Sabbatical Update (Week 14)

September 10, 2021

Summary: (3 September 2021 to 9 September 2021) Continuing the Python class, reading Energy and Civilization, and tinkering with Raspberry Pi and Arduino.


I finished A Matter Of Degrees by Gino Segre and started Energy and Civilization by Vaclav Smil.

Last week

I am writing to you from a Raspberry Pi! It's pretty great. Check out my Ode to Raspberry Pi (and Arduino) post. I worked through almost all of the interactive textbook for my Python class. It was boring and tedious but worthwhile because I think I have a pretty solid grasp of the language now, and it's one of those languages I've been meaning to learn.

What's next

I've got my yearly camping trip with my brother and friends next week, Monday to Thursday. This year marks 10 consecutive years! I'm just going to focus the next couple of days around getting ready for that.
