      I still exist. I'm still an electrical engineering and computer science student at the University of Texas. I'm currently living in Palo Alto for an internship at Google where I'm working with the virtual and augmented reality team on Project Tango.


      For fun, I've been playing frisbee, going on adventures around San Francisco, going to hackathons, and taking fun photos and videos with my camera.


      Yes, I realize that I've become a complete Silicon Valley tech hipster and college student stereotype.

      I know I'm definitely not as active in the RT community anymore. I feel that my favorite part about this site growing up was the people even more than the content, and that's what I miss most.


      Anyway, here's what I've been up to. Last summer, I interned on Chrome at Google. And I'm still in college as an EE + CS student at UT Austin. I'll 100% admit that one of the reasons I went to Austin was because I was way into RT when I was applying to colleges, so I applied to UT. It's still a great school, and I'm doing well, so it worked out even if I ended up being less involved with RT than I thought. I haven't even actually been to an RTX since I started college. I always had something else. It's kind of sad growing up and changing.


      I'm going back to Google next summer to work on Project Tango which is one of those "moonshot" projects you always hear about when people think of Google. I'm working on the augmented reality aspect. It's actually really cool, and I'm crazy excited about the whole VR, AR, and Robotics stuff in the tech industry. More technically, I realized I like "real-world computing" which involves computer graphics, computer vision, and robotics. I like the tangibility of making something that's physical or dealing with something "real". That's probably the EE major in me talking.


      Outside of school and internship stuff, I've tried to do different things to be happier that isn't just code and circuits. I play frisbee a lot. I listen to a lot of music and am a huge fan. I like the emotion you get from it. I also watch a LOT of movies for the same reason. I still like photography/film, but I didn't really use my camera much my first and second year of college. This year (which is my third), I've gotten to use it more. I also was severely underweight, I'm like 5' 10" and I was 110 lb at the beginning of the semester. I don't want to be stacked and look like a cloud, but I'm trying to gain weight to be healthy. I'm like 117 - 120 lb depending on the day. I'm working on that, but it's hard gaining weight. I didn't sleep much last fall semester because I was mad busy and stressed out with classes, research, internship stuff, college orgs, and personal stuff. It's nice having the holidays to have a break and think about it and reflect a bit.


      I definitely don't tweet as much about RT stuff, and I have become a lot more offline when it come to my interpersonal relationships. But I still actually remember all my "internet friends" from this site. So always feel free to tweet at me and stuff. I can tell you all about Google or computers or movies or music.

      So I'm working at Google now so that's pretty cool. If you use Chrome for Android, I'm one of the people working on that for the summer. It's pretty cool that the stuff I'm working on is gonna ship to the 500 million users that use the app on their phone.

      I finished my sophomore year of college too. I really like Mountain View, but I'm looking forward to heading back to Austin so I can chill with my buds. Plus ACL happens around the time I get back and I like music, so that's nice.

      I also got on the front page of reddit over the weekend.

      This past week has been pretty awesome! So in my last journal post, I said I had an interview with Google for the Seattle office. Well, I didn't do too well at that interview. I thought that sucked at first. But it turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

      Tuesday, I had an interview for two more teams: one in LA and one in San Francisco. Both teams were for Android, Chrome and apps. I ended up getting offers from both! I decided to accept the offer for the San Francisco office. So next summer, I'll be heading to Google's HQ to work as a software engineer intern on Chrome for Android! Like honestly, it feels fucking unreal!

      And today I had an interview to possibly be a technology intern at a really cool company over the spring. Honestly, I'm so happy! smiley0.gifsmiley0.gifsmiley0.gif

      Anyway, it's finals week at UT, so I better study more for differential equations smiley12.gif

      Hey Sean, thanks for the avatar. Was wondering this when i posted the request... Have you ever seen the show "One piece"? if not, i think it might be something you'll like. i can't seem to find it on tv, but this sight i know has an extreme amount of episodes. when you get the chance, check it out-------------------------> www1.watchop.com/page/one-piece-episodes-engli... also thanks again for the avatar :)

      hello, i hate to bother, but can you make me an achievement hunter avatar? if you can, can you make it with a picture of my favorite cartoon hero "Monkey D. Luffy" from the anime/manga show "one piece"? also if you do, if possible, make the background logo circle red and the star the yellow color of his hat. if you would do this for me, then you would be awesome. me+no job=not affording photoshop :(

        hey, if its alright, can you delete the post of the avatar i asked you to make? no offense, but it would be odd of someone to use the same picture as me, don't you think?

      • Sean Tango

        4 years ago

        I got Gus's award by accident. I pissed him off. Turned out it was site bug. It was like an apology sort of because at first I got the "Can't get Gus's award" award then I got his award.

        I don't know exactly why I got Matt's award, but I think it was a comment for the news post for the first RT short.

        For Kathleen's it was a good deed. Go do something good! smiley0.gif
