Well, im kind of n0t that interested in all the enterprising voodoo that happened, buth what I managed to learn from this guy is something far more relevant in the life on any person: that when you do smething you love good and awsome thing happen.
This kind of gets me down, since I have absolutely no idea about what to do with my life, have to keep trying thngs out untill I find my thing.
Over all a very nice interaction, I kind of like the insight that is given on the “programming of yesterday” and how many things work, and the reasons why thoes things work like that.
Its interesting how, when you think about it, the TC201 page is kind of our wiki, or that the “Crap I messed up, lets see what everyone else did” thing we do is an idea thet was presetid in this discussion as well.
Even if the text was directed towards ISC students directly, as an Electronics student it made me feel kind of bad about tha way I have been sorting things out.
And I’m not talking about the “Oh crap, depression, let me curl up into a ball, roll and cry” kind of bad, I’m talking about the “Damm laziness, get out of this energetic and hard-woking body” kind of bad.
Most of the concepts the text talks about apply to almost every career, the GPA, the internships, the extra tools from courses and the importance of learning how to “sell yourself” are all very important, and so far I’ve been neglecting them.
You see, I throughly love whan I’ve seen and experienced so far about my career, there has also been a motivational factor from my family saying “People aknowledge and respect the passion you have for what you do” and stuff. Even so , I am concious now more tan ever that without actually cultivating my strenghths (if I ever find out what they are) and acquire new abilities is what really helps open up oportunities.
The main problem being that I am a procastinator, and procastination is goddamm hard to get rid of.
Pretty much the same as WSQ06, but with the babylonian method, so yeah.
Still, both Gerardo and I had a lot of trouble getting it to work, turns out it was a simple problem of indentation, lol. At the same time a friend of mine from ISC showed me how he did “196” WSQ08, but I still preffer to find my own way of doing it, we’ll see how it goes.
Whelp, the plan is to create an arena shooter using Unity and making the multiplayer aspect of the game ourselves.
Im not really experienced in using unity or mnaging servers and stuff, which is why this will be an interesting project for me. I will do whatever is within my abilities to learn, adapt and overcome this thing, lets see how it goes.
Well, its not like this thing of the “flipped learning” is that new for me, since the last semester we used it as well, the thing with the class metodology this semester is that it was just like a MATRIX sequel, “Reloaded”.
I’m not against the freedom and the responsability that the flipped learning methodology grants students, its just that some people, myself for example, are not very good taking it all in, since we are not used to it.
What throws me off the most is the way we are graded this semester, since personally i’m not very confident in the way I work and in the results I produce, even if other people may say they are fine.
So far POO has been pure rage for me, since I didn’t really get how to actualy write code and organize my ideas correctly for the object oriented style, at least until last week.
You see, this semester i’m taking Digital Systems, and last class we were introduced to some magical stuff, not weed… VERILOG!
My mind was blow away, since I was able to instantly relate the concepts needed for coding actual electronic modules (ADDER, OR, AND, XOR, etc…) with the ones needed for the object oriented way of thinking.
I still need to meke the “196”and the “Movies” WSQ’s, and I will try my best to do them on my own, since the three previous ones where a colabolarive efford of my friend Gerardo Cruz and mine.
So yeah, things are looking “not as dark as they where”.
