129. A day of coding…

…goes pretty much like this…

I’m going to be really productive today. I am refreshed and ready to tackle these questions. Bring it on!

Just look at that positive attitude.

Let me just copy and paste the code that worked perfectly at home. Done. I think I’ll just run it to check everything is working…

It’s not working. Why isn’t it working?

My computer hates me

Oh I forgot to install the packages at the start. Silly me. It should work now.

It’s still not working. I don’t understand why this is happening.

EHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Crap now I’m going to have to run everything line by line to identify the problem.

Oh FFS I left out a bracket. Now everything is working.

FINALLY I can start. Oh crap is that the time?! I’m going to be late for my lecture.

When will this be over?!

*sigh* another day of unproductive coding.

And that guys, is basically my life right now!

Over and Out!

P.S New background- good, bad or ugly?

122. Makeover. Photoshoot. Why am I doing this?

Sometime during my internship, Shakira and I bumped into a random person outside the station selling a makeover day and I don’t know if it was the weather or I had a long day at work but we ended up buying it. We booked it for two months time and didn’t really think about it until a few days ago when we had to start preparing.

This morning when I woke up, my first thought was WHY AM I DOING THIS? I don’t know the first thing about hair and beauty. My beauty essentials are moisturising cream and eye pencil. I still haven’t figured out how to utilise liquid eyeliner. I rarely paint my nails because they’re usually half bitten. Basically I’m a disgrace to the beauty community.

However I thought: fuck it. It’ll be an experience, good or bad, at least it’ll be interesting.

As part of the day, they gave us a manicure (lol), an aromatherapy hand massage, styled our hair and gave us a full blown makeover. After that there was the photoshoot… which was the part that I was worried about. My mental commentary was something along the lines of:

How do I stand? What do I do with my hands? How do I smile? Should I pout? Can I even pout? *commence awkward fish faces in the mirror* argh Argh ARGH.

However I need not have worried. The photographer clearly knew what he was doing. He told us exactly where to sit, where to look, where to put our hands. All of this he did very quickly so I just felt like I was following instructions. Head here. Face up. Chin down. I can do this.

It turned out to be a really fun day. Definitely worth the experience.

So yeah. This is my face.

Thanks Photoshop.

I hope this doesn’t turn into my Rishta (pre-wedding) photo. Because they will be hella disappointed when they see me in reality.

Over and Out!

80. Exam Complaints

I don’t want to be one of those people who’s always banging on about their exams but this blog is for my thoughts and they’re all I can think about right now. I apologise.

2 papers are out of the way and they went okay. Could have been better. Could have been worse. I’ve resolved not to think about them anymore and just to focus on the next hurdle… which is Group Theory on Monday.

I took Group Theory because my second year project was related to it and I thought I’d have a headstart in the module. I guess I did… for all of 2 weeks and then I was as lost as everyone else. However I don’t regret taking it. Some of the proofs in it are exceedingly clever and I found the course overall really interesting.

But I really don’t want to do an exam on it. There are 65 proofs in the course and I probably couldn’t memorize them all even if I had a lifetime. I am praying the stuff I know comes up and not some obscure lemma that I glanced over.

The questions will supposedly be structured as following: 1 or 2 parts which are directly from lectures (eg. proofs and definitions) and another 1 or 2 parts which is some unseen/ seen similar application.
The lecturer might think he’s being uber generous giving us stuff directly from lectures but the truth is if you remember it, it’s all well and good but if you don’t then you are royally screwed. You can’t blag it and you can’t ‘work it out’. It will usually mean that you can’t do the rest of the question either.
Say you can do the first part of the question, that is no guarantee that you can do the second part and ‘apply’ it. Most of the time, there is some sneaky trick. If you see it, EPIC WIN. If you don’t, may God have mercy on your soul because you’re going to need a miracle to answer the question without said trick.

In many of the questions, he’ll ask us to work something out and that we can use ‘any results from lectures as long as they are stated clearly’ to help. This sounds good right? WRONG. These kinds of questions are awful. In the mock paper he asked a question like that and he ended up using four facts from three different chapters, put them all together and claimed BAM! answer. HOW! How do I know which facts to bloody extract?!

*sigh*. I’ll do what I can.

Over and Out!
