      I feel like I should write a journal here at least once a year. Since
      it's been that long since my last journal, I'll do this Christmas card
      style and just tell you what's happened in my life since my last
      journal.


      My friend online that I told you about has moved in.
      He's a bit more grump in real life, and oddly enough, we're more polite
      to one another when chatting online rather than in person. But aside
      from that, having him as a roommate has gone smoothly. He now have a job
      as a pizza delivery driver. And his contribution to the rent is helping
      my finances so my family can afford my college tuition.

      I've 


      been in college for 6 years now. I got my biology degree, now I'm trying
      to get my computer science degree so I can get into grad school for
      bioinformatics. This summer I was making a bioinformatics program as a
      project for some instructor that should help me get into grad school. I
      just finished it, so now I have a clear mind to catch up on other
      projects (like this journal).


      I brought cat tabby from my
      parent's house to live in my apartment. She's 16 years old now. She's
      been with me for most of my life. I want her to spend the last part of
      her life with me, and she seems to want to do the same given how much
      she likes to lay on my chest.


      That's all I have for now.
      Hopefully I'll be making more of these journals soon. I like staying in
      touch with my friends. If I haven't read your journals yet, go ahead and
      tell me. I'll do it immediately so we can stay caught up with each
      other's lives.

      I have a very close friend that I met online. I call him "Refa", but he's recently gone by "Adel". I met him on RoosterTeeth 5 years ago. He is already a couple of days into his drive here. Tomorrow we'll meet in person for the first time. I think my life is definitely going to change tomorrow. I'm really excited and nervous.

      - Public elementary schools start using video games like minecraft for education. But the instructors aren’t properly trained how to use these new tools, so it doesn’t end up helping anyone. Rather than blaming lack of forethought and bad management, politicians use this as a new talking point to further cut education budgets.

      - Former president Barack Obama starts his own lets play channel on youtube.

      - The Internet of Things becomes the most popular electronic gimmick. Half of your electronic devices including your toaster, washing machine, and hair dryer will be able to display your twitter feed.

      - A television network tries to capitalize on internet jokes and makes a show exclusively about them called “Meme Team”.

      - Cable news shows start talking about “cultural warfare” constantly whenever mentioning social media.

      - A bunch of practical software is made for universal device management. Now you can use your smartphone to oversee the security of your vehicle, test/silence your smoke alarm, get alerts about your laundry being finished, and get reminded when food in your fridge gets expired. But you can only do half of these things on an iphone, and half of them on an android phone.

    • Life update 2/2

      1 year ago

      FoxboyPrower

      I went on a vacation with my family to New York City. I was interested in seeing how a city with such a dense population functions. After visiting the place, my guess is that it functions solely from its lack of modern convenience technology. If it wasn't for the mobile devices and the occasional wifi city station, the place looks like it's a decade behind in technology. I can't remember seeing a single vending machine there. I guess that's how they keep so many people employed.


      At the moment I'm taking a summer class in linguistics. That's my summer so far.

      I have been locked out of my furaffinity account for a month. I couldn't access the email they were sending security codes to. So that's why I haven't posted a journal in a while.


      Last semester I finally passed calculus 2 with a C. So that means I don't have to take it again. After all the calc2 courses I've taken, I'm very very happy about that.
      I also passed programming 2 class. So now I can program fairly well in c++. But I've decided I'll pursue programming projects using python instead.

      Also, if you read this journal, please leave a comment. I want to figure out who reads these things for a future project.
      You can you comment "I read it." or "hi" if you don't know what to say.
    • Rabbit hole

      Do you ever look up something that leads you down a rabbit hole of strange topics?



      I just did today.



      I started it out by telling a friend about how much I loved sharks as a kid.
      To

      test my memory, I looked up "Rodney Fox" to see if I was remembering

      that name properly. From there, I'll just give you a list of my search

      history.

