I am enamoured with the idea of the zettelkasten, and when I started again trying to pursue university I made a very impulsive decision to set one up. It helped some things, for sure: I would not have been able to complete my final speech on time in term 1 if I didn't have my zettelkasten to rely on. However, I've recently discovered that maintaining a zettelkasten might be antithetical to getting my BS in Computer Science. I hope to explore why here.
Documentation seems to be quickly defining itself as one of my specialties at work. Not that I mind; I've always felt that documentation was nearly as important as the source code itself. But I spent a large time again this week going through code and writing down what it did, without making any substantial changes to how it ran. And I think it is actually a really fun pastime.
So, it seems I've once again done the thing where I disappear from things like this for a bit. That's okay though; I have (at least) been productive in that time! This is mostly an update post on one of my projects, which I have just made a decent about of progress in that I wanted to share..
Today marks the first day of my fifth week back at school and I wanted to take a moment of pause and consider how things are going. With 8-week terms, this means I have completed exactly 50% of this term, and it might be a good idea to check in with some self reflection or something similar, to make sure I am on track and doing things the way I'd like.
So, I never went to college, for a couple reasons. But recently, my employer revised their program to help people pursue bachelor's degrees, and I currently qualify… So, I applied, and I start classes on 2022-01-17.
Yeah, the title may be a reference to Dr. Mike… But I keep saying it in my head, so I think it fits.
