[Day +20] Code vs Talk Paradox

“Fill your life with lots of experiences, not lots of things. Focus on having incredible stories to tell, not incredible clutter in your closets.” Unknown

#MORNINFG (10:00)
Another late morning for me, which seems to become a new normal. I  guess my batteries recharging capacity is declining slowly but surely. And it comes together with the bitter sweet realisation that today is my last Piscine Sunday and tomorrow the last 5 days will start its count…
So as a good runner I do plan on giving it all go get to the finish line. As for this morning, I set myself a goal to concentrate and dive in the videos and the exos. I will try to find back my early days bulldozer attitude and move forward at the pace that would outdo the recent 1,5 exos per day…

#EVENING (02:52)
I have suddenly realised that today was the last Sunday of the Piscine. And as impatient as I am to find back my usual weekends routines and get back to the before piscine definition on the “early Sunday morning”, I know that I will miss it all.
As I realised that this amazing adventure is almost over I have also realised that I don’t have much time to check all the extra curricular activities on my list and I need to speed it up if I still plan get somewhere on this front.
The first one is the film! I have briefly spoken about it yesterday and I plan on starting to shoot the short interviews and some general sequences to edit together into something like “Piscine insider” video afterwards.
I’m still on the DAY08, which is about .H and Structures. And the good news is that I have finally understood this (3 days struggle seems to be a magic number for any new material…) and with the help of my next screen neighbours and one of the most supportive peer profs @Gabriel I did manage to understand the brain-twisting exercise #5. And with fingers crossed I hope to validate this one tomorrow.
DAY10 & DAY11 & DAY12
Those 3 were a part of an accelerated weekend course imposed by the RUSH needs and I did watch all the videos on the 3 days material. I have a hell of a cocktail of all the things I didn’t understand about each of the 3 but there is also a portion of what I did understand. So I hopefully will be able to get to the “understanding” state of all 3 by Wednesday evening which would be just on time to leave one last day for the preparation for the final exam.
No news so far, come check back tomorrow.

1.MOVIE. Today I decided to do my weekend Kate and thus I dedicated a certain portion of my day to do some interviews with the people I had a pleasure to work with day to day, during the group projects or that I met during the correction, at the cafeteria and in the hallways. I didn’t manage to film everyone I wanted to but I did manage to recruit my future speakers for tomorrow and I plan on finishing all the filming by tomorrow evening so that I can get my head 100% back into coding.
2.CODE VS TALK PARADOX. Together with “it’s the last Sunday” realisation came a second one: I will terribly miss the friends I have met during this amazing first 3 weeks and once the idea got into my head the conversations about life slowly took over the conversations about code. And thus is the 3:18 log time. And also the special mention to @Maxime and @Jack for the rich life-love-war-peace conversation over the lunch and the evening session on the same topic (which was rather a one-woman-show “Kate and her eccentricities”). Let’s consider this one as an ultimate pit stop before the final line run and so tomorrow is the work work work!
