      Some of you may know that my day job is working as an Event Coordinator. Now, normally the events I help organize are super boring. For example: one of my clients is "The American Society of Cell Biology". If you're into that I'm sure it sounds riveting, but it doesn't do much for me. Essentially, most of the shows we do at this company are trade shows or associations.

      However, recently our company acquired a contract for a show that's actually interesting. It's "The Midwest Anime and Manga Convention". And I was lucky enough to be a part of the team that sets up the registration and exhibits portion. With around 15,000+ attendees expected it's a pretty decent sized show.

      I'm excited because if I do choose to continue the career path of event management, these are the kind of shows I'd like to be involved in. Anime Conventions, Video Games, Comic Cons, etc., I understand that culture and connect with those kinds of people much better than "The American Society of Cell Biology" (who are great people by the way, just not very exciting people).

      That's all I got. What about you guys?

      I figured it was time to retire the old tardweasel name and go back to the old old khurram_89 name. I tried to change it to just "Khurram" but apparently THAT ACCOUNT IS ALREADY TAKEN SOMEHOW. What's funny is that I commented on it 9 years ago and completely forgot that I did that.

      Time is weird like that.

      Dear Roosterteethers,

      I depart for Austin tomorrow morning. I hope to see many of you there. Feel free to yell out "hey tardweasel". Or you can call me Khurram. If that's too hard to pronounce you can also call me Corey, Mr. K, Dr. K (Disclaimer: Not actually a doctor.), or Kraft Dinner.

      Sincerely,

      Tardweasel

      (seriously if you think you see me feel free to say hi, here's what my stupid mug looks like)

      I forgot to mention last week that I finally locked down my hotel and flight for RTX. This will be my first RTX ever and my first fan convention in over 10 years. So, needless to say, I'm pretty damn excited.

      Who will I see there?
      Who will I not see there?
      Why not?
      I need 50 pages done by tomorrow.

      Normally, sappy quotes aren't really my thing. But this one really struck a chord with me:

      It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.

    • Five Facts

      4 years ago

      khurram_89 Nerf herder

      I'm kinda late to the party, but I'm bored at work so why not?

      1) I work as an Event Coordinator for a living. I wish my company organized events like RTX and other fan conventions. It would make my job infinitely more fun. Unfortunately, we only do business/association fairs and all that fun stuff. I can't complain, the job is good, it's money (dolla dolla bills ya'll), but what I really want to do is:

      2) Screenwriting. I've been writing (almost) everyday for a couple of years now. I know it's a pipe dream to want to do it for a living, but at this point I just can't stop writing. It's a compulsion (like meth or Netflix). I have yet to write something I'm proud enough of to share and shop around, but I'm working on it. It's hard to write and keep up a full time job.

      3) I've never been in a serious relationship. Sure I've dated and stuff, but I've never really found someone to stay with for a length of time. I think part of it is because I'm selfish. I'm at a point where all I care about is focusing on myself. On top of that I'm:

      4) Extremely competitive (God, I sound like an asshole). Probably to the point where it's unhealthy. I swear I'm not a dick about it, but I always feel the need to do things better than the person next to me. I even enjoy competitive video games (Starcraft 2) more than anything.

      5) I've been on this site for over a decade and have never been to a community event. I've never met a staff member or any community member of this site in real life. The only real regret I have in life is not going to RvBTO (2006, I think). I was in Toronto for the summer and everything. I used to be way more introverted than I am now, and was super nervous about going by myself without knowing anyone. That will change this year, (assuming the world doesn't end) I'll be attending RTX 2015. So hopefully I'll meet some of you!

      That's about it... this kind of got more personal than I thought. Either way, thanks to @caleb for the inspiration.

      pretty much, yeah. i know the air force base next to my grad school used it a lot for image analysis. seeing what changes in satellite pictures so you can tell if something is out of place or on the move or whatever. pretty cool stuff to see. i never got that big into it, but from what i've seen them and one of my friends do, you can pretty much rule the world with it

      student loans are a douche. nothing more to it. i hope you can get into that, though. if you like it, that's all that matters.

      completely off topic, but not really at all. if you are looking into a graphical component, it might be worth looking into a class on matlab. that is a god among gods when it comes to anything graphical. image extrapolation and enhancements, super high-tech data representation, etc. all are usually done with matlab. then again, that's more a scientific use rather than an animation core (which it might also be able to do, though i'm not sure). wouldn't be surprised if someone ported openGL to it or something crazy like that

    • sev_ered

      i do that all the time. except when texting. i text back right away. but anything online like email or facebook, i just put it off thinking i'll get to it in a second........then that never happens until waaaay later.

      java is pretty cryptic, so i can totally understand it being tricky without prior coding experience. but when you get ahold of it, it's pretty damn powerful. and very forgiving, from what i hear. you can code stuff that should crash the shit out of it, but it'll still run. which is good cuz it gives you more freedom. but is not so good if you want good programming technique.

      working at a nuclear power plant would be badass, i'm not gonna lie. my dad used to work at one (he was their computer guy for networking and system analysis), actually. they have constant drug checks, though. he couldn't even eat poppy seed bagels cuz they'd show a false positive for pot, haha

      it should still be true. i've had a couple people in the physics field as well as a recruiter tell me it would be pretty easy to find a job within the past month, so i doubt much has changed since then.

      radiation physics sounds pretty awesome. how would you apply it to clean energy? everytime i hear radiation physics, i automatically think of medical physics, which is why i ask.

      java is some useful stuff. i ALMOST wish i'd learned more of it instead of just how to make it do calculus. but i was just way too set in c/c++, then objective-c. i still kind of wanna learn python just for the universality of it, though. maybe some day............maybe..................STOP!

      glad you'll be done with summer classes soon. though i doubt you'll have much trouble finding a job. i've been told by everyone that our field isn't hard to find jobs with, especially with higher degrees. so no worries there.
