Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Ah.. finally got a datastructure/algorithm that work!
dammit, mesh data structure is really tough. Hopefully this data structure is re-usable
going to code them now.

Learning method

Feb. 15th, 2007 | 12:59 am
mood: contemplativecontemplative

I don't know whether I'm just a pure procastinator or I just easily forgot what I want to say in my blog on the way home.

OK first... Happy Valentine Day (although I doesn't seem to care the event people doing in this day)

So long time ago (lol), I have always been thinking that there are 2 ways of learning:
First one is depth-first learning. It's fairly typical people learn things in this way in many courses/subjects in schools/universities.
This method is good for if the courses' later topics require the mastery of the previous topics, although sometimes when learning the earlier topics, people would have some difficulties dealing with the usage. So many times I wondered "what are these things for? How is this gonna be useful?" whenever something complicated is introduced (i.e. has some relation to other topics).
If someone explain things outside the scope of that specific topic, mostly I'll just go "What? what are you talking about?". And there will be chain reaction of questions not knowing something from one topic leading to other topics.

So what's my preference?
It's the second one : breadth-first learning. I think it'll be great to have 3-4 weeks introduction to the whole topics that will be discussed in a course/subject. In contrast to the depth-first one, this method won't introduce any confusion (or at most a minimal confusion) whenever something complicated popped-up. I can say "Oh I see... so it will be used to deal with other problem in other topics". Since I already have a little background on that other topics. It won't be hard to accept how things is going or at least I know the reason better why that complicated objects/methods exist in that specific topic.

I wish I could learn this way for every course I take :(

Other Infos :
Work search : still no reply from threewave software :( please let me in please let me in please let me in

Academic : skipped 4 math classes in a row, I'm so awesome. Learned everything in the 1hr lecture for 15 minutes. I enjoyed Special topics in computer graphics so much (but the data structure is harrrrd :( ).
JAPN101 : as usual always slacking off till 1hr before class... even if it's 10% of course mark lol

Things in January

Jan. 28th, 2007 | 10:57 pm

Well... 3 weeks have passed since the first day of the semester.
So far, I can handle the Japanese easily.. and Linear optimization too.. (It takes some time to read the stuff by myself. The lecture really doesn't help my understanding of the subjects at all. I probably skip the class huh? lol).
Lastly, the Special topics in Computer Graphics is really interesting (hi again splines and meshes). I hope I can think something for the assignment's answer of theoretical-question by tomorrow.

----

uh so yeah..
This is what I've done since last update:
First,

^ I made that by myself btw hahahaha

Finished reading Rakkyo up till chapter 4-2 (伽藍の洞)
Rakkyo is interesting... and probably one of the reason is they jumbled the timeline, leaving the readers the curiosity to know the reason behind each chapter. I just can hope the OVA won't be too bad.
Currently, Baka-Tsuki wiki is the place I read this stuff, since Mirror Moon only update their page once they translate 1 chapter completely.

Second,
<- thumbnail, click to enlarge
Cute :}
What the heck people keep saying pedo anime with just fanservice.
They are just too chubby and too cute to make people pedo. I am getting more interested on the story after watching episode 4 too. How do I say this... kinda.. heart-warming?

Third,
Nodame Cantabile
Ahh.. finally found Honey & Clover-like (I hope) kind of anime for this season. I guess those 2 anime satisfies my needs for this semester (=´∇`=)

----

Ah and the work permit: I've just received it on the 23rd (Tuesday). Yay for me :D
I've seen 3 companies' job offer so far: Electronic Arts Canada, Radical Entertainment, and Three Wave Software.
EA wants students that already have completed at least 2 work terms. So there goes my hope applying to EA, but I definitely will try it after the second work term if I got a chance.
I'm really interested in joining Three wave.. but the resume deadline for the application is due Jan 30, and by this time, my resume is still stuck in the internet (error converting document... just what the hell PlacePro?)

Projects

Nov. 27th, 2006 | 09:22 pm

OK
I'm seriously in trouble

1. My web info sys project : It seems that we haven't done much yet... still, the poster is going to come this Thursday and the project itself will due on December 4th

2. Animation : Well this is the one that I have managed to keep well... I only need to animate the rock throwing beaver model animation... and need to spend quite a time for rendering using Yafray.
Project Due : Dec 12th

3. Advance Graphics: I'm really screwed on this one. I've read the paper a few times... looking for references over here and there in these past few days, but no luck. the BRDF expression still doesn't make sense at all. I'm hoping I can get satisfactory answer from my Prof / Google groups
Project Due : Dec 15th

>.<
I wish I have more people to help me

Considering to be a Grad Student?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Not me... at least I don't have any plan to be one right now.
I still have a lot of things to study outside academic world.
And I don't wanna be an idiot who only know to study. Props to you who have the ability to continue to grad study.
I know that ,at least from my current ability, I may not able to reach it. Am I lazy? maybe.. Am I getting dumb in past 1-2 yrs? maybe...

Premonition

Sep. 29th, 2006 | 03:18 am
mood: contemplativecontemplative

Our lives are controlled by too many variables
If you succeed now, is it an auspicious sign about your future?
I see some people who did extremely on their childhood, but they don't shine anymore during their adulthood.

If you failed now, can you still say "It is good, since I learned a lesson for life" ?
The truth is you fail to grasp whatever you want to get right now. A failure is a failure.
But can you tell that the failure will close a better road to the future?
even more, what if this failure will lead you to a better future ?

You can't compare the future.
Whether you succeeded reaching your goal or failed it,
how sure are you that one success will trigger a "better future" ?
how sure are you that one failure will close the road to the "better future" ?

In the end, we're just human who endlessly working for "better future"
We are so afraid that the future doesn't turned out to be what we have in our mind.
But if we know we have to work hard every seconds for that, when that "better future" will come to you?
