Thesis defense this morning

Posted by Akano , May 01 2017 · 201 views

I passed. :D

I'm now Dr. Akano. It's weird, but I'm quite happy with it. :) It's nice to no longer have my defense presentation looming over my head.

Sorting

Harry Potter, Pottermore and 2 more...
So, I decided to take the Pottermore Sorting quiz with all questions available on some third party quiz site, because while I love the Thunderbird, the house's traits do not really fit me (I can be adventurous, but let's face it: I'm a schooler). So, I took the full Pottermore quiz, and my results were somewhat predictable.

Indeed, Horned Serpent is my Ilvermorny house by a decent margin, with my second place house being Pukwudgie, then Wampus, and Thunderbird being my least compatible house. (lolololololol)

My Hogwarts house, however, is not Ravenclaw, despite my scholarly ways. I'm a Gryffindor. Ravenclaw was indeed my next most compatible, followed by Hufflepuff and finally, by a large margin, Slytherin.

These results make much more sense to me. Remember, kids, larger sample sizes are better.

New Homestar Runner Halloween toon!

Homestar, Halloween, Doomy tales and 1 more...
I knew none of the costumes, the premise was ridiculous, I clicked the thing that made Homsar appear, and the click-a-costume dialog was wonderful.

ALL IS AS IT SHOULD BE!

Well done, Alex Hirsch. Well done.

The latest Gravity Falls episode was excellent. Totally squashed theories about the author of the journal and, while answering some questions, raised even more. Can't wait for the next episode...

BZPower, April Fools
Why, you ask? Because it gave me Unikitty as my spinny!

Oh, hey, it's that topic I haven't updated in over a year.

I made myself sad.

Doctor Who, Geronimo
So, I may have just finished watching all six series of Doctor Who available on Netflix.

And I'm quite glad I did. Awesome show. David Tennant is best pony Doctor.

I want a sonic screwdriver.

My semester thus far

Posted by Akano , Oct 02 2013 · 209 views

Hi, all!

As you may have noticed, I've been kinda away from BZP recently due to the wonder that is me being in grad school. Last month began my third year into the foray of graduate studentdom, and since then I've been up to the following:
  • Taking Thermodynamics/Statistical Mechanics (four lectures a week spread across Thursday and Friday)
  • T.A.'ing three sections of introductory physics lab
  • Doing research (My group recently submitted a paper which we have gotten back with editing suggestions. We're going to resubmit tomorrow and hopefully get published! I'm going to be a for-reals published scientist!)
  • Buying a Wii U bundled with The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD (Pictures of the awesome GamePad will follow. As of this writing, I have just beaten Gohdan)
  • Finding out exactly what a true Hufflepuff is, anyways.
Pertaining to Wind Waker HD, they made many great improvements to the game. For one, Carlov will make as many figurines in one day as you give him, which is really fantastic. Also, you get the deluxe Picto Box much earlier (when you complete Lenzo's tasks for him), so you can get figurines much earlier. The Picto Box also holds 12 pictures now, and thanks to the Tingle Bottle, you can use pictographs sent to you from random people on Miiverse.

I'm very happy with the improvements made in the game. If only there weren't so much BLOOM (it's not that bad, though).
