Gunlord’s College Saga, Episode 24 (July 5, 2020): So much for compsci…

Urrrgh…Remember what I said last week? I’m not completely failing my current CSE course, but my advisor says I am *not* doing well. Damn…I gave it my best shot, and I think I do understand the material, but the nitty-gritty of unit testing is really getting me down. See, in my previous course, there was […]

Gunlord’s College Saga, Episode 23 (June 28, 2020): Fifth Week of the Grind, halfway done (for one class at least)…

The grind continues, but it’s no longer Resident Gunlord this week. Covid cases are going down in my state so everything’s opening back up! We still gotta be careful (I’m wearing a mask wherever I go), but at least summer life’s back to normal, sort of. Anyways… GENERAL GOAL CHECKLIST: Programming Assignment 1 – DONE! […]

Resident Gunlord, Episode 13 (June 14, 2020): Third Week of the Grind…

Shit. As you can tell from my previous couple of entries,I thought I might be in a tight spot this week, but as it turned out, things went better than I thought…for now. Even aside from that (won’t talk about it now, might talk about it later), it was a tough week. GENERAL GOAL CHECKLIST: […]

College retrospective: Not quite the challenge I wanted…

The last of the three entries I said I’d get out this week, my friends. While the previous entry was more specific, this one is quite a bit shorter and more contemplative (and melancholy, I suppose). It’ll a general description of not just my academic progress, but my general feelings on the college experience “again” […]

Tips, Tricks, and General Attitudes That Helped This Semester

A slightly cheerier entry for you today, my friends. Although, as I said last time, I think I’ve reached the limit of my mathematical abilities, that limit’s quite a bit higher than I thought it was. I never thought I could get through even pre-calc, but I’ve managed to survive–not excel, but at least survive–through […]

Guess this is as far as I’ll go…(Gunlord and Math)

I’ll be blunt, my friends. I think I’ve discovered the limits of my mathematical abilities. There are three things I’ll explain in this post. First is why I feel this way, second is how I’ve incorporated what I’ve learned into my worldview, and third is what I’m planning to do from here on out. What […]

Resident Gunlord, Episode 9 (May 17, 2020): THE SECOND SEMESTER HAS ENDED!

Yay~ As I mentioned in a previous entry, this isn’t exactly a triumphant week for me, but a damn good one. Could certainly be worse. GENERAL GOAL CHECKLIST: ALL FINISHED FOR NOW! WORKIN: Monday:  Finished my compsci exam! And….bombed it. This wasn’t my fault, though, at least not entirely. See, the instructors put the code […]
