Ben Sollee

On Friday, October 7th, some friends and I  attended an Elephant Revival/Ben Sollee concert.

Although both groups ended up being pretty amazing, I originally went to go see Ben Sollee play.

The above is a (cellphone quality) video of Ben Sollee talking/playing. I’m pretty sure that is the same first noise that I heard on a cello. Haha.

Fun times…

Bonus: Here’s some pictures of Sparrow, Nate, and I (and Kirsten, my roommate, hiding in the first one) trick-or-treating in the residence halls.


I keep completely forgetting to post. Between school and life… I’ve been non-stop running. I’m ready for the semester to wrap itself up.





Always a Project

I’ve been having trouble remembering to write a blog post every week. The minute I feel ahead of school work this semester, I quickly realize I’m behind. There’s always a project. There’s always a homework assignment. There’s always a test.

It’s a race to the finish line where hurdles enjoy launching themselves out of the ground in front of you.

“Phew… finally finished that homework assignment. It’s finally the weekend…time to rel-oh wait… there is also a project and paper for this same class due this Monday.”

Really though, I am enjoying (most of) my classes this semester. There’s a lot more hands on assignments than past semesters. For example, the 3D printer which I talked about in a previous post and the little car that I’m building for my embedded systems course.

I wish I had recorded a video from the last project. The car drove around in little shapes (circle, figure 8, and triangle). I might have to upload that code again and make a future post showing that. Haha.

This video is from this weeks homework assignment.

Here’s another video from our updated 3D printer. The pictures above are from our first test print after the ramps conversion (different firmware and hardware from my previous post). The bottom of the cube turned out a little funky but the rest is pretty decent.

Anyways, have a great weekend, my friends.

Welcome, Fall.
