Update: End of the school year

Hello everyone.

So let me start  by whishing you all a get nice warm summer filed with lots of joy.

So let me start with my grades. I finished math, physics, chem with a 90% ans bio with an 89. Final exam wise it was a 98%, 98%, 90%, 89%.

To add to my list is grade 8 piano and theory level 2.

Programming wise I am dropping python and PHP for now. Honestly I do not like how PHP works because it is too web centered. I have to say however it has its merits. I am keeping Ruby because of Ruby on Rails. I find it interesting how everything  in Ruby is an object. I would also like to learn lua to embed scripting into my programs.

C++ library whise I am looking at the networking portion of SFML, OpenCL and c++ 11 threads because they look interesting as well.

Unfortunately however I have not been doing much programming because my computer is still broken.

Other news I got my car and a job. I got a 1999 turquoise civic for a cat and I got a job through the RAP program in electrical. I am now working for Peco Electrical and it is really fun, interesting and new. I have to say that I have had only 3 days pc work.

January-Early February Update

Here is where I stand on my goals:

  • 99% in all my sciences
  • 94% in my maths
  • Next semester is starting tomorrow that means I’m starting my sciences and math!

  • Get accepted for university
  • Still thinking next year.

  • Get a job
  • After the big trip…

  • Get my Drivers license
  • Big news on this one. I got driving lessons for my birthday! 3 driving lessons down and both class sessions done. Ty God.

  • Start Regular D&D Games

  • I went to St-Albert last monday that is a start.

  • Learn Python, Ruby, PHP, Javascript
  • Learn C/C++, Assembly
  • Practice Socket based programing, GTK+ (GTKMM) and OpenGL
  • Joined a programming group goals are to make video games. Did a few exercises except my computer has not been working for a month. Now it is working again so I should be able to program more.

  • I would also want to learn to use Arduino (Ethernet Shield anyone?)
  • No Arduino yet unfortunately.

  • Have fully migrated to linux
  • Wish there where more games like Battlefield 3 for linux. Only thing holding me back

Other news. Computer finally works again as a result things to expect:

  • More blog posts
  • More ranting
  • More coding

Unfortunately this means I will mean I will be spending to much time on it…

Continuing on, I have read The Night Angel Trilogy awesome series.It is an adult book so they are liberal about sex lots of prostitutes however this is NOT an erotic book. Just felt I needed to mention that. Also this story everything is related it is actually quite cool. Also I am considering going to WYD 2013. Until next time I am signing out.

Taekwon do update

Hello again,

As promised I got good news, Monday I tested for my Red Belt. Guess what I passed with a 89%. Let us just say I did the same mistake six times and as a result I lost six points. Can’t really complain however I did a good job.

Anyways the testing was fun I broke a pine board with a punch and then I broke two with a kick. It was fun however I came home with scratches.

Sparring was a different however I still had fun. So I was sparring someone I have never sparred before and I guess I had intimidated her during my patterns so she always stayed away from me. I was forced to use a lot of long kicks and I would leave myself open (I guess). All that needs to be said is that she got a good turning kick on my chin. Thank God I was wearing a mouth guard.

Goals Update

Hello everyone.

Today I’m posting to tell everyone what I have accomplished up until now to reach my goals and what I’m planning on doing.

My goals:

  • 99% in all my sciences|No science classes yet
  • 94% in my maths|No math classes either
  • Get accepted for university|Next year maybe
  • Get a job|After the winter break
  • Get my Drivers License|Need to practice more
  • Start Regular D&D Games|After Christmas?
  • Become a black belt in Taekwon do|I got news worthy of it’s own post.
  • Start going to other Taekwon do clubs regularly|After Christmas
  • Learn Python, Ruby, PHP, Javascript|I have watched about 4 courses on MIT’s opencourse website about python.
  • Learn C/C++ and Assembly|I have written a basic calculator
  • Practice Socket based programing, GTK+ (GTKMM) and OpenGL|Read the documentation on the official website
  • I would also want to learn to use Arduino (Ethernet Shield anyone?)|No arduino yet 😦
  • Have fully migrated to linux|I got Ubuntu installed.

I’m going to be cleaning up my computer one day during the break going to be setting up Ubuntu and Windows 7 like I have right now. Reasons why: I badly partitioned my HHD so now I am stuck with 28 GB of space in my Windows Partition and I suspect I might be getting one or two video games for Christmas.
