KGSP - Winter is Here

Even though it's technically not winter yet, it's certainly feeling like it. The temperature in the last few weeks have been in the single digits, dropping below zero during the night. But, as we all know it's not really winter until it starts to snow.

And snow it did. We had first snow a few days ago and despite it not accumulating at all, it was still nice to see snow. I missed it a bit. Too bad it doesn't really accumulate here in Korea. I wouldn't mind it being like 5 degrees colder or something if it did stick around.

Snow is also notoriously hard to capture in a camera from a distance.

So yea, it's starting to feel cold. Other than that, this week has probably been the most "graduate student"-esque in a while. I was conducting user studies and working on thesis presentations and stuff so that's been different.

One of the classes I'm taking is a Game Studies class and we ended up deciding to do a study on the GUI of League of Legends. Which is like, ok I guess. I'm not the biggest fan of League of Legends, but the study itself is kinda interesting.

I'm getting kind of sick of watching it over and over again though.

The big thing though is that my thesis topic presentation is coming up. Overall it's not too exciting, but it's the beginning of the long process of actually doing my thesis. The first thing is just presenting about what I actually want to do my thesis on.

I'm pretty excited about it actually. For one, I'll be using the HoloLens which is like my favourite device right now, and it's also gaming related which is always a plus. I'm a bit worried about the work load though, since I have a lot of stuff to do in addition to my thesis.

It's gonna be explosive.

I still need to prepare my presentation a bit though. Slides are done but I need to make sure I don't go over the time limit. Which is tough because I need to talk slowly because my normal talking speed is apparently too fast.
