instead of using my school's all-day self-study time to work on homework, i spent it on coding club prep and trying to get a damn slack bot to work, and idk whether to feel horrible from procrastinating or feel great that i got the oauth side to work and got the slack bot to post messages on behalf of users
~yes, i'm using repl.it's database temporarily, but i'm switching to postgres later~
helping make a battlesnake tutorial for my coding club!
Also here's some pretty sheet music color coding because polyphonic pieces are fun
Guess which piece this is
there's a type of seal in Antarctica that sounds like a synth 👀 check them out at youtu.be/jmZ8uLwyxIo
imagine if you try to play an electronic synth to them and they interpret it as "your mom ugly"
My mom's flower
made something small with css on jsbin and learned about using the windows game bar to record stuff on my computer! ~does anyone get the music reference?~aggggggggggh after hours of struggle I finally got the download image part of Doodle Month to work! NOW I CAN JUST WORK ON THE DESIGN PARTS YAAAAAAAAY
AAAAAAA I'M ADDICTED TO REACT NOW AAAAAAAA I can't even work at my computer without being tempted to work on this project
Watched this for AP Gov and decided nope. I don't want to become a Congressperson. Nope. Screw it.
Me learning React, one year ago: AAAAA REACT IS CONFUSING
Me learning React, now: React is so sexy :aww:
this is funny as hell :eggsdee:
I went on a run today and on my way home, I took a picture of a bunch of flowers. It's starting to feel more like spring here in the Bay Area while the rest of the USA suffers oof
Finally added a new feature to my bot @million_stats in #counttoamillion! Come to the channel to find out what ol' Drac wants to show y'all at midnight UTC...
Didn't do much today but I'll put photos from a hike on Saturday
developing a personal website! idk what sort of vibes to give it though because idk what kind of aesthetics fit me lol
...will probably stay as a WIP because school though
Huh, looking at all those Jojo memes somehow introduced me to King Crimson. 21st Century Schizoid Man's a great song lol
(also totally not showing off the Spicetify desktop theme I made last summer. You can make your own cool theme at github.com/khanhas/spicetify-cli)
after several months of doing absolutely no fiction writing i'm back at it with a severe case of writer's block
Watched Contrapoints's latest video about JK Rowling! Same analysis into political rhetoric as always (and how the way JKR phrases transphobic things makes it more digestible for the uninformed public), but it's somehow got different vibes to it and I can't pinpoint why, but I like the slight 2K21 change.
Customized my scrapbook website! Couple of small tweaks I need to make with the width/height of things but I'm too lazy to change them now lol
I've taken a giant chunk of text that's about ~3 mil characters (War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy, for the chads with 200-year old souls in here) and fed it into an RNN I made in a tutorial to generate text! And it kind of makes sense? (My next AI project for my independent study session in a couple of months should be to make an RNN based off of words & syntax instead of on characters, like in the tutorial!)
My school friend and I used :tensorflow: and :python: to make a GAN (a type of neural network) that generates decent color schemes? which is pretty cool 😄. I bet half the time it's overfitting lololololol, but I have no clue how to use Keras to get the loss so I can actually take a look at it & confirm
pink cats for valentine's day on google colab? aw yiss
Learning a new piece today by Rachmaninoff on the piano! That old dude has huge ass hands and I screwed up my wrists once from playing a piece of his, so I'm hoping that I don't break mine again from trying to bang octaves on the keyboard 😬
making a slideshow for a school project about a hypothetical day in the life ten years into the future-- I want to be a materials engineer!
used matplotlib for the first time to display color schemes we got from coolors.co! would be really useful when trying to generate color schemes with a GAN
I've created my first web scraping script in Python! Not very exciting, though, just getting color schemes to make an ML dataset.
I ran 6.91 miles on a mountain trail today (my personal record!!) and took some nice pikchas:
Learning about the basics of TensorFlow :tensorflow: to do machine learning! did you know that Google Colab has an easter egg where you can get corgis and kitties to walk across the top of the webpage? They also wear halloween costumes 🎃 and santa hats on Christmas 🎅
during our school's coding club, we collaborated together to make the cheesiest, most low-quality political website ever for Vermin Supreme, 2024. it was still really fun and a good way to introduce peeps to HTML/CSS 🙂
I learned how to make a text generator using TensorFlow, Python, and my writing as a dataset, and I got this weird mumbly jumbly stuff:
The first popcorn we've made in years using this super old bag we found in the pantry lolol
