summertime

Weee school is over and I’m now in my first week of internship! Would’ve like to write this earlier when I had more feels but last week was just studying for and taking exams, then a v tiring long weekend then straight away started work yesterday.

Kinda lazy to write about other things that happened before the term ended. Actually there’s nothing much to say anyway, the last 2 weeks have been v free. It’s funny how other ppl are like “oh I can’t go out cos I got exams coming up in 2 weeks” but for us it’s like “ya sure I’m v free cos I have exams next week”. Oh ya ok part of why I was so free is cos week 13 was the final presentation and submission for ESC game, the presentations were spread out across the week but my group’s was on monday so after that we were pretty much done with it. Also this was quite a sucky project experience cos one of my groupmates was mia 90% of the time, and the rest weren’t very enthusiastic about it also so we just kinda did the minimum to meet the requirements. The app works decently but I don’t really feel proud of it cos we put so little effort :/ also feels kinda cheaty cos we just made our game multiplayer on 1 phone and didn’t have to do any networking (which is what most groups lost a lot of sleep over). Blehh

Moved out of hostel on sat!

(this post was started last wed but never finished until now)

[29 March] I’ve been ridiculously free the past few days, from sunday when I was home alone for most of the day and was so bored I went to try playing piano, to today where I spent the whole day chilling with istd friends: wanted to go out and watch a movie but it was raining so we ended up watching shows in the recre room, then went out for dinner + walked around daiso + sat at starbucks until we were all freezing, then played darts + sherlock holmes game (where we concluded that we’re not cut out to be detectives).

Part of it is because school is somehow very un-challenging and ESC has no more homework, but the main reason why I’m suddenly so free is because the app I’ve been working on is finally done!!! It’s called exploreSUTD and is available on both app store and play store now :D Vivek and I have been working on it since Sept last year so to finally set the version number to 1.0.0 for first release feels good. This is my first major project and I’ve definitely learnt a lot, so just wanted to record some thoughts about it!

Writing this post cos I don’t feel like doing actual work hahaha.

I’m dyeing my hair tmr!!!! This actually came up cos I went shopping with some of the guys for benny’s bday present and I was complaining that they didn’t celebrate my bday (or rather sean brought up the fact that I was kind of salty about it lol). Then stanley came up with the idea of treating me to dye hair as a belated present and so… we went to check out the salons and book appointment! Exciting hehe hope it turns out nice x)

Blackforest cake for stanley + benji + benny’s birthdays! Glad it turned out quite well cos I kinda mixed two recipes plus substituted chocolate chips cos I last minute realised I didn’t have cocoa powder at home.

V amused by school this week – we learnt about communication between processes which was fun cos you can run different programs and make them talk to each other:

(the “husband” is the server which connects to multiple clients i.e. the “wives”. the husband can talk to multiple wives but each wife can only see her convo with the husband. This husband wife thing was in the code given to us LOL)
