Greetings! This post comes from the middle of CodeMash. It is my first year speaking and second year attending. Unfortunately, my talk isn't until the last slot on the last day, so I feel distracted from the rest of the conference in anticipation (/anxiety) for my talk. It's a bit of a shame for a… Continue reading CodeMash-ing

It's been a while. My life is incredibly different now than my last post. I've been working at IBM Watson for the last four years. I'll go into that in a different post sometime. I seem to pick this blog back up whenever a big new thing is happening in my life. Last time, it… Continue reading 久しぶりだね！
Post Train Review
As previous posts mentioned, I just took a train across the US, or at least from Los Angeles to Chicago. What did I expect: Not getting to read or watch shows as much as wanted because people would talk to me. The dining car food would be mediocre (but not bad), and the scenery would… Continue reading Post Train Review
Adventures in Rooting my tablet
Don't expect any exciting stories, this is actually just me jotting down things as I do this. Why am I rooting it? <-- Why Not? Actually after I let my tablet from 2012 update to Lollipop, it's really struggled. The processing speed halved and it freezes a lot now. The poor thing can't handle it.… Continue reading Adventures in Rooting my tablet
Word of advice.
As a follow-up to the previous post. If anyone ever feels uncomfortable in a contract job, you're not required to continue. It's okay to leave. Several people gave me this advice between Thursday and Tuesday. It's what empowered me to say something initially. I felt guilt for potentially not finishing something I had committed to.… Continue reading Word of advice.
Super Busy but also Ethics
Hello! It's been a bit. As my previous posts say, I'm taking a train across the US and preparing for that has been time consuming. However, not all encompassing. So what has been? Well I've been working on a contract job! Whoo money. Okay, but why is the name of the post ethics? Good question!… Continue reading Super Busy but also Ethics
Train across the States part 2
So this is still the planning stage. However, I've more or less finalized my date leaving and will be buying my ticket in the next 14 hours. I signed up for Amtrak Rewards since it's free and even used a friend's referral so they get some extra points! Since I know which I'm taking, I… Continue reading Train across the States part 2
Train across the states part 1
So for reasons, I'm heading to Michigan in about a month. Well I decided to take a train, because why not! This is part one of the sites I've looked at for finding things and more about this this can be expected! First thing I found was this. Now the most useful thing I got… Continue reading Train across the states part 1
Afternoon! This is partially for reference for myself and by partially I mean mostly. But this morning, I spent some time comparing some background noise things! (Source: Reddit) For working, I love the sounds of coffeeshops, and Coffitivity has a variety of coffeeshop sounds and can give a few different atmospheres. Works well as background or combined with… Continue reading Background Sounds
Well my internet is currently down and I’m doing this offline at the moment, but today I'm going to start talking about the android project I wanted to work on. Concept: App that auto sets alarms based off of when user needs to get up. Use Case: User J is going to bed and needs… Continue reading Alarm Intro!
