Blog Updates, Python, Science

Blog Update!

Happy November!

Halloween has come and gone, and I haven’t made a post here in a month. Yikes! Research and report writing, as well as job hunting, have been keeping me quite busy, but that’s no excuse for my lack of writing here.

Updates in this post:

  • Science Fridays
  • Codestellation
  • Progress in Python and Japanese studies

To rectify this, I’m going to start a new series on this blog: Science Fridays! In this post series, I’ll be writing about new scientific research that’s both fascinating and immediately relevant to human health. My recent subscription to the weekly Science magazine by AAAS has introduced me to a wide variety of articles that I want to share here. This series will begin next Friday, so stay tuned for that!

In other news, I’m going to be participating in a really cool 24-hour-long hack-a-thon next weekend on my campus. It’s called Codestellation, and you can read more about it here! I heard about this event last fall (here are last year’s projects!) but since I had just started my Master’s program, I was too busy to get involved. This time, I have a reason to participate: to make something using my growing knowledge of Python. Not to mention, it’ll be a wonderful opportunity to work with a team, meet new people, and learn new things! I’m really looking forward to it, and I’ll definitely be blogging about it next week!

My Python progress through Python Crash Course has come to a standstill, but I have been easing myself back into it by reviewing older material. I’ll begin chapter 7 – about user input – this weekend and see how far I can get before Codestellation. Speaking of studies, my progress in Japanese has also slowed down some (albeit using HiNative and LINE on a near daily basis has helped me put my grammar knowledge into practice).

Juggling hobbies with daily responsibilities is tough, isn’t it? Do you have a tough time finding time for your hobbies? Tell me about it in the comments!

Thanks for reading, stay tuned for more cool things! :)
