Super September
September 22, 2013

In less than a week, I will be done with my first month of the semester!

School is getting better as the weeks go by. I’m almost up to date with the readings I have to do for all of my courses. For C++, I had to code 6 different programs and use pseudocode for 4 of them. Since I jumped to the course without the prerequisite, I was totally lost on what pseudocode was. I went through several websites and thought I had to integrate pesudocode into the program and ended up finding out the instructor wanted us to basically write “human instructions” on what our coding does line by line. Aside from this course, I had a quiz for Chemistry and a test for History on Wednesday. Hopefully I did well on them :).

A couple of days ago, I received an invitation to two events regarding cloud forensics and the anatomy of a cyber attack. I’m definitely going since I don’t have school on those days and it’s at downtown. The first event starts in around 3 weeks. In the mean time, there are plenty of stuff to do~

My boyfriend and I like to celebrate our months together (because we are cheesy like that). Besides getting the car tires changed, we started the day at a Mexican seafood restaurant. I ordered a shrimp and octopus cocktail with a ceviche tostada on the side while my boyfriend ordered some fish tacos. My cocktail had a bit of beer mixed into it (which wasn’t something I ordered) but it was still delicious! A bit later, we headed to The Huntington Library’s Botanical Garden. It was our first time here together so we made the best out of it by admiring the beauty of these plants and atmosphere. We spent a good 3 hours at the garden since it is such a huge place. My boyfriend even brought out his DSLR to take some pictures. At the end, I was really tired from all of the walking but it’s worth it. So if anyone has time around the LA area, definitely check this place out~

After all of that walking, we went for some shaved ice cream. It was my first time trying out shaved ice cream seeing how people rave about it. We ordered an original (vanilla?) flavored ice cream (shaved) with bananas, grass jelly, and coconuts as our toppings. The shaved ice cream was so “fluffy” that we couldn’t recognize where the ice cream was. It was delicious and I wouldn’t mind trying it out again!

à bientôt (see you soon or in my case, until next time~ … It might be the wrong usage but ~thug life~)

    Lol wow funny because unlike you, i’m just starting the new semester 😛

    I like techie talk and I like it more when I see computer science kids talk, makes me go, “wee~ this is how them genius techie experts talk etc etc” even though of course, not everyone in the division is an IT genius but yeah…CS is just a complex subject and when someone i know study it, i’m like…amazed, for some unknown weird reason haha

    interesting invitations you got there! i’d go too if i were you >:) i really think CS is a veryyyy interesting subject but i’m too chicken to take it as my major :)) so i can only admire CS students from afar haha

    mexican food! combine it with seafood and yum yum~ that must have been super awesome for the two of you 😉 it’d be fun to see the snapshots your boyfriend took *o* haha

    i’ve never tried shaved ice cream. i only tried shaved ice with red beans but that’s like eating shredded snow ice cubes or something and it’s pretty much tasteless..just bland cold. shaved ice cream must have been yummy though because it’s probably a little like um..eating creamy sorbet,i suppose? why didn’t you take picture of it?? hahaha

    The Huntington Gardens is one of my favorite places to visit. I adore cactuses, and they have enormous ones and itty bitty cute ones as well!

    By now, I know that you’ve done well at least on your chemistry test, so good job!

    Personally, I am mostly against using pseudocode because there are no consistent standards to writing it, and it confuses people. I hope that that won’t be a problem in your class! Luckily, in textbooks, pseudocode syntax is usually consistent and well-explained, but every book has its own pseudocode.

    And if I remember my French, you used “à bientôt” correctly. à bientôt!

    I hope you did well on your quiz and test too! I haven’t used pseudocode in a long time, but I think it’s kind of common for it to come up in interviews (instead of asking someone to code stuff by hand). That’s cool that you were invited to those 2 events! They sound really interesting 🙂

    Sounds like you guys had a fun day! I love botanical gardens. They’re always so pretty to look at and walk through. All of the foods sound yummy too!
