I got C++ to work with MySQL!

After 5 hours of attending to a mysql missing pid file error, installing brew, installing mysql-connect-c, attempting and giving up on using ‘soci,’ reading error logs for mysql because the little shit wouldn’t even start, finding out it was already started then stopping it so that I could restart it, several computer restarts, tons of command line fuckery, and finally linking libraries properly to Xcode. 

I miss PHP/XAMPP.

Dead Poet’s Society

It’s now in like the top 20 list for pirate bay’s hd-movies. That’s probably the best way to remember the man since it was his best film. 

Oh and Mrs. Doubtfire is there too! Oh yay movies.

Awesome

I know it’s not just me that loves all the music in the Rocky movies, right? All of it.

My professor wasn’t kidding when he said half the class usually fails

Foundations of Higher Mathematics aka intro to proofs class

He told us in the beginning that it’s typical to see half the class fail. 

I normally rank top 5 (out of 18) in the class, and I ended the semester with a C+ grade. C is passing, C- and below is failing. 

I feel tingly inside knowing others failed and I did not.

Chess 960 or Fischer Random

No matter what variation of chess I want to play, there still remains a fundamental truth that I will always run out of time with 5 minute games if they don’t involve 2 second increments. 

I have discovered the secret to unlocking the joy in mathematics

Skipping all exercises. Everything is a lot more interesting when you don’t do grunt work for the information. Proofs are displayed, information is given, all is well and there is little frustration in the air.
