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 […]

Not exactly triumph, but survival. The second semester of the first year of my second runthrough of college is DONE!

Post theme: https://listenonrepeat.com/?v=R6_h2LyM-4U#Bloodstained%3A_Curse_of_the_Moon_OST_-_Nightmare_Ending_(Zangetsu_is_gone)   Well, this week marks the end of the second semester for me. I took my final compsci exam on Monday, and I just finished my final math exam this thursday night. Now, I should note that I don’t really have much of a break…my only summer classes start on the 26th. […]

Having Lived a Good Life

First, to get any unintended interpretations out of the way: I, personally, am doing 100% fine. As of the time of this writing, neither I nor anyone in my immediate family has come down with any symptoms of the virus. Despite that…everything on the news makes me think it’d be better to make an entry […]

Review of my first semester at my second runthrough of college

Man, I thought I posted this a while ago, but looking at my entries, it seems to never have published. Very weird. Well, might as well post it here, I originally wrote it last month, on January 20.   Urgh…it’s just a little over one week until my second semester begins (classes start January 27, […]

What kinda jerb do I actually want? (Introspection)

Grr…well, as y’all know, I’m not back at college *solely* for the challenge. I’ve gotta start thinking about how to ply this CS degree into a job… But here’s the thing. What kinda job do I really want? And what kind do I really need? A few years back I was pretty obsessed with money. […]

Doing It Right This Time (Winning Too Hard, Part 2 of ?)

Remember a little while ago, in this entry about One-Punch Man, I mentioned I was going back to college? Today I’d like to talk a little more about why I’m doing so specifically. To an extent it’s pragmatism. As I mentioned in my previous entry, I’m not having all that much luck in the job […]

Anti-Thomist Tidbits: A Defense of the Sexual Revolutionary

A couple weeks ago, the philosopher Edward Feser–despite all I’ve written about him, I can’t call him my rival or nemesis, because he doesn’t know I exist–wrote a blog entry titled, “Psychoanalyzing the Sexual Revolutionary.” In that essay, he argues that “sexual revolutionaries”–those who see nothing wrong with homosexual sex, or trans people, or just […]

In it for the long haul (Not over yet)

As I mentioned in a post last week, I’ve been feeling pretty depressed and pessimistic about Bloodstained, as well as crowdfunding in general. To sum up what I said, the constant, never-ending drip-drip-drip of bad news pertaining to the project destroyed my hype for it. It wouldn’t have been so bad if I was just […]