    • If you liked zootopia(spoiler free)

      1 year ago

      FoxboyPrower

      I'm a pop culture slowpoke. I just saw zootopia last week. And I took me this long to get around to writing a journal. But I'm not writing this about zootopia itself. I wanted to make a suggestion for those of you that want more anthro entertainment.

      There's an anime on Crunchyroll called "Polar Bear's Cafe". The show is very relaxed, carefree, and very charming. It's a ray of calming sunshine among the rest of my entertainment. But don't think that means it's boring. This is a show with anthro animals, and the way things work is quite bizzare. Unlike zootopia, "Polar Bear's Cafe" does have humans. It takes place in a version of Japan where anthropomorphic animals and humans live alongside each other.

      In most anthro entertainment, this means the writers will use this as a way to speak out about social injustice in our own society by drawing a parralel between the fictional animals and real life minorities. That's a good thing, but Polar Bear's Cafe doesn't do that. After all, there's plenty of excellent anthro entertainment doing just that. In "Polar bear's cafe", animals and humans have very few problems living together. Predation isn't a concern. There are no anthro fish, and since this is Japan, everyone just eats those for meat.

      The main character is Panda. Panda is a panda and works as a part time panda at the zoo since his mother insisted he get a job. Being a panda at the zoo wears Panda out, so Panda only works as a panda twice a week. If any of that sounded strange, you're getting a glimpse at how bizzare this show can be by just treating all of this as normal everyday life. It only gets stranger as the show goes on, but I'll let you see that for yourself. http://www.crunchyroll.com/polar-bear-cafe/episode-1-polar-bears-caf-595187

    • How College is going

      1 year ago

      FoxboyPrower

      Last semester I did really badly. This semester, I'm taking 12 hours. All the classes are ones that I started the previous semester. But this time I'm working really hard on them. I haven't played video games for a couple of weeks. And I'm striving to get the homework done ahead of time rather than at the due date. Not to mention that I've made a bunch of digital flashcards on Anki. It feels good to be on top of things. But I haven't had much time at all for chatting with friends like I used to. If you're wondering how my life is going, now you know.

    • College 2

      1 year ago

      FoxboyPrower

      I graduated with my B.S. in biology last year. My plan was to go into grad school for bioinformatics, but it turns out I need a lot more computer classes to do that. I started working on a computer science major at a state school last fall. My first semester went very poorly. I put all my time into calc2, but half of the calc2 class failed because the exams were too tough to finish on time. So all the classes I'm taking this semester are courses I started taking last semester. But I'm sure things will go better this time.

      It's been years, but "Stolen Heart of Fire" is finally finished. I'm sorry I kept you all waiting this long. This story being unfinished has haunted me for a long time. I vowed to start no more projects until this one was finished. But now it is!

      I even made a complete PDF version of the entire story. Now you can read it offline in one file. Download the story here: https://goo.gl/uRjYMA

      I just hope there are some of you out there that still care about it.

        I would agree with the ability to reason and form ideas is what I would consider being a fundamental quality of being sentient. This is why it is disappointing to me that so many in today's society seemingly use our cognitive abilities so sparingly, subjecting themselves to being physically active, rather than mentally. It makes me sad that so many are okay with living as such, however, each person's choice belongs to them, so I cannot judge that our shared lifestyle would be better for them than there current position. It is just that I am able to experience so much more at the higher level that I do not understand why others would not pursue the riches of knowledge and high order thought. It baffles me.

      • FoxboyPrower

        Thanks. I enjoy having abstract thoughts. The ability to reason and form ideas is what I would consider to be a fundamental quality of being sentient.

      • dthomash

        4 years ago

        Well, just in general. When you speak you normally do so because you have something meaningful to say, and when people think out their words, often I am exposed to concepts I have never thought of, or at least in a direct way. A specific example being one of your more recent journals about work ethic, which allowed me to do a little self reflection.

      • FoxboyPrower

        4 years ago

        Oh thanks. It's nice to hear that... Was it something specific I said? I probably forgot. X3
