Week 2: Back to Painting!

It’s been a long week! I finally got everything situated in my dorm (with no room left!!!) and got all of my work done! This week, I had way too many assignments and events to help prepare for, but I’m glad to be nearing the end of the week.

I just finished my lab for my computer science class, the infamous “bomb lab.” To put it simply, this assignment involved a program that, on launch, asks for a defuse code. If the code inputted is wrong, then the bomb explodes and your grade drops. You’re supposed to inspect the machine code to reverse engineer a defuse key that is randomly generated for everyone.

Finally done!! I was so relieved after seeing this message šŸ™‚

For ABSA (Asian Business Student Association, an on-campus org I’m involved with), I had a lot of events to help prepare for/attend. We have a large crawfish boil tomorrow that we’ve been preparing all week for, as well as a painting social tonight that I’m going to lead! While some of my friends were cutting potatoes, I did a test run on one of the (admittedly small) canvases with acrylic paint.

It’s been a while since I’ve used acrylic! I really did not like trying to blend it (as I normally paint in Oil), but it was fun knocking something out relatively quickly. This scene is somewhat like my ideal scenery – an early, moody evening in the fall where the temperature isn’t too hot nor too cold. It’s kind of strange that I’m painting something like this in the spring, but I guess it might just be because I already miss the fall.

Washing my palette is almost as relaxing as painting the actual picture :’)

My next step is to practice more with my guitar in order to perform at the next ABSA meeting, where for some reason, I was nominated to compete in their “Next Top Model” competition…. check again next week to see how it went!

  1. That CS assignment sounds difficult. Unfortunately as an engineering major Iā€™m only required to take 1 programming class šŸ™

    1. It wasn’t too hard but it was somewhat stressful! I definitely blew up the bomb a couple times on accident šŸ™‚ I wish you well in your programming class!
