Hello World

I’m currently taking a break from my “conventional” studies at Tufts University, a liberal arts college in the states, in exchange for an unorthodox semester abroad at Auckland University of Technology.

This semester I’ll be studying Creative Technologies. A very project based, self-directed, programme at the university where you explore innovative and creative ways to make use of technology. At least I think that’s what I’m doing. To be honest, I’m not really sure what to expect.

As a straightforward computer science major back home, everything is very mathematical, very theoretically, and at times very difficult for me to grasp as a right brained person. It’s discouraging at times, but then I remember why I love programming. It’s pure creation. An art where the end product is a functioning (mostly) and practical (mostly) program that serves a purpose greater than yourself. And that program can be anything that your heart desires.

When I was little, I wanted to be an inventor. This is probably the closest I’m going to get. And now I have a whole semester to invent whatever I want.

Get ready.
