summer tidbits by Joonho K. '20

01 i'm going on an alarming number of flights this summer. the two sets of flights to pheonix, arizona are work-related, but the rest comes out of my paycheck. TT i'm going to anime expo in LA this weekend, then visiting MIT friends in SF next weekend. i'm also taking a personal trip to portland, just to explore a nearby cool city on my own. :) i have no idea what's happening in august. 02 here is a graph of the flights i'm going on this summer, where the vertices are airports, and the edges are flights between them. i made a vague attempt at making the points geographically accurate. 03 if i'm at work on my macbook, this is the top bar / desktop summary i would see in 'mission control' (swipe up with three fingers on the trackpad). i like to have chrome and the terminal on one split screen, and use fullscreen sublime text with two split panes for coding. 04 i've been interested in <em>yojijukugo</em> (四字熟語, four-character compound words) lately. they're (usually idiomatic) phrases that are exactly four chinese characters long and often have really interesting meanings. here are some i liked while looking at https://dictionary.goo.ne.jp/idiom/. from top to bottom: 反面教師 <em>hanmenkyoushi</em> (bad example from which one can learn, good example of what not to do), 温故知新 <em>onkochishin </em>(developing new ideas based on study of the past), 疑心暗鬼 <em>gishinanki</em> ('jumping at shadows' - once you suspect something, everything else will seem suspicious), 慇懃無礼 <em>inginburei</em> (hypocritical courtesy - being so overly polite that it's seen as rude), 森羅万象 <em>shinrabanshou</em> (everything that exists in the universe) 05 some short-term and long-term goals i have in apple's reminders app. i said i would run more, but i honestly haven't been faithful to it and i really need to. >< i went to a smash tournament for the first time ever a few weeks ago in seattle, and i went to another one the week after that! ...i didn't win a single match. :( but it was still fun! and my goal is to win just one match one day... 06 this is a faithful yet heavily compressed representation of my chrome history on my work computer. mostly, i've been working with python, but also learning to use a lot of other things like AWS and test libraries and jenkins and the concept of a workflow.
