So this post starts at 1:38 AM on October 26th because I feel shitty about myself. Shitty because I have made promises to myself about doing and learning stuff that I deem creative and enriching. In particular this post started off as my thoughts wandered to the AI courses that I should be studying in my free time instead of searching for new TV series to watch (by the way, I just watched an episode of Bojack and liked it :P). The AI lessons started as a way to build a career in an upcoming and challenging application of software engineering, but then my physics interest kicked in, wanting to reserve some study time for itself.
Essentially this post is a way to keep a log for myself about my thoughts, my wishes and my progress. I had been meaning to start writing such pieces for weeks now, but you know how it is. An idea you want to write about strikes you in the blue and then you find yourself sitting in your office, or driving or doing the most boring thing you can’t get out of. Couple that with the brain I have, such inchoate ideas take seconds to evaporate.
For now I will leave you with a list of the stuff that I have to do in the next three weeks. So first and foremost, I am helping the IIT BHU team for pan IIT Diwali Dhamaka 2017 – a skit competition between eight IITs. I and KT have managed to collect most of the audio clips we need to play with the skit, but there is more work to be done. Next is to prepare slides for the same skit. The idea of the slides is to pick out funny punches in the script and show more funny stuff related to it. Along with this, I have to finish reading a book on Mirza Ghalib’s sher. This is a wonderful book that provides an elaborate meaning for each sher. Once that is done, I have to start reading another book, “A Man called Ove”. This would be a fun read, I see that Tom Hanks is making a movie in Hollywood based on it. I have to read this before the November 15th book club meet of the India Community Center.
Phew! I think I have written about enough stuff for now. Will see you again soon.
