when I’m trying to go to sleep or at the weeee hours in the morning.

in person

Sep 21, 2021
Kinda weird to be going back to in person classes. One class will be 30 people and once a week which seems fine but computer networking is a 150 person class 3 times a week… Yikes.

lifers

Sep 10, 2021
I don’t understand anti-maskers. I don’t understand pro-lifers. But what I REALLY don’t understand is how some people manage to be both pro-lifers and anti-maskers. Just a thought.

screen real estate

Aug 5, 2021
It’s crazy to me that in the Bay Area, everyone will pack housing so close together that the aerial view looks more like a box of sardines than a group of cities. Still I see engineers using macs with their docks maximized taking up 20% of the bottom of the screen. What’s the dock even good for? What does it add? How does it improve your workflow? Maybe it’s the vim user in me but taking your hands off of the keyboard is sinful and should be avoided as much as possible.
