Right now, all I know is Na Zdorovje. It's a start. On the bright side, I've always wanted to write a depressing 800 page novel. I'll find a silver lining to this election yet.
Donald Trump is President-elect of the United States. There, that explains the title.
Yes, you. I hope you're sittin' pretty high on the metaphorical (or physical, what do I care) hog. I'll keep this short, but I've noticed that in my 10+ years of Slashdot-journalling, there's one thing I can count on: I never expect this entry to last quite so long, nor do I expect myself to live quite so long. So, let's see who outlives who.
HINT: PROBABLY MY JOURNAL.
Anyway, if you can read this, 2020 karniv0re, you're in one of 3 states:
I don't have anything terribly specific to write about, but lots of little things.
Looking back nearly two years ago provides a pretty good picture of where I'm at. This tidbit from November of 2014 provides some insight:
After re-reading my last journal entry, man. This year has sucked. Shit was bleak.
I'm taking two classes this semester. Stepping it up from the single-class semesters. I think it'll be ok though. I'm in Intro to Data Science and Bayesian Statistics. Man, a year ago, I was so excited to be in a DS class. And now, here I am, and it feels like bush league. It's because I've been studying this stuff so intensely for the last year, doing things the right way, no shortcuts, doing my own research, listening to DS podcasts, etc. I'm not terribly surprised when our professor is tal
Nearly a year ago today (give or take a few hours), I formally began this path toward Data Science. We'll call that t_0.
Just a quickie before I start my next summer class. I just finished Big Data a few weeks ago. It was really a piece of cake, but also kind of awesome.
By now, I am desperate.
This fucking app has advanced exactly 0 measurable units in the last 3 weeks. I have tried a lot of things, but I always get stopped a few steps in by more shit breaking. This is insanity.
I'm going to continue documenting my struggle, in the hopes that I figure something out and am able to articulate why this has taken so long.
I've been trying to write a mobile app for about 5 years. What a fucking joke. Nobody even uses apps anymore.
I mean, sure, we use a few. But what was the last app you downloaded that you regularly use? Probably Facebook or Twitter. Probably not Billy Joe's Bait Shack app. You just go to his fucking website.
I was on the bus on my way to school and I thought of this great idea for a bar. So I'm going to write it down here so someday when I'm rich enough, I can make it happen.
I'd call it The Library, or something similar, and it would be almost a literal library.
The inside would be similar to the New York Public Library, with green lamps on desks. There would be actual books there, but like the old looking ones.
