Yup, it’s that time of the semester again.
The time where anything and everything can, and will, become a distraction.
From tomorrow until the next coming Thursday, I have 6 final exams. SIX.
WHY DID I TAKE SO MANY CLASSES?
I know why, because deep, deep, DEEP down inside, I must secretly love not sleeping and stress. Some people work better under pressure, right?
Anyways, last night I decided I should start studying for my Logic final that I have tomorrow. I made one crucial mistake. I told myself I was motivated enough to go home and study in my bedroom rather than stay on campus in one of the engineering lounges or 24 hour labs.
Nope. I caved worse than a shack in an earth quake.
So, instead of studying at 1am, like I was supposed to, I started playing around with my Rubik’s Cube sitting on my desk.
(Background: I have a huge collection of Rubik’s Cubes and have been playing around with them for almost 10 years.)
Then, my motivation switched from studying for an exam to……… “Hey, I wonder what a time lapse of solving a Rubik’s Cube would look like?!”.
I recently got a “new to me” 2014 GoPro Hero with time lapse settings. So yup, I spent an hour doing that last night before getting back to studying and it was SO worth it! It looks cooler than I expected!
For anyone curious, here’s the video.
Also, get a Rubik’s Cube, they’re awesome and great tools to learn basic algorithms with (here’s a link): http://amzn.to/2pnyQr5
Yeah, that’s how my night went. Now, I’m procrastinating by writing this blog post ;).
Stay tuned for my further procrastination methods.
