A blog about stuff I find interesting. Mostly fantasy pictures, cats, and math.
This semester has been going alright. Its been really busy, with a very time intensive lab. Unfortunately, my laptops screen decided to give out just outside of the warranty. I’ve got it hooked up to a monitor, but its no longer portable. Its had a good run, 3 years of very heavy use and carried almost every day during the semesters. At least I can still use Matlab and ANSYS without having to fight getting a new license on another hard drive. I kinda jinxed myself a bit, as I was wondering when I would be able to upgrade my laptop just this morning. Since its out of warranty, I’ll probably open it up and check out the screen connection. It could be loose or fried or broken, and I might be able to repair it myself. I’m still on hiatus, just giving an update to my situation.
So, I think I may have to extend this hiatus through this semester. I didn’t plan it very well, and I will have next to no free time when my labs begin in two weeks. I’ll check my tag (#celharn), messages, and activity page about once a week, probably on weekends. If anyone has any need of me, that’ll be the best way to get in contact with me.
ellitrioh tagged me in a post to list 15 things that make me happy, in no particular order:
1. Sleep, as its been harder to come by since summer ended.
2. Robots. I want to learn how to design them, and do really cool things with them.
3. Well designed armor/weapons. If it has those, chances are I will enjoy watching/looking at it.
4. Using Creo or Solid Works to build models of things. Its relaxing, and I don’t find the work tedious.
5. Star Wars
6. Dragon Age. I’ve been trying to get through the games recently. I really enjoyed the design of the world and the countries.
7. My adorable floofball of a cat. She rarely leaves me alone while I’m at home, which lead to her one-time nickname of “Calculus Cat”. I think I have a picture of how she earned that if anyone is interested.
9. Reading. I’ve recently gotten into Discworld at the suggestion of lonefiresthename. It took me way too long to decide to start. From what I’ve read so far (a bit of Guards! Guards!), Terry Pratchet is already one of my favorite authors.
10. Learning about all the different ways that materials can fail. I’m getting a minor in Material Science, I really enjoy this stuff. Same with composites.
11. Baseball. I enjoy watching it, but this year has been especially rough since I root for the Rangers.
12. Dungeons and Dragons. I haven’t played it in years, but I enjoy reading about other people’s adventures.
13. Technology. I’m impressed in how fast things are advancing, and I want to see how far things will go in my lifetime.
14. Architecture. I enjoy trying to see how buildings and bridges are designed for their purposes.
15. Animals. Especially puppies, kittens, a small birds.
I think I’m going to have to take a break from tumblr while I get settled into this semester. I’ll be back when I have more free time.
