SoCal born and raised.
I play volleyball; generally twice a week.
Berkeley undergrad: computer science & math
My tag frequencies say kind of a lot about me.
I like thinking, stories, listening, you~
Welp. It’s still Tuesday for a few hours if anyone wants TMI about Value Iteration, Markov Decision Processes, Model-Free Learning, Minimax variations, Constraint Satisfaction Problems, or an analysis of completeness and optimality for various goal-checks in a parallelized version of A* graph search.
Then again, that might already be more info than you ever cared about regarding AI so why not ask your own question :P
Today is tuesday! Since classes started back up, days and dates have been rather indistinct. Apparently part of this week is already in February. I’ve got a feeling this semester is going to blur by. For now though, I am here to fulfill your deepest inquisitive desires (especially those about the nature of the physical universe).
Friends that I live with: not as often as I kind of want to. I really like hugs. In person, I would totally cuddle up with someone (except maybe not the first time I met them), there’s just societal norms and expectations that sometimes get in the way. If you’re a really good hugger, I might just run up to you and not let go for an extended period of time (assuming I know that you understand my oddities). I also have been known to hug people like four times over the course of saying goodbye.
There is this sort of tense moment when you first meet someone and you’re not quite sure whether a hug is too presumptuous and if a handshake would be preferable, but then that sets this weird oddly formal tone for the conversation, but you totally don’t want to creep them out and be like ‘come, place your face against my chest’ the first time you see somebody.
That being said, I would hug someone I’m meeting for the first time. As formal as I am with definitions and logical discourse and whatnot, my style is really pretty laid back. I don’t think I’m overbearing or whatever. I’m reserved in large groups (mostly because my interests/views might not always match up so well with social norms), but I really prefer more intimate conversations. I like spending time alone with people who I feel happy around and who seem happy around me. In those situations, I’m extremely open (in general).
And I don’t really have issues hugging anyone (except maybe hygiene issues heh). I prefer hugs to handshakes for my male friends from high school and such, as well. It’s just a nice way to express affection and closeness. Plus they’re all soft and warm and real. In that moment, you are vulnerable, connected to this person. I like hugs.
It’s hard enough to keep track of which day of the week it is over school holidays; it’s even worse when you have a rather volatile and unusual sleep schedule. In any case, it’s the beginning of a new arbitrary time delineation, and since I have a few things I’ve been wanting to focus on more, I will use this as an excuse to be hard on myself and try to actualize them.
For the next two hours, today is also Tuesday here so you’re welcome to drop by and ask something if you’d like.
