I know I'm definitely not as active in the RT community anymore. I feel that my favorite part about this site growing up was the people even more than the content, and that's what I miss most.
Anyway, here's what I've been up to. Last summer, I interned on Chrome at Google. And I'm still in college as an EE + CS student at UT Austin. I'll 100% admit that one of the reasons I went to Austin was because I was way into RT when I was applying to colleges, so I applied to UT. It's still a great school, and I'm doing well, so it worked out even if I ended up being less involved with RT than I thought. I haven't even actually been to an RTX since I started college. I always had something else. It's kind of sad growing up and changing.
I'm going back to Google next summer to work on Project Tango which is one of those "moonshot" projects you always hear about when people think of Google. I'm working on the augmented reality aspect. It's actually really cool, and I'm crazy excited about the whole VR, AR, and Robotics stuff in the tech industry. More technically, I realized I like "real-world computing" which involves computer graphics, computer vision, and robotics. I like the tangibility of making something that's physical or dealing with something "real". That's probably the EE major in me talking.
Outside of school and internship stuff, I've tried to do different things to be happier that isn't just code and circuits. I play frisbee a lot. I listen to a lot of music and am a huge fan. I like the emotion you get from it. I also watch a LOT of movies for the same reason. I still like photography/film, but I didn't really use my camera much my first and second year of college. This year (which is my third), I've gotten to use it more. I also was severely underweight, I'm like 5' 10" and I was 110 lb at the beginning of the semester. I don't want to be stacked and look like a cloud, but I'm trying to gain weight to be healthy. I'm like 117 - 120 lb depending on the day. I'm working on that, but it's hard gaining weight. I didn't sleep much last fall semester because I was mad busy and stressed out with classes, research, internship stuff, college orgs, and personal stuff. It's nice having the holidays to have a break and think about it and reflect a bit.
I definitely don't tweet as much about RT stuff, and I have become a lot more offline when it come to my interpersonal relationships. But I still actually remember all my "internet friends" from this site. So always feel free to tweet at me and stuff. I can tell you all about Google or computers or movies or music.
