University

Usually I like to write private reflections that go into a lot of detail, including about the people that I’ve had the fortune (or misfortune) to meet. But, for a change, I decided to do my reflections in a more public setting, to maybe better distill what I’ve experienced and learnt throughout four years of higher education.

A Poster Update

2016-09-06 16.14.542016-09-06 16.14.46

Went to IKEA and got some frames for my posters. It’s the Marietorp frame, which was pretty much the cheapest poster frame I could find from there. It’s not of the best quality, but it works just fine.

Trying to put my posters in straight was an exercise in hell, and I’m still quite sure some of them are a little crooked inside. My dad helped me mount them, and they look much better than without frames. That, and the Blue-tack was just useless at holding the posters up.

Portal

It seems a little dumb for me to build a gaming PC but not actually play games. Of course, I want to, but I often spend my time re-reading fanfiction instead of playing games, or catching up on movies or TV shows.

(Yea, I’m a weirdo.)

Anyway, I recently bought a whole bunch of games during Steam’s Summer Sale, and I decided randomly to just give Portal a go. And man oh man, am I glad I bought the game and played it.

First Lady Michelle Obama Carpool Karaoke

The Obamas are pretty much the coolest Presidential couple I’ve ever seen. Well, Justin Trudeau might give them a run for their money in the years to come. But still.

I think internationally, most observers don’t get the hate so many Americans have for Obama. Some of it is warranted of course; I definitely don’t condone the drone strikes. But his work in the White House has been hampered by the Republicans since they retook the House and Senate just two years into his tenure, and he’s struggled to compromise and push through relevant reforms. Still, he’s not the worst US President by a long shot. Especially not when Trump is in the race to replace him.
