So I’m sitting in my room pondering working on one of my projects and I get an email saying I was just meme-ed by Cheri. Unfortunately, as many of us know from facebook poking, virtual events do not correspond to physical events. And if they did I can’t even fathom what a good meme-ing would be like. Anyways in a fashion strikingly similar to email forwards from the mid/late 90s I will continue by writing eight things about myself and then pass it on. Unfortunately Adam, Jason, and Chris are the only bloggers I know who wasn’t already mentioned on Cheri’s list, thus I guess I am doomed to have terrible luck for the next 5 years.
The following are the rules. It looks like I already broke #4 as I posted their links already.
- I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
- Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
- People who are tagged need to write their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules.
- At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
- Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
Without further ado, my random facts/habits.
- I like to argue given the proper context, which is typically when around my friends. Sometimes I’ll argue a point in which there there is no possible way for me to be correct. I don’t purposefully take the wrong side, but rather just a side in opposition. I suppose I do this to make conversations more interesting, but it’s tough sometimes because being wrong can be depressing.
- This one I’m slightly more embarrassed about but maybe making it public knowledge will help. I cannot keep food at or near my desk because I will eat it until it’s gone. Occasionally I get sent treats, and no matter where I put them every time I pass by I feel compelled to have some. Thus the further from my room the better.
- I have a terrible time writing about myself, which is odd because I know the things I wish to hear when people talk about me. Thus I know what I think of myself, but ask me to say something positive about myself and you’re likely to get nothing.
- I have already picked out a few possible names for my potential future children.
- I’m slightly stealing from Cheri’s underpants story, but this is too good not to mention. During a volleyball game, in my senior year of high school, pantyhose fell out of my shorts onto the court, which was captured on video. If anything is to be learned from this lesson it was to double check my shorts for pantyhose before playing, alternatively I could be to do my own laundry, but that’s just inefficient when visiting my mom.
- I went to Space Camp as a child. Clearly I used to want to be an astronaut, and just recently this dream has been revived when I started thinking about what I actually want to do after college.
- I am never satisfied with myself. While this can be a good thing as I will always try to progress, it can also be bad in the sense that people with eating disorders are never satisfied with themselves. I feel that all the work I’m doing now is so that some day I will be satisfied and happy with myself. However, gradually I am beginning to feel that I’ll never reach a point of satisfaction.
- Finally I suppose I oversimplify mostly everything. Adam and Scott call me overly optimistic Bryce because I base simplicity on whether or not I have a fairly decent idea on the subject matter. With tests, if I feel I know most of the subject matter than the test must be simple, and with projects if I understand how to do each part, then even if it takes me 100 hours to complete, it’s still a piece of cake; it just takes 100 hours to bake.
Well hopefully after next week (finals) I should have a few interesting posts. I have yet to write my python windowing toolkit comparison, and it seems like that’s dust in the wind. However, I recently did some work with OpenGL and GLSL which I would like to share, so stay tuned.
