When September Ends… (#6)

How has it already been another month?!

I remember speaking with a friend in college a few years ago and expressing incredulity about how busy he claimed to be. I now formally retract those statements; I have never felt so engaged.

Turns out, my first week was a bit misleading. The question isn’t what I should be doing, it’s what I shouldn’t be doing. Coding or carillonning? P-sets or ping pong?

The work is strenuous, but that was to be expected. What I didn’t necessarily anticipate - how much I’m enjoying my courses. I have found learning Chinese in particular to be extremely rewarding.

I’m starting to feel like I’m settling in - within the last few weeks I gave a tourist directions and pulled my first late-late-nighter to finish a CS p-set. I’m getting involved in the entrepreneurial community - YES - as well as the Effective Altruism fellowship - YEA.

I also joined the club running team - YCR (every club here is a 3 letter acronym that starts with Y). I’m excited to run in our first meet, the Brown Invitational, against many northeastern universities tomorrow!


🚀 Updates

  • Friday V2 has officially launched! Whether you're confused by a lecture concept, or stuck on a tricky problem set, Friday will explain the answer like a teacher’s assistant or tutor. You can check it out at https://friday.education.
  • I’m continuing to edit my next FreeCodeCamp course, which should hopefully be out soon...
  • I may be potentially helping to start a new orientation program here focusing on entrepreneurship - more to come on this in future updates.
