Back to the Grind

Today is the first day back from Thanksgiving break. The break went by too quickly, as always, but I'm ready to finish up the semester and get the final projects closed out.

It's going to be an interesting couple of weeks- all classes are now either entirely virtual or asynchronous completely with no scheduled meeting times. I think that will still be okay, it'll really depend on the professor. We will see.

The agenda has two programming final projects- I'm most excited for the AI one at this time, a final paper on human rights in regards to Facebook and censorship in the world, another final paper on sustainable adjustments in everyday life and why they are not more common, and a research project on an element of Vector Calculus that I still need to choose. It's going to be busy, but I hope it'll be fun. I also have Animal Crossing to play in my downtime. I finally got Sherb over break and I am absolutely ecstatic about that.

I'm also getting back to work at the EMC this week. I've been excited to come back honestly, I really love the idea collaboration and scheming that we are doing. It's been really fun and interesting to hear everyone else's ideas and build off of them.

I'm optimistic about the rest of the semester. Here's to 2020 coming to an end, the start of a new year, and the opportunities the end of this semester could bring.
