Home for a week and a half. 7 days left till I'm out to get in the shits of some forest somewhere until the beginning of August.
Got home last Friday, met some friends in NYC who managed to escape from campus. At some point we stumbled out of a korean bbq at around 5AM to see that the sun was up. We continued partying into the next night until there were no more men standing.
Sucks to see my old high school friends now that I'm home though. Feels very uncomfortable a lot of the time. Not sure what it is.
Wait until you discover that which is the magical world of Jersey diners. Gastronomical Disneylands open until 4am, dotted along every highway each with its own 120 years of history, somehow.
Almost every Jersey diner is shit. In fact, they all are. Until you find one that isn't, even though in reality, it is. That's when you know, poof!, you have met your soul-diner. What happens next is neither up to you, nor the diner. Only the milkshake you order can decide.
Love Vacuum and Helen, great job flac.
Well I'm not trying to give you a motivational speech here, but any sort of public speaking or performance in front of a crowd is pretty complicated and a difficult thing to master. I'm just saying that you clearly love speaking about these subjects that you love to study, and if one failure-- one which you still have not gotten a clear explanation for-- is going to make you take a break, then it seems like you're betraying your commitments to these things.
I played piano for 12 years and ended up playing at some really big stages more than once. After a shitty, shitty performance I wanted nothing more than to have nothing to do with the piano for a while, but my mom made me watch the recordings which I fucking hated doing. I ended up glad that I had these recordings to be able to proactively assess my performance instead of wallowing in the failure.
Not trying to push you in any way, just pointing out that you're doing something really really cool, which makes me pretty jealous as someone who loves physics but is mediocre at it, and you may be taking a setback a little too harshly here.
- I'll likely give it a rest until the next semester.
If the true reasoning was some flaw in your performance as a lecturer, I think the absolute worst thing you could do is to give it a rest. If there are flaws you need to find a way to do it again in some form, record yourself, and find out exactly what you need to improve on.
Late again, but I I've balanced out last week's bayonet-to-the-foot with this week's getting to hold a bunny for 10 mins during a "stress and wellness" fair that my school held today. The fair seems more like an apology for the emotional, mental and physical molestation of the Corps on a daily basis but I accept that apology in the way of "fuck yeah, bunnies!"
